After trying to watch some DVDs on the 30" monster, I had to break down and buy an HD-DVD drive for my computer.  I picked up the XBOX 360 drive and it works great under Windows XP or Vista.  HD-DVD looks much better at 1920x1080 that DVD's did at 720x480.  There really is no comparison.

I picked up a Samsung CLP-600N Color Laser printer that comes equipped with 10/100 network.  This was new in box, and was clearing out at $149.99.  Can't beat that when other stores list it for over $500!

I couldn't pass up a $599 Core 2 Duo laptop the other day to replace my Pentium-M laptop.  It's an Acer 5580, and it may not be perfect, but it's a huge step up from my old laptop.

Specs are 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo T5500 @ 667FSB, 2GB DDR2, 120GB HDD, DL DVDRW and Intel GMA950.  It comes loaded with Vista Home Premium and over 90 services running after initial setup.  It's cleaned up now. . .

I just bought myself a new mouse: Logitech G7 Laser Cordless Mouse. Pretty good, though the batteries drain pretty fast in my opinion; I always end up charging it after a day's use (I do not think that's going to be good for the lifetime of the batteries).

I won some gear from Cooler Master and can't wait to get it.
Real Power Pro 750W PSU + Hyper 212 Heat Sink
PWM Fan Hub Set (Fan Hub+ two 120mm PWM fans)

I'm anxious to see how the Hyper 212 runs. I haven't seen a review for it yet.

Wow, you're lucky Slugbug. That Hyper 212 must be a new model. You might be the first to own, and review it!  O0

Picked up this beauty to replace the BSOD one in the dead hardware thread.  It's a 2007 Pre-owned with 13Km.

I decided it was time to upgrade my old crt 19" monitor, great for simple use, but I wanted an lcd for my computer. So I went out and bought myself a nice new 22" widescreen samsung lcd. it was the 225ms model, it also has an hdmi input so I hooked my xbox 360 up to that and now its very pretty  :smitten:

Well with this new job that I'm doing now... went out and got a Sansa e260 mp3 player. So far looks good and easy to use. The price was right.. now to load it up!!!

Picked up an Altec Lansing M602 iPod dock for my newly acquired 30GB iPod video.  The dock was clearance for dirt cheap and I had some early Christmas money from the inlaws. . . it was a no brainer, and it sounds fantastic.
