thats great, i wish i had that much, im lucky to have this much. im po folk. the funny thing is, this one im on now ( toshiba 7020ct) was actually 4000.00 new. but if you look it up, youll see its actually kinda nice for what it is. slimline with dvd docking station. not too shabby.
ok i think i just found my deal. it turns out that my girl can use a student discount from hp AND i get the %10 discount from the survey, then add the 30 mail in rebate, im getting a sick ass deal for $1,103.18, down from $1,304.00! i think im done looking because i dont think anyone can beat that! i dont know anything about the 128 meg video card, so i guess i better check into it more.

because i went throught the absolute torture of thier tech support, they sent me a survey to rate the service. of course, it was bad marks all across the board, but after they sent me a cupon for %10 off anything over 50.00! even tho im not ordering till next week, i tested it in checkout and it all works! it almost makes up for the sucky fact that i have to now wait for another 3 stinkin weeks to use it! well, now itll be worth the wait, unless lightning strikes twice and i get burned again.
thats a good deal for the r3000. The uniwill that is in my sig (that programmer was talking about) is ok, a bit steep with the $1400 tag, but it is still a sweet deal. The only known problem with it (actualy the AW A51m and ABS Mayhem G1 and G3...all with P4 or P4ee, not amd64) is OVERHEATING but it is reported to come from the HD (7k60) even though that same hd works fine on most other machines. The computer from Mwave you put it is a good one. Of course, the nvidia is a step behind the M11 ATI, but it will step all over the 440go found in the Compaq r3000z systems.
Whatever you do, don't forget to smash some bananas for good no dead pixel luck.
