Well... I actually even fired up the "old" (2008) Dell XPS and waded through system updates to install and play the beta of RIFT. Now I'm in the 'headstart' (pre-order) and have purchased the game for pickup tomorrow. Really digging it, and not just for new content.
They clearly went to school on WoW and have a lot of improvements in interface, gameplay, and character mechanics. I'll blog more later (I'm taking a break from reading student papers).
