    But fear not! If you don't like me just contact UKBA and I will get kicked out. Alternatively, Tatty works.

    you could buy a secondhand car, take it to a chop shop and have them tune the engine, add all sorts of engine performance upgrades to it. pay for a years insurance and road tax and youd still have enough money for 6 months worth of gas so long as you forfit your pint of beer.

    rediculous price IMO but it is 70" so i dont know.....

    anyone who has space for a 70" at home probaby has a wallet so deep it probably has its own center of gravity with an alternative universe somewhere in there

    you could get one good projector for that amount of money though

    in fact you could convert a room to a small cinema for that amount of money!

    Depends whats the internals are. the M1710 is a old model (2007)

    Googling it brings prices around £500 for a refurbed unit....Not really worth it for something so old IMO

    the one im looking at has a C2D@2.1Ghz - an i3 or i5 would be a fair bit faster. and run a lot cooler

    If its around £200 - its a steal

    for £100 its not too bad at all. Id say get it. Its probably still good for a few games at low to medium settings.

    any chance of finding out what the specs are?
