    Back in action (New Laptop)

    Hey All,

    I just wanted to update you and let you know I did get a new computer. I went to Best Buy the other day and they had a lot of open box computers. I found a Samsung Series 3 with an AMD A6-4400M CPU with Radeon 7520G GPU, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 8 64-bit, etc. for $264.99 - then they took off an extra 10% at the register. The normal cost for this computer was $429.99. It works wonders =D can't wait to try Ubuntu on it.

    Anyone else get a good deal like that?

    Thanks,



    Slook
    Where's [slooksterpsv] been? - I had Catastrophic partition alignment failure. I lost 90%+ of my data, and just now got it back fixed and working.

    OMG Awesome. they never reduced price even 30%. no they would dissapear from the menu rather then offer any price reductions. i htink the most i saw was 10% or so on first price.
