Ken Sanramon - They closed the other thread.

Hey, just wanted to wrap things up. They closed that other thread for some reason. Is there a cap on the amount of replies a thread can have?

Anyway, I didn't pay too much at all over 2000. I got an educational discount, which was cool, and everything else I wanted.

This notebook will definitely gets its use by 2006-07. Since I've never been one to keep on top of the ball in regards to computers, I'm sure it will still get a lot of use even when the 64 chips come out, and much past Longhorn. Remember, I'm still using Windows 98! Happy

I'm stoked, and I can't wait for it to get here. They said expect it by next weekend.

Thanks again,
-Plink-

Yes, I saw your comments finally on X1000forums --there are so many posts over there I can't check it everyday as the new posts aren't marked if you don't read them all the first time in.

Yes, there is a limit on Cnet for posts but that is when everyone replies to the message directly above it.

You can get around this by replying to the top message or any one but the one at the bottom of the thread.

I did see you got 64mb dedicated video RAM and the 14.1" LCD so you should be happy with that (with the decreased weight) if you don't watch widescreen DVD's a lot on the notebook.

Hey Ken, one more question.

I want to get 512mg of ram for my T42. What's a good place that sells good quality ram?

I know about Crucial.com. There, and the Compusa aroung here, seems to have 512 for a little over 100$. Is that a standard price?

Thanks.

Crucial.com has quality memory at everyday prices. Yes, they are a bit over $100 before shipping for a PC2700 notebook RAM 512mb module.

Check out outpost.com under the memory area and select PC2700 RAM -- Corsair has a 512mb PC2700 module for $99.99

I got Kingston RAM on sale PC2700 512mb for 69.99 after rebates at Fry's Electronics about 5 weeks ago and then 2 weeks ago it went to $59.99 after rebates. You can check Kingston compatibility online but those prices are usually higher then when they have a retail sale. Sometimes Best Buy has Kingston on sale so watch the Sunday papers but the lowest I saw it for there was 89.99 after rebates.

Also, check Newegg.com --they have some brands people have used successfully for the $90 range also.

Finally, Compusa has PNY on sale at times (at one point it was $65 after rebate for PC2700 512mb RAM notebook memory -- some people with an X1000/ZT3000 series have been ok and a few have had a problem with it. You can also check the PNY website for compatibility.

Check the Sunday papers for the retail stores. If they don't have anything for less consider Outpost.com for the Corsair memory.....for 99.99....Corsair also has a website for compatibility.
