You got a TV tuner too MOS? I picked up an ATi (wouldn't recommend really) from a friend cheap. I'd love a leadtek. Lemme guess that'* what the hard drive space is for too!

See, it has all those top of the line parts, but would you really need that in a laptop?? That is simply a gaming machine, and should be used in a desktop form. Plus, a desktop with that stuff built would be a lot cheaper.

Their desktops run @ 3.8 Ghz!!!! They are the best x86 hardware you can buy i've ever seen. Their laptops aren't meant for gaming, but for a nice mobile workstation. These machines are for companies who need sick power for their video editing, etc.

MOS95B, Nice setup you have there. I run BelArc Advisor on both of my systems. Very nice program. Are you and BonneMeMN members of the Dell Community Forum since we are all Dell owners?

Thanks. And no, I didn't even know Dell had a forum. I got mine used, so I didn't get all the paperwork. Good thing I'm a tech, huh?

My name is jmzais there. I haven't been there too much in recent months, but when i got my D600 i was all over everythign there. Supposedly someone has a bios that unlocks HyperThreading on the 8200... Dell pulled it off the site after a day cause they realized they only wanted the 8250 to support it. SO if you ever find a cheap 3.06 somewhere....
