As for your machines:
8.5/10, looks like a good gamer. Go SB.
7/10, Nice little laptop, might want more than 2gb of memory though.
9/10, HTPC is built like a HTPC. Looks great, but a SSD would make it more quiet. Also C2Ds tend to run warm, a newer CPU might run cooler and make less heat. Out of curiosity, how loud and warm does your HTPC run?
Yea, i have 4gb for my lappy, i forgot to update my profile
The HTPC is silent (in my noisy ass house at least) i think i have only 1 fan in there, maybe two, but it's undervolted and clocked at 3ghz. The temps are a little over room temperature, i forget exactly, but well within limits.
and 10/10 for your rig - Very nice setup
