Cheap Gaming

 Today I made a plan for a young boy that just wanted to play some games with his friends, and was getting very frustrated with sharing the XBOX TV in the lounge with us all.

It is impossible for a parent to try and keep up with the constant changes of game requirements, and trying to fit a gaming PC into a reasonable budget (not even mentioning a notebook) is just impossible.

That was until now...

Had an old Toshiba Tecra S11 I got back from my daughter when she got her school Chromebook, upgrade the RAM from 4Gb to 8Gb, dropped in a 200Gb SSD and reloaded Windows 10.

Registered for the free GeForce Now trial and now he prefers playing Fortnite on this rather than the XBOX because it loads quicker than the XBOX!

Happy gaming son!
