i think i need a BIOS update for that though. or some coldness...suspecting my NB is overheating.

i know what you mean. it was 13f when i got up and went out. as i was walking to my bus stop to go to school my hair froze cause it's always a tad damp after i get out of the shower. that was a record low in my area for this time of the winter.
