i eventually got fed up with both my laptop and desktop. so i sold the Desktop and gave my sister the old toshiba.i ordered myself a little monster that will fit my needs for a litle while...behold: the asus C90s
it's an upgradeable laptop!
Intel Core 2 Duo Conroe E6600 2.4 GHz 1066FSB 4M
Built-in 2.0 MP Webcam with 2 microphones,
600M GT 256MB GDDR3 MXM 2.0
2GB DDR-2 667 SODIMM (2X1024)
Seagate Momentus 7200.2 120GB 7200rpm S-ATA 300
bluetooth/fingerprint reader/hdmi output/s-video output/3 usb 2.0 ports/Wireless 3945
little candy: Blue-Ray 2x/multidvd writer with lightscribe technology
it's a desktop replacement system. usually comes barebone for around 700 bucks, but with all those addons it costed me a little over 1.6k
fun part is that you can replace the video card and cpu...it accepts desktop cpu's up to 2.93 Ghz dual core.
not too shabby eh? and the very best part: win xp works on it!!!!!
