    Slightly reworked title "Are you looking for a new gaming laptop that can also double as a machine for school or work?" still very thin lol... Did management just come to you guys and say "you need to write something about back to school" or something?

    Maybe I can start a blog, and then get Danny Allen or whoever to come on and explain the recent sensationalism, spate of video-centric "articles" (some less than a full sentence in length), etc etc as well as what appears to be their pervasive advertising methodology - how it started, developed, and will evolve into the future (re the video ads in the middle of articles which were either removed or adblock updated for (thank sweet baby jesus)).

    Not just from you guys, but across the entire network. I think a lot of people would find it keen reading.

    Anyone looking to avoid a gym faux pas should watch the 'Broscience' youtube channel.
    Dom'll set you straight. He HAS to know what he's doing, he's too jacked not to, right?
