World of Warcraft is now free-to-play (mostly)

You can finally play Blizzard's MMO for free for as long you want... although you have to pay to get past level 20

Following the news of Team Fortress 2's free-to-play plans, Blizzard is introducing a new, extended trial period into World of Warcraft. Previously, newcomers could play the game for a limited amount of time before they either had to start paying or get out. But now, anyone can jump in and play any number of characters for as long as they want for free; the catch is that you're capped at level 20.

If that inspires you to enter the full game, you'll be able to then purchase it and the Burning Crusade expansion for $20. Anyone who currently owns the standard version of World of Warcraft is automatically getting The Burning Crusade for free.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
