Re: a couple questions about a laptop
Yes 8X DVD/RW just states that it burns DVD's as well. Wireless generally just depends on how the main network is setup. My g/f wireless is setup to private so we had to make it public for me to connect to it and then set it back to private so no one else could connect to her connection. I also had to save the passphrase in a notebook file because I used to get booted for some reason, but I haven't had that problem in some time. I have a hp dv9000 series and it's a good laptop in my opinion. You're getting a good deal at $860 as well. I paid almost $1100 for mine on ebay and it came with a 1.7 or 1.8 dual core pentium, 1 gig of ram, and a 100 gig hard drive. I have vista on my laptop and I like it, but I don't tweak my laptop like I tweak my desktop. I cleaned up the startup process because it was killing my ram speed. These laptops come preloaded with so much bullcrap that it's ridiculous. The 17" monitor leaves nothing to desire either and the display looks really nice. I think you will like Vista a lot, but it's more user friendly than XP Pro. I didn't like it at first, but now I love it.
LMFAO "oh i thought i didn't need that" i bet in your head you were like "go kick your mom in the ass for me when you get home " 08mazda2.0
