    Love the Engrish on the website lol :

    The world's first Touchpad 90-degree flip design
    With a 90-degree flip a switch function key Touchpad, allows you to be more humane mode of operation to achieve click, scroll, and the mouse click action. Control and enjoy the funof the same notebook computer.

    You can teaching, training, lectures: keyboard, mouse, laser pointer in one hand and hand, three-dimensional explanation, amore lively!
    IPTV, Living Room Computers: lying on the sofa, the free manipulation of the living room computer, Internet, shopping, trade stocks and soon!
    Personalization: lying on a sofa or blanket to play computer games and the Internet is not cool? "Spiritual bond" is the personality of your choice!
    CARPC: car computer's wireless best solution!
    Gifts: Business gifts, interpersonal gifts the bestchoice!

    I have always wanted a keyboard i can be more humane with.. :D

    I really want one now, my HTPC needs one of these!!

    Well guys. tomorrow I'll do a big post on the remote. I'm loving it right now. I'm very happy to be able to get this keyboard and get it for my father.

    Drunken' you'll love that keyboard if you get it. Anyone will.


    Now, I do have some good stuff here with me right now. Going threw with Dark2099, I was able to snag a great Mobo for my dad's set up.

    Gigabyte P55m-UD4

    It's a sweet little board. There was one Asus board I was thinking of getting, but I love Gigabyte more then Asus now.. I guess it mostly has to do with service of the people... To me, Asus has went into the "Money Hungry" market of things.. If your Customer is screwed due to your bull, oh well.. But, not Gigabyte.

    So, pictures!

    wow there really hasn't been anything going on with there is there? But don"t worry.. there is something that came in today that will get this on the path of to be finished. the lovey case is here!!

    Silverstone GD05-B

    To me. I love this case. I really just all ways wanted one myself. So, why not get it for my dad?

    sorry for the blurry pictures.. My dog felt the need to try and "take pictures" while I had the camera on the tripod.. lol..

    Now, with it coming in, I've seen that the fans that came with it are good, but not so good for what he's going to have in it! So:

    Out with the New, in with the Old.. Yep.. I figured that I'd use the fans that I was going to put in the front of my MM case in here.. More air flow, with same Db's. What's not to love? Plus, I've grabbed two 80mm Silverstone fan's to add in the back. Now, let's get the Air Moving!


    More to come this weekend to next weekend.. Going to finish it up by the end of next week.

    You'd Think that they would give shorter cables in a case like this!

    I can just wonder the people that buy the case and just "throw" everything in!
