Because my laptop wasn't new to begin with (they turned out to be display models), I, and two others in our company, set wheels in motion to have this corrected.

The shop our company got the laptops from will soon be contacting us directly, and will be swapping out our laptops with newer models! 

Old laptop:

Probable new laptop:

There is about 18 months technology difference between the two, the improvement include:

-Better videocard, going from a Mobile Radeon to a Geforce FX 5200 Go.. oke so its not spectacular, but its got 64mb dedicated now.. big improvement

-1mb cache on the P4 3Ghz cpu, up from 512kb

-Infrared (I really missed that one)

-17" XVGA monitor with higher resolution (max 1440 x 900), as apposed to 15" I had.

-"Fullsize" keyboard! Yah!

-Far more software included!

-Multi-Format DVD R/RW..  DVD- AND DVD+ ..   COOL!


If they actually deliver.. I will be rather pleased!
