    Back from Best Buy! We got distracted by cooking gadgets, anime, video games, and some cool hologram advertisement thing. We also didn't buy anything, because my friend got pissed off at a salesdude.

    Me and my friend: -Walks past the laptop tablet table whatever-
    Salesdude: -Motions Sora and friend over to the table- blahblahblah Looking for a new blahblahblah for your blahblahblah... You can blahblahblah with this and blahblahblah...
    Me: I'm sorry, we don't---
    My friend: Can it play Doom 4?
    Salesdude: Well no, but blahblahblah, and you can remove the keyboard when you want to take it on the go, and blahblahblah...
    My friend: But it can't play Doom 4.
    Salesdude: No, the specs aren't that high... It has blahblahblah...
    My friend: I'm buying a computer to play Doom 4.
    Salesdude: Of course, you can do that, but blahblahblah, and this computer is great for blahblahblah, and you can buy it an your on the go PC, and blahblahblah...
    My friend: This place sucks. Goodbye.

    Not exactly what went down, but close enough. We left shortly after.

    Well, we went driving around to see if there was anywhere else selling PCs. Not successful, but at least it was a start.

    I did find out he's going to get that machine he has right now fixed, though. He says he wants to turn it into a low-end emulator machine. Not a bad idea, actually.

    I think he's gonna make a formal complaint to Best Buy, too. All "your salesman talked down to me and implied I was stupid for wanting a machine that fit my needs! Fire his ass!"

    Not implying. The salesman was totally right about his stupidity.

    Update: He got a massive $550 beast. Within the first hour of setting it up we found he made a typo in his logon password during setup, but didn't know what the typo was, so we had to do a system restore to get back into the computer after a restart.

    And Doom still doesn't work. It loads, sure, but it's very laggy.

    You could theoretically do that if you found a bluetooth keyboard small enough (or made one yourself)
    And there are accessories for some phones that do just that.
    So that one is not actually that ridiculous and would be rather cool, might be a lot of work though.
    At least he has a good excuse; being 7 years old :P

    I'm going to guess that if it was only $550 it probably doesn't meet the minimum requirements. DOOM requires a pretty decent modern gpu to run properly

    lol, and the story goes on... At least he'll be able to play Doom 3 BFG... I think...

    If he wants to play Doom 2016 so badly, why not try to convince him to get a PS4 or XONE? It's been a while since I checked this thread so I don't know if this was suggested.

    Same here... I swear... either people act dumb to have their hands held and problems solved for them or they really refuse to learn their way around a PC.

    I know most games on steam have a minimum requirements and a Recommended requirements. Is having the Minimum able to make it least function in playable state? (Best framerate, No graphical glitches.) Of course i know is always better to have recommended or higher but just wanted to know the limit of their minium specs requirement. :unsure:
