But then on the other hand, not everyone got in on the 99$ deal. I wanted one but didn't so I'll keep on saving until I can afford a Transformer or another tablet. It'll hurt the market, but it will recover in time.
Yeah, I didn't think they'd sell out around here, but I guess the city is more connected than I gave it credit for.
Oh well, I'm going to go around to the stores tommorow just in case one pops out of nowhere.
Damn, just checked all my local computer stores online stock and none have them. I would have jumped on either model at that price. Been eager to grab a tablet for a while, and at that price you can't go wrong.
EDIT: whole bunch for sale on Kijiji for 300$ though, assholes :mad:
I'm looking at getting a tablet for light internet usage around the house and outdoors, as a media player out and about and especially when travelling with my hockey team since our bus's will all be equipped with wifi starting this season. Will likely buy a Nook Color soon :)
I've never had a tablet, and after playing with my boss's iPad for a while, I really want one. And after a little reading, I've pretty much settled on getting a Nook Color and rooting it once the funds become available later this summer, unless something better comes up, which I highly doubt...
No kidding. I didn't even know about this game until 3-4 days ago... Bought it on Saturday and I can't stop playing. Probably my favorite 360 game so far.
I'm only still in Armadillo but I'm playing it quite a bit still. Love the hunting bit hehe
Damn, looks good. I also would buy it if I had the cash and were local. It's always been my favorite generation of Ford trucks, and I don't think I've ever even seen a Gen1 Lightning live before either.
Wow, just saw this. Awesome build, I have to admit though that the tought to do something similar crossed my mind more than once. And I had never seen thos belkin hubs, you can be sure i'm going to be getting myself one. Always wanted to have desk mounted USB ports.
Here I was looking for something to pass time at school, seeing as I have a few hours to kill this afternoon, and I stumble accross this on one of my favorite abandonware sites.
To further help with the promotion of Red Alert 3, it seems like EA has released the original Red Alert for free...
I'm also one of the suckers who will be buying a console this summer especially for GTAIV.
Well, I've wanted one for a while, but this is just the tipping point for me. I don't want to wait two years for the PC version.
I disagree with the last two posts.
Always go dedicated over integrated. Unless of course, a half hour of battery life is that much of an issue.
I know when I was shopping for my current laptop, having dedicated video was my first criteria of research.
I have a Vostro 1400 with a grainy AUO panel, unfortunately I slacked off during my 30 day cool down period and never called in to get a replacement screen, but it's not as bad as others have had and I can live with it. I still would much prefer it without all the graininess though ;)
Honestly, I have an old Toshiba here that I bought used from a friend, and a few friends have newer ones, and I wouldn't buy another one.
For an application like yours, I'd seriously consider an IBM Thinkpad or other business class models, a la Dell Latitude or such.
A friend of mine has an ASUS G series. His has an Intel processor though. I wouldn't mind recommanding them, he seems to love his and hasn't really ever said anything bad about them. Seems like a reallly solid machine :)
Well, yours has faster components so obviously it'll be faster.
But given the choice of having the T61 and the Vostro, similarly equipped and money being no object, I would take the thinkpad any day of the week. And I love my Vostro, but i've had two thinkpads previously and I do believe the...
I don't know about the other Vostros, but my 1400 both dimms we're under the laptop. A nice change from my IBMs and Toshiba's I had before where I had to take 3/4 of the laptop apart to change ram :(
I'd take a guess to say that the 1500 and 1700 would be the same...unless someone can confirm...
OpenOffice has made huge strides in quality and performance, but it's still not up to par with MS Office as far as I'm concerned.
If you're a student, you may want to take a look at this: http://www.theultimatesteal.com/ not free, but you can't beat getting a full version of Office 2007...
I don't know much about that ASUS series, but I do have a friend that has a ASUS G1 and he absolutely loves it. Though If I had your budget I'd be looking into staying with an Intel procesor though. Even with my smaller budget, that was a priority.
