I will never use paypal or ebay again. To many scams. Western Union or Money Order is the safest way for the seller if you are comfortable. Through paypal he can put the money in your account. You take it out of your account. You send the items. A couple days later Buyer does a charge back saying you never sent the item. Buyer gets his money back, you are out the cash, paypal says you owe them xxxx dollars. You don't pay, they take it out of your acct, or send a...

Sophos is very good. One of the big AV companies. They mainly focus on business solutions, which is probably why most people don't know about them. They are based in the UK I beleive and have won numerous awards for their products.

Battery conditioning is pretty easy. First and foremost, charge it. Completely. ~12-16 hours. Then there are a variety of things that you can do to keep your laptop battery running in tip-top shape. Condition it every two to three weeks: 1: Completely discharge it and then recharge it completely. This will help the battery maintain maximum life. 2: When running off the AC power unit, only leave the battery in the battery bay when it needs to be charged....

I'm pretty sure they are almost identical, except that the WUXGA supports a higher resolution. Typically.... WUXGA = 1920 x 1200 WXGA = 1680 x 1050 I'm not familiar with the true life feature, but it is probably just a program you can install to adjust the colors a little easier. Both screens will have a beautiful picture, the screen is(most likely) glossy/reflective, which makes for a wonderful picture. If you take it outside, you will have trouble with...

The Intel Centrino processors reduce heat and increase battery life. These are the main reasons people buy them. They also allow for the case to be smaller and lighter because they don't have to make it as large for the cooling system. I never thought I would need a 4-5 hour battery, because I too am also most of the time near a power outlet. But it has come in handy more times than I can think of. On most Centrino Notebooks, 4 hours is average, depending on what...
