Garda Posted December 30, 2006 Share Posted December 30, 2006 dick smith (kinda like radio shack for .au) was having a sale. i got this one not from dick smith, i went to another store and they price matched and took off 1% :) i was actually going with a couple other ones in mind, they were clearance stock, but i didn't want dirty display laptops that dirty people had been touching with their ugly grubby little hands you don't know who's been putting their dirty usb drives in there this is very simular to one of the ones that i wanted to get i think it was kinda an impulse buy at the same time cos i ended up leaving it at my mate's place for a week while i move home. But i'm so happy. I've totally wanted my own laptop for like ever. especially since at the start of the year when i moved out from my perant's place and have basically had no computer. Using computers at uni and having to borrow and do shit like that REALLY sucks. Saving my money feels really good now :) Problem is like most laptops i got vista home without an install cd. i'm thinking of just using knoppix and dd if=/dev/sda | gzip > /mnt/samba.mount.somewhere/image.img.gz and just burning that do a DVD in case i ever wanna actually use windows at some point on the computer, i did have to pay for it afterall. It's a 60GB SATA drive but i'm going to assume that most of that will just be zeros since it's a new hard drive. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
