    hey guys, i remember a year or two ago when you could buy a new computer and send the cd key back to the manufacturer or was it microsoft?.... and they would give you, say... $100 back.

    does anyone know who to contact about that?



    also, does anyone know how to get a truly custom laptop? i dont want it to come with a hard drive or ram or OS if possible.

    what i want is:

    15-17" screen
    i5 2410m
    8gb ddr3(have already)
    500gb seagate momentusXT(already have)

    and it would be cool if it had:
    keypad
    dual hard drive option
    decent gpu

    i like dells and hp's. lenovos are nice too but pricey.

    any thoughts?

    EDIT: price range is $450-650

    You looked at Clevo's?

    malibal.com

    xoticpc.com

    malibal's customer support is one of the best I have dealt with. If you call them they may be able to work something out with you.

    They have exactly the specs you are looking for, as far as shipping it without ram or hdd, you'll have to contact them.

    The more higher end MSI notebooks has i5-i7 with dual hard drive solution.
