  1. The view is beautiful. Awesome
  2. Hey no problem! Yea I think Ill do that, thanks!
  3. yea i talked to them and they will not upgrade the card. They are telling me no notebook cards can be upgraded ever. I told them it has an open PCI-E slot and they didnt give me a straight answer about that.
  4. interesting. I bought the service plan through best buy if that makes a difference. So where would I go about buying one of these video cards? Thanks in advanc!
  5. Its a Toshiba. The link to it is in my original post. I really like it other than gaming performance.
  6. HeyWell it says it has a PCI-E 16x slot. Where do I buy a laptop video card from? Im pretty best buy wont upgrade it.
  7. Hey all. Well I gave in and bought this laptop from best buy since it came with a free printer. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1149206843338 Is it possible for me upgrade the video card so I can game on it easier? It says it has an open PCI-E 16X slot. PS I already upgraded my memory to 1 gig.
  8. Ive been looking at this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16834220028 Its got a 7600 with 512mb of DEDICATED memory. I really think I want to buy this now. I know I should wait for core2duo, but this deal seems to good to pass up.
  9. Its not a gaming laptop I want. Its a mobile laptop that can handle games I want. I think ive decided to stick around for the core2duo. I just hope itll be available soon!
  10. Awesome Intra. Thanks much! My student loan will be here in a week. Who do you recommend I buy my Core2 through?
  11. Well the turion x2 doesnt seem very good. The battery life looks worse and it seems slower. Any suggestions?!?!?
  12. Anyone? I might buy this one today. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1152228986939 Edit: Eh. I guess itd be better to wait for the core2duos...
  13. Wow we got a sick deal on laptops at best buy. How are the turion x2's????
  14. kickass. thanks! Well then I guess Ill wait. Is there any benchmarks for laptops comparing the two?
  15. Ok cool. So Ill just get a single 9 cell battery. Is the core 2 duo really better performance? If so Ill just wait for it... i heard its gonna be the same price.
  16. Well I think Ill be purchasing an E1505 Laptop from dell. The specs are Intel® Core™ Duo Proc T2400 (1.83GHz/667MHz/2 X 1MB L2 Cache) 15.4 inch UltraSharp™ Wide Screen SXGA+ Display with TrueLife™ 1GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz, 2 Dimm 120GB 5400rpm SATA Hard Drive 8X CD/DVD Burner (DVD+/-RW) with double-layer DVD+R write capability Dell Wireless 1390 802.11b/g Mini Card (54Mbps) 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce™Go 7300 TurboCache Integrated Sound Blaster® Audigy™ HD Software Edition 53 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery 85 WHr 9-cell Lithium Ion Additional Battery The final price is $1462. Is that a pretty good system for the price? Should I wait for the Core 2 Duos?? Thanks in advance!!!
  17. I configured an XPS M1210 for around 1700 and I think thats what Im gonna go with. I just hope 12 inches isnt too small...
  18. Thanks for the suggestions guys. i wanna keep it well below 17" though and it needs to have an ok video card. I wish they offered video card upgrades on the tablet pc. :-(
  19. Hey everyone!!!! Well I finally gave in and decided to take out a student loan. I really do need a laptop. I will be using for typing up papers, gaming, watching movies, etc. Ive been configuring systems on the sony, dell, and alienware websites and I gotta say the prices sure are inflated. Id like to stay under 2000 i think... Id like a high end video card, good processor, and good battery life. My girlfriend is going to school 4 hours away so Ill need something to do while Im on the train. Hmm it might be easier to list my requirements - - Preferably under $2000 - Would like it to be portable (Would like to stay well under 17" I think) - Needs a good processor and video card for gaming - Battery life needs to be atleast 3-4 hours - Atleast 1 gig of memory Also, I heard the core 2 duos are kicking so Im probably going to wait until the centrino is available with that, unless turion x2 is better? Yea. I really need some help picking one out. Thanks in advance for suggestions and help!!!!
  20. Hey thanks for the reply radio. I actually tried factory defaults and still no dice. :-/ i was thinking I had to set the router's DNS to the modem's IP? Or maybe im just being stupid lol. But this has me really confused. I tried 2 routers to no avail.
  21. Hey all. My friend just got comcast(going from DSL) and her wireless stopped working. I assumed it was because Cable doesnt use PPPoe like DSL does so I configured the Linksys Wireless router for DHCP and it still doesnt work. Connections are all fine and the modem works when directly linked to a machine. Do I have to input any other settings in the router like subnet mask or internet ip address? Ive never set up a router with comcast. If anyone can provide any insight Id GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
  22. Dang. :-/ Well my memory seems to be doing great. i dunno if his memory showed any indications of crapping out. Maybe Ill try a new battery soon.
  23. blah that bios messed things up alot. lowered overclock and made blue screens and a bunch of other stuff. Im sure it was just an improper flash or something, but either way it still gives the fail-safe bs. :-/
  24. awesome!!! this is exactly what I was looking for! And yea guys, hehe I accidentily did put asus there yesterday; I guess Im the one going crazy. :-P
  25. haha :-P Well i got RAID up and running!! downloaded a new driver disk online and that got it goin. Still gotta figure out the "Your system is running in fail-safe mode" bios junk.
