My new computer arrived today!

It's so fricking awesome to get new stuff. The only bummer is that I won't be able to touch it for another month.

Very "Buzzy"..Lol.. I really can not wait until I am able to get a laptop/notebook. I am holding off until atleast next summer before I go to college so I get the most BANG or "Buzz" for my buck, also by than Microsoft should be done pushing back Vista and Goggle will begin its second round of Beta testings.

I'm in Argentina, and the computer just arrived in frickin' Plano, Texas, at my father's house. And he will get it for me here on July 30th.

I'll be getting a new computer soon too. I'm excited already even though I'm not getting it till the week before school starts. I've been looking at laptops this week and will most likely go with the Dell XPS M1210.

Under 5 lbs - it is good to keep it light

However it looks a little 'chunky' (thick).

The Sony SZ is light and sleek at the same time.

Yep, I've looked at both. But the Sony is way out of my budget. I can get the Dell with the configuration I want (1.66ghz duo, 1GB RAM, 7200rpm drive, dvd burner, 9-cell battery, 3 year warranty) for $1500 CAD with taxes and shipping.

I looked at a bunch of options
by SantiagoCrespo / July 3, 2006 11:12 PM PDT

But the Sony and Toshiba ones were WAY out of my price range. plus I just had to throw 120 dollars for a new HDD for the old one, plus 51 bucks for a new battery, that way I increase the resale price.

You know..

I would love to get a laptop/notebook with that new 300 GHz chip. But I think it is a few thousands and thousands of dollars out my price range.. But I can sure dream it :-D

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
