    My friend bought a 1:144 Strike Freedom HG, we spent 3 hours assembling it. Looks very nice, I probably want to get a 1:100 version :)

    yeah, im not worried about price

    I'm worried how my PC will react if i add another expansion card (hence why the audigy is not in now). I will investigate and let you know by friday if i have bought it or not

    Noob/Moron question...
    Is that card only for headphones??? it has a headphone amp, can that kill speakers?

    Bo$$ says thanks.

    We took our time, and this is the first time in almost a decade since I last assemble a Gundam model. I probably need to improve my working speed soon. Any models which you might recommend for me to get?

    just to check netbooks are powerful enough to do most tasks arn't they - i can still watch youtube and iplayer as well as my movies on itunes and some old games (like CnC generals and the older sim city games) (atom n450)

    Never tried iPlayer, but if it can do Youtube I would think it works on iPlayer too

    Yes, you can do music and typing at the same time. I was using Win XP on that, so Win 7 might not be able to handle everything I said before.

    i might consider a netbook then as i can find one with a 10 hours battery life for £115

    1 thing though, can you upgrade the ram to 2gb on these things

    i will consider buying it shortly however i have just found the original 60's batman tv shows on itv 4 hd so i will be watching that for now

    Yes, upgrade to 2gb is possible. Netbooks are not that bad!

    lol
    nothing at all!
    some mobos will allow if you can find the pll chip,but she would barely let me take it apart to put the 2gb stick in,let alone have it to pieces for fractions of a gig increase!
    in honesty one of the amd fusion netbooks would be choice,the graphics power even with 2gb is pretty crap.

    no worries mate,if i wanted a netbook i would go sign up for an mobile internet deal where they throw a netbook/lappy in.
    that one you linked is the same as the mrs one,except she got xp so it is a little lighter on the cpu,and your link is already out of stock!
    whats the top of your budget?

    its not for me, someone i know is trying to build a desktop pc using an old 4200+ from my rig, it'll be around £150 for the DVD+HD+Windows that they need so i think it'll be better if they spend the money on a netbook as they've already got a few desktops ranging from currrent tech down to pentium 4
