Going back to posgrad work at uni, Im finding that Im needing a compy on campus and on worksites to work in projects.

A friend of mine's brother owns a notebook store and he offered me this ex display compaq presario laptop at 1/3 price + 3 year warrenty I jumped at the chance. At $600 I ended up with a notebook with specs similar to one I had 4 years ago but cost nearly $4000(which work paid for luckily ) Upon getting, the first *essential* things I did were:

*Nuke pre-installed XP Home and install XP Pro(the lesser of two evils)
*Put on a Salma Hayek wallie Mreow !!



but it's strictly for work First time Ive used a widscreen LCD though, nice
