    Very good for the price.

    I paid about $1,000 more for mine and even got a 15' screen. it has some killer specs though :)

    Actually, there was a super deal at a local Circuit City, $935 total, tax included. This same machine was $1,200 every other place I looked. I plan on using it to replace my desktop, so the 17" screen was necessary.

    A fair-looking machine ;)
    I would prefer a macbook pro myself, since I'm pretty fed up with Windows.

    I was looking at MacBooks because of all the bad stuff Ive been hearing on Vista. Everything is running smooth so far but I did turn the theme back to the old windows classic 2000. I dont care for flashy graphics. Maybe it has something to do with the performance.

    Your laptop looks cool. It looks tough indeed. I wonder if the weight is tolerable enough. Also what do you have to say about the screen resolution? Are you satisfied with it?

    Using the classic or "Basic" Vista themes actually hurts performance. The reason is because the Aero interface actually uses the GPU to calculate and render everything on your screen. The "classic" and "Basic" themes go back to the rendering engine from Windows XP, 2000, ME, 9x that use the CPU to render those things.

    Anyway, the whole reason that Aero can have all these animated and translucent Windows is because it's run through the graphics accelerator. That's why a Direct X 9 compatible GPU is needed. Anyway, if you want to test the performance yourself in Vista, while in "Classic" open up "Task Manager", click on the "Performance" tab, and then drag around a Window repeatedly. For me, the CPU usage meter peaked at 71%. Now switch to "Aero" and repeat. In "Aero" the CPU usage meter peaked at 34%. Not exactly the most scientific test, but it illustrates that there is a very real performance gain that comes along with Vista's eye candy.

    Congrats but you should've bought a Core 2 Duo instead of a Core Duo processor machine.
