I know it sounds like I was joking but I really did buy an Asus Transformer TA100 with the ground-breaking quad core Intel Atom Z3775 and 2gb of ram. Whilst the hybrid tablet was pretty cheap ($550sgd) and achieves my objectives (a portable device I can sit on the couch with to 'utilise' my internet connection as well as connect to my TV, and running Windows just in case I ever need it and my Macbook Air/iPad aren't able to do whatever it is I need).

Full specs: http://www.asus.com/sg/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_Transformer_Book_T100TA/specifications/

So... Figuring the specs aren't too bad if I want to play the games from when I was growing up, I googled and found UT and UT2004 got pretty good performance reviews on this device so am currently debating which one to buy. Both are $10 on gog.com (but they are $10/$15 on Steam) so am just debating between the two.

I personally spent a lot more time playing UT rather than 2004 because it felt simpler, I loved playing CTF-Face and Instagib, as well as just sniping. But then maybe I never gave 2004 enough of a chance as I found the new mode (the one where you needed to hold multiple locations) quite time consuming to play.

Thoughts?

I ended up buying UT 1999 from GOG (and then when I booted up my Macbook Air 11" I realised I had already installed UT99 GOTY edition as I have the original CDs back home at my parents' house in Australia).

I really enjoyed playing Tactical Ops back when it was just a mod. So much fun playing that and the Seige map.

Also really enjoyed playing Jailbreak mod for UT as well.

Good memories!!!

Just tried UT2004 on my Surface 3 and it was pretty epic. Everything set as default except maxed out resolution at 1920 x 1200 (close to my Surface 3's resolution of 1920x1280) and 32-bit colour depth. Surprisingly smooth with no lag whatsoever. I'm starting to really like this little Atom tablet although I think the new CPU and 4gb of ram makes a huge difference over the Asus T100 which only had 2gb of ram and an older CPU.

Haha you're the 2nd person I've talked to (not counting UT forums) who played Tac Ops :) I did enjoy it more than CS for some reason back then.
