    Most laptop bang for my 1 grand of buck ??

    I recived my order confermation, and would assume that it would be some what obligating, or posably leagly binding for them to follow through on te deal. I realy doubt that IBM cares that if fiew people are using a discount that isnt theirs. They still made money off of me, and thats money...

    Most laptop bang for my 1 grand of buck ??

    If you are willing to go a bit over budget check out this student discount it dosent matter if you dont go there. It worked just fine for me. IBMs are not exactly the most machine for your money, but the quality is outstanding.

    Laptop won't turn on.

    By using the wrong AC adapater it is posable that your lappy may never work again. The ends on those are diffeant sizes for a reason. So that you can only input the correct voltage to them. When you go moding AC adapters to MAKE them work you are only making things worse. Look arround...

    Best Fan Grills

    LMAO Vantec tonado = OUCH!!! even plane jane fan grills provide more safety than the fancy ones. They are usualy jut for looks, and have lareg openings. Realy if safety were converned the mesh grills would be the best.

    Best Fan Grills

    I prefer just the standrd wire grill. Shure it may not look pretty, but it provides the safety fo not sticking your finger (or other body parts) into a fan, and costs you the least ammount of flow resistance.

    Rubber Fan Silencers

    Or you could gat a tube of RVT silacone and tur some blobs of that on it. Realy, as ong as your fans are secured tightly there will be no room for them to rattle and vibrate.

    Rubber Fan Silencers

    It wouldnt make the fan in its self any quieter, but it would indeed do what it is supposed to, that is, iw will danpwn the vibrations between the fan and the case. I would just get come rubber washers tho, it would be cheaper, and you can jsut get them at your local hardware store.
