A couple of things worth mentioning today.
1) I have a new Starcraft 2 machine on the way! yeah. Currently I play on a laptop with low settings etc. On low it is very playable on my machine but underwhelming to be sure. I ordered a new iMac 27" i7 Quad Core w/ 2 gig Radeon 6970m video card. So it's about move from a small laptop screen to a nice big 2560x1440 running the game on Ultra or Extreme graphics settings. Needless to say....very excited :)
2) Blizzard announced a benchmark for promotion (perviously this was very much hidden)
