My new laptop: http://abstractinfluence.com/forums/vie ... php?t=5188 arrived this morning! managed to turn all the anoying microsoft safety crap and all the slowing down stuff in vista.

also, the thing im most prowd of - got my network all working, xp machine see's/interacts with laptop and vis-versa. this is something after checking loooaads of forums is apparently very hard.

well impressed with vista (once its all turned off) and the laptop is also the pimp daddy. installing ps soon.

yeh got the acer in the end, was from that online shop which turned out to actually be really really good. Very helpful on the phone, Had an issue with payment (my mum paid on a credit card cos I didnt have all the cash at the moment, and because its such an unusual purchase for her (ie doesnt normally spend £1000/$2000 on electrical goods it got "fraud protection" blocked, phoned up card company and got that sorted with some help from the company.

Got 3 year extended warrenty for £80 which covers anything that goes wrong, even accidental breakage/spillage and normal manufacture defects, and an acer bag/mouse for an extra £10.

Came next day as well.. impressed.

ps: vista is actually good, especially networked.

Sounds like you got a good deal for the extended warranty.

Hmm, Vista is actually good? May have to give it a chance, for now it's XP still.
