    guys look this ok?...

    I am in miami, my grandma sent some money with us in the travel (she didnt came) but nobody knew what was it for, just a week ago my parents told me it was going to be for buying me a new computer,
    all this week I was looking for good computers, and I saw avery good GateWay of 1gb ram and 100gb HDD and was $690
    and a Dell, very nice one but was $830 without tax.
    then I saw this on BestBuy website
    Again...
    a week ago its price was 749.99
    incredibly went to 899.99 in two days
    in the next days the price was changing between 850 and 900
    but now today it turned to be 799
    which means 857 with taxes
    And we bought it
    BUT
    I cannot use it until new year (as far as I know, I hope I could use it for christmas)

    DAMN I CANT WAIT
    now I have 230 bucks
    which are my savings from almost the last 2 years

    what I should buy?
    I ask this cuz with this new pc obviously it needs new accesories and new sweet things... but its almost perfect cuz its gb of ram, its hard drive 120gb, its amd turion x2...
    tihs isnt a gift someone could get any day

    this is really important to me
    since its gonna be for first time a cool thing JUST FOR ME only me ME ot everyone else JUST ME I can do with it whatever I want ANYTHING no problems JUST MEEE

    hard drive is kinda slow in the rpm department and the screen is kinda small, but the price is decent. im not a fan of HP laptops though

    but thats what I wanted, an small pc
    I dont really care about the 5400rpm, its fine

    but nice things are:
    the lightscribe technology
    the remote for dvd and other things
    the hotkeys for music
    cd and dvd burning

    not a thing worth of thousands of dollars
    but enough to keep me happy

    u wont say that when your trying to multitask and the programs take longer to load. hard drive rpm is the different between a fast pc and a slow one

    I usually dont multitask...
    when am watching a dvd, am just watching the dvd
    when I am in Messenger, I just chat in messenger
    when am Surfing the net, am just surfing the net
    when am playing counter strike, battlefield, or just any other pc game, am just doin it.
    in the other pc I always use, my fathers pc, things run normally
    its from the time when xp was released (years ago) its ram doesnt even reach the 128, its hard drive its just 30gb, and it was almost perfect for me.
    no lags, no crashes, just what I needed.
    oh this new pc is gonna be niceeee

    usually my only multitasking are using photoshop, messenger, firefox and copying things to my psp.

    trust me you say that now...
    and be prepared to format your laptop as soon as you get it. HP comes with a shit load of crap ware that'll easily add 15 - 20 seconds on to your boot time and make your laptop experience very annoying when all the trials end.

    also i'm not saying you made a bad decision or anything but hp isn't the best, neither is amd x2.

    just fyi.

    but just format your laptop and you'll have a decent enough performer. enjoy your new laptop!

    im not trying to sound mean or knock what he wants, but ive had bad experences w/ HP comps, and my dell laptop is still running perfectly and ive had it for 5 yrs. and its on 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. the specs on mine are nothing spectacular, but its a awesome net comp. that video card the HP comes with simply wont be good for FPS games, it lacks the power to support a decent FR w/ a decent display. 800x600 w/ all the options on low isnt gaming to me, and its a waste. dont settle on the first comp u can afford, shop around. i gurantee youll find something better for equal or less money

    ask me man, my first laptop was a hp, and i wasn't impressed. i think the hype of getting your first laptop is impairing your judgment. look around for a bit u WILL find a better performer for the same or close to same price.
