Have fun,

I recently got a replacement battery for my 1.25GHz Al, after my old one decided to go mad and report a capacity of 2.8Ahr (even after recalibration). They didn't want to replace it at first when it...

No, ATI don't make graphics cards that use shared memory. It's a mistake in the advertising... It's probably a 7500 Mobility (M7) or a M6 in there.

The best drive for performance would be the 60GB 7200RPM IBM/Hitachi 7K60 hdd. However, I settled for an 80GB 4200 RPM drive which is exceptionally quiet and fast (due to the extremely high density)....

Actually, vlc does let you play any region DVD, regardless of what the drive is set to. This is because, iirc, the region system works by only supplying to key to decrypt the CSS content if the codes...

I run mine every night at 100% CPU usage every night :) I turn the screen down though, so that nothing bad happens to the backlight.
