  • Finally got a computer

    Went to office max last weekend and finally got a laptop. It's hp pavilion dv6830us. It has 3 gigs if ram, 240 gig hard drive and intel core 2 duo prosessor. It listed for 820 but they had 200 off and I convinced the manager to let walk out the door with it for 600. Big thanks for everyone who gave me advice to help me make the right (I hope) choice.

    Good luck with your new computer. Now, if something isn't working right you must consider the fact that it may be operator error

        Speaking of laptops, I just bought a MacBook (not Pro) and couldn't be happier. They're worth a look for anyone else shopping new laptops...

        Gear Junkie: once you get comfy with that laptop, you'll never want to e without one!

                How old is yours? Did you add stuff as upgrades? Some of it may have added extra weight. That happened to one of mine

                  Do a factory backup to DVD's ASAP before you get a virus or Spamware. Then get Spamware (LavaSoft & Spybot Search & Destroy are free) programs & update it & Virus programs every week. If you dont you will be sorry.
                  If you think you may drop it & break it you may want to get coverage for that from HP, it does not cost too much.
                  Good Luck

                      Nice going and good deal. Congratulations.

                      Please look here on the Pelican web site and find it a good tuff case. Sooner or later you'll be most thankful it was in a tuff case. I'm sure you know all too well about what can happen. Look at the lower right corner for the page 1 / 2 changer.

                      Some of the cases feature customizable foam where you can pluck out the little blocks and make it fit. This is great for the accessories so if you can, think BIG CASE. You'll love having all the little extras all in one handy place.

                        Way ahead of you on the pelican case. I'm a big fan of them. Saw a 7 ton truck drive over a rifle case and though it broke, the weapon was untouched.
