New laptop arrived today :woot:

Cost about the same as a Sisley but hopefully it will rust less :D

Has that new wide/bright screen TFT with 128 meg dedicated graphics so might not be on much later trying some games ;)

Centrino M740 processor, 1gb ram, and should have 128 mb ATI radion x700 graphics but just noticed it's the intel 915 GM chipset which I believe is integrated graphics that I don't want and certainly didn't ask for, so may be going back. Just waiting for a call to confirm if this is the case.

Just keep an eye on your new computer's vacuum advance unit and check for rust on the bottom of the doors...am I losing the plot?!!!

so whats the problem?

Turns out the graphics chipset is integrated and about the cheapest available for value computers and considering i was paying £1300 for the spec i wanted they're taking the PI$$ so shall take my buisness elsewhere, glad I didn't pay them first.
