Ok.... so, looks like I have some explaining to do! Firstly, no one likes to be falsely accused of something they are not guilty of. But, pride aside, I shall put an end to your missery. But, for the record, i accept your sincerest apologies... 1. I am not, and never have been associated with any computer company. 2. I live in the UK - across the pond, different time zone, (therefore this post is written during UK working hours) and no, its not part of Canada which i was asked when in California on holiday last year. (great state by the way - and no, I have no interest in the benefit of California in that statement either before you ask... 3.Laura is right in the next post after the above was written, as ABS was not available in the list of areas to post. I hope this was not a problem, please do move it if it is. 4. I am in the oil industry - of on a seismic survey vessel 6 weeks on 6 weeks off, so would like a light laptop, capable of playing the occasional game, DVD watching, wireless, lots of ram, vista etc is what i am after. So my questions were asked for a reason. I was very keen on the ASUS A8JS, but this is not available in the UK, and with Tax at 17.5 % is a bit more than I would like to spend. 5. My comment that ABS appears to be a good company is exactly that. I have never heard of them before I saw the news update page of this forum when it said 'thin light gaming notebook', so that opinion is based mainly on about 1 mins looking on their website using a 'search engine'. I again, have no affiliation to any search engine, so you may choose which you would like. I hope this clears things up, and if anyone does have any info on if the laptop will be coming to the Uk, I would still very much like to know. Thanks very much in advance. And I hope the above can now sleep at night.
