    I found I used my laptop all last year for Uni coursework, its much nicer using a 19” screen over the laptops 15” when I’m at home, I find it’s a lot easier on my eyes at higher resolutions.

    Me fancy, I believe you just said your using a 26” TV!! humm ;);)

    rigs already in my signiture so not much point putting that down. errrr.

    Temps: CPU runs at about 25-30 on cold, on full blast hovers about 35-40. Considering the overclock I'm pushing i'm really quite happy with that.

    just bought 8gb 1066mhz ;D soon to be installed in a couple of days. fun.

    ps: I know I g0ts bubbles. Took that not long after installing the w/cooling.

    My new Acer Aspire One, got it today for £180. I had £200 to spend so im very pleased I managed to get a nice Netbook for less.

    It came with Windows XP, however InsaneNutter helped me format it with Windows 7 Home Premium.

    Love it!

    Prepare for overheating issues with that laptop if you try to use it for gaming.

    That laptop is ridiculously thin. There's not much room to fit fans and heatsinks. And Core 2 Duos are hot processors.

    My PC is still basically the same spec as it was in the post i made back in 2008 really, I have just got a new motherboard as the other failed. I took that oppertunity to get a nice new case with much better airflow and replace my old IDE hard drives.

    I also got some new speakers, the pc now runs Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 and dual boots with Mac OSX 10.6.
