Default Woohoo!!!

well the dirty deed has been done. i FINALLY bought a new laptop. screw my old toshiba, its gonna go out in style. lol


anyways, i just ordered a new laptop, its a gateway mt6729

Newegg.com - Gateway MT6729 NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T2330(1.60GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 2GB DDR2 667 160GB 5400rpm Dual layer DVD Burner Intel GMA X3100 - Retail

Well maybe your new laptop will bring you better luck. I am guessing you don't have a protection on your phone?

dedicated card laptops are a little out of my price range, plus how was I going to pass up a deal like that? come on 549 for 2gb 160gb dvd burner 15.4 with a dual core cpu, im happy with it. only going to be used for halo, browsing the web, taking notes, and downloading/playing music
