    If you can convince him/her to ship it, that'd be quite a nice laptop for the money!

    Brand new that laptop is $2,499. (Out of stock though)

    Yeah, but it could easily be a scam, and you could be out $400.

    Yeah, I'm from Binghamton NY. I used to no people in Rochester, but most people I know have moved out of that area.

    I didn't know you were from here(I should read that stuff more often). Yeah it could be a scam. Rochester sucks...

    Don't blame you, man. You've avoided quite a few retarded political events.

    New laptops with similar specs cost about the same. I paid $350 for a laptop with the same specs, but a better graphics card at best buy about 3-4 months ago. It was a Sony Vaio that I got on clearance (still brand new).

    EDIT: Didn't notice blu-ray burner! My bad! Mine is just a DVD Burner and has a 15.4" Widescreen not 17". Definitely a good deal if its legit!

    Many reasons why you wouldn't want a sony laptop:

    1: Blue-ray output to tv through hdmi in unsupported, no tv playback
    2: Service pack 1 for vista doesn't work
    3: None of the function keys will work under windows XP.
    4: The updates from sony are almost 3 pages long
    5: I'm sure there are a few other reasons as wll

    Though if ya wanna blow your wad on a sony laptop still go for it

    I use vista, don't use the function keys, and own a ps3. I'd be ok. XD

    People are selling windows XP (apparently unused) for $50, some $75. Should I go for them?

    Edit: Sorry, that was kinda off-topic and spam-ish.

    intresting price, fuel costs to pick it up from where I live would probably be less than shipping lol

    I found an alienware a while back with the sli tech for 500, almost went for it

    Remember this is your thread, so I doubt any mod will yell at you for going off topic, and I probably wouldn't pay more than $50 for new XP considering I have seen copies of Vista for $75.

    I think they're home edition. I'm probably not going to get them while I have such a small (60gb IDE) HDD.

    I just feel a little uncomfortable writing "Really cool laptop" and lead into a bunch of random questions. =P
