Hey unleaded I think I bought the 1036 from you last week. You are Rawpower? I look forward to configuring the system. I get it on Friday

I read that the 1029 someone bought came with a pad for protecting the keyboard/screen, does the 1036 come with something like this?
I live in a western town not too far from your western town... you guys have a shop or something? I'd like to be able to see this unit in person if I could

The screen was shiny and HUGE but not to much glare. The speed and ease of installing the operating system was flawless right out of the box. I didn’t have to change any bios settings to begin Win xp cd install. Beware that you actually have the WIFI and blue tooth installed. If you don’t order it separately, you won’t have it. When you install the WIFI & Bluetooth drivers, windows manager shows ports evan when the card is not installed. After an hour of trying to get the absent WIFI to work, I was told that the MSI sight was wrong about integrated support.
Well that’s all for now folks. I hope to have more when I receive a working keyboard unit.
By the way, when I called about the (h) key gone bad, the vender immediately paid the return shipping OVERNIGHT!! That is great service.

I like the 1036 because I can still play some games (I mostly play strategy games so I don't need top of the line graphics anyhow) and have a nice big screen to do my more serious work with.
Is there anywhere to individually buy an emblem or something to put over the hole in the back of the monitor backing, or will I just have to cover it with a piece of electrical tape?
And what would the best reseller for this model be? I've never done internal work on notebooks (I can put a desktop together no problem) so I want one that's going to configure it before being built. Appreciate the help
