go into device manager and make sure everything is installed. i had that problem once, actually by right clicking and disabling "1394 Net Adapter" and just leaving the wireless and broadcom adapters up and running i was able to get it work. it was just a fluke i had to do once or twice, try it...
9300, with a wireless mouse/keyboard when im at home.
depending on your needs, if you have a pretty solid machine at home you could just invest in an ultra portable like an ibm x series of a dell 700m, some sagers and higher end lappys can be tiresome to drag with you everywhere you go...
so the lappy we ordered for my friends sister for college just arrived, and my first impression is just how damn solid this machine feels. It built like a freaking tank! But after playing around with it for awhile, i cant help but feel very underwhelmed by the display. I understand that its...
well, do it at your own risk, oc'ing a lappy can be quite dangerous
this guide was written for a 9300, im not sure how well it carries over to the 6000, i would do more reseach on it before proceding
you need to realize that the pentium m's are much faster than they appear when just comapring clockspeeds. the benefit you're p4 processor would have over a p-m would be the hyperthreading capability, but for what you listed you would be using the laptop, i dont think you would miss it. a 1.8...
2) About every month or so, here are some sites that list coupon deals
3) The wuxga screen comes in 2 models, one made by lg and one made by samsung. the lg is supposed to have...
personally my problems with moto phones are:
1) reception usually isnt as good as nokia
2) phonebook sucks ass! why oh why must it list contacts multiple times for each of their phone numbers. you either have the pain of going through your phone book and seeing joe...joe...joe...joe... or...
so are you going for a really nice desktop and the laptop is just for taking to class and playing the occasional game/movie on it?
how important is battery life/weight to you?
i think most people would say theat ibm makes the most solid laptop around, but they are some of the more expensive...
nokia 6230, hands down
ive tried 4 phones from cingular, this nokia is by far best in terms of reception, and up there in battery life as well, about a good 2 days with decent usage.
plus ive heard it can take an sd card upward of 2 gigs, so its great pretty good at playing mp3's as well.
from my experiences clicking from a hard drive is never a good thing
try googling for that tools program, but i would just call dell and get it replaced
edit: is this what your looking for?
toward the bottom? i dont know, if you have to...
mine was considerably faster than the estimated ship/arrival date given by dell.
i dont remember exactly, i think it was around 10-14 days from the time of order to arrival.
edit: i just checked, it was ordered 4/13 and arrived 4/27, so it took 2 regular weeks to build ship and arrive.
my friends sister is going off to college and was looking for a cheap laptop for schoolwork and such, no gaming needs really, so we went with that exact setup on the thinkpad r50e. seems like a steal considering its a thinkpad and all.
i was by no means endorsing it, i was just saying i saw it done.
they did however get very toasty, 55C @ i beleive, and for a small enclosed space like a laptop it definately doesnt seem all that wise to me either ^_^
sorry for the bad pics, but here ya are
the screen didnt come out soo well
60 gig 7200rpm hdd
17 inch samsung wuxga
everything else i think i left stock, so stock wireless and 1.6 proc
i saw some people pin modding some 9300's with the lower fsb (400mhz) and getting some pretty ridiculous speeds......
personally i have the 1.6 on my i9300, im not sure what the price jumps are for the higher procs at the moment, but for most light gameplaying that i do and not so intensive...
i configured this i6000, can anyone think of a better deal for less than 800?

i use the microsoft wireless elite keyboard and mouse that i had with my desktop on my 9300. im so used to the feel of my keyboard and mouse, i have a hard time getting adjusted to the touchpad in games (although im sure i everntually would adapt to it).
idk, personally not having an optical drive is a big issue with me, but i understand that you want something really small.
have you looked at a 700m, although i suppose 4.1 pounds is nearly twice the weight of that ibm........
it is possible with a select few cards at the moment, but with how it comes equiped i believe any change would be a downgrade. as for future cards, it is "possible" to upgrade in the future, but there is a chance that future cards might be a different form factor and not compatable with your...
apart from that, i think .pst copy is the way to go. i think even the cheaper brands of memory come with something like a 5 year warrenty on them, so i wouldnt worry about using it everyday.
