Well the bad news is that the shop is waiting for the UK k/b which they said would be there by the end of this week and then send the laptop. Which means it most probably will not be here till Monday earliest
...damn!! And Monday is a holiday here in Belgium so.....say better Tuesday Wednsday.....
By the way I am Greek but live in Belgium, payed by VISA with the German VAT included, had to email them with pics of my passport and V card. Emailed then to send me a proper invoice with my VAT number and my data on it ...so I can reclaim the VAT in Greece (register it as an asset for professional use etc.).
There was word in a german forum www.discountfan.de
specialising with discount bargains and such (aldi, lidl, medion..) from a guy who saw the screen in media market next to a sony x-brite and said it was on par!! (ok, more or less minus the hi-res) also check out the new Gateway7405GX pics on the gateway pics forum, its the same arima barebone with the new glossy screen which they call Ultrabrite...you can see pics of a new machine there...but alas..only from the bios and a bit low quality.....just a teaser...
Now something for the DVD drive TOS SD-R6372 ..I read that its very picky when it comes to media...writes only Ricoh or Verbatim (for DVD+R)...and there is a .pdf on Targa service site specifing which media should be used but we all know how brands use all kind of manufacturers under the same name....anybody who can shed some light into this? Which media gives good results?
Anybody knows what has happened to Anacardo????
Keep us posted on your experience if you can man (Anacardo), did you get back a new machine? screen? resolution?
Seagate has a new HD 100MB 7k2 out by the way....a nice future upgrade imo (EDIT: well, forget about that seems like there is just a misprint on the reatail box..if you can believe that!!! Its a 5400 drive but they labeled the box with 7200....someone in Seagate is going to loose his job
) Read all about it on the Gateway forum
