Hi everyone, i'm jb. I had ben saving to buy a computer almost all last year and I bumped into cyberpower. I gotta say that this forum helped out to decide what to buy. So i wanna chip in with my experience.

I ordered it green, but then a guy mailed me and said that if i wanted it green i would have to wait at least a month for them to ship it. They should say that on the web page! So i changed it to the original color. I guess it's better: -100.
so the final price i pay is
Cyberpower is the best company to find the cheapest fastest amd powered notebook. I've heard about their customer service that sucks, and as far as I know, it does. But i'm taking the risk it's a great computer.
Problems so far:
The receipt page had errors, i could not see my receipt until i got it by mail.
I called and asked for a new receipt by mail, you know, after the -100 for the color. He sent me a mail, and i don't know what happend buy all i got was garbage, it had the receipt there, somewhere, but a lot of symbols and stuff around it. So I saw the price and it was ok.
On the 'order status' page is shows the original $1605 price, that was with the green paint. It should be $1510
I told the guy(the ssame guy all along. it seems that he's the customer service department) about the problems and he was not nice at all.
So anyways i'm paciently waiting for my laptop/notebook. I hope it arrives in one piece jeje. Ohh, one more thing, I ordered it without OS, i have WIN XP on CD, so. If anyone has any tips or tricks as for drivers and configurations that could be usefull for the installation i would really apreciate it.
