    office enterprise 2010
    cs5 master collection with acrobat 10
    windows experience index of a 5.0 but that will change since i have not updated it when i installed the extra 4gb ram.

    Probook 4720s... replacement video card 2 weeks old. hooray for ATI you POS and thank you toshiba for the erroneous hard drive.

    i hope haji on the other end in HP tech support of the line understand that there are no hard feelings that hes doing a job an american should for 1/4 the cost and im treating him like shit [​IMG]

    the computer told me the hard drive was going bad. how plain as day is that? noooo you want to treat me like i dont know how to use a calculator, and you want to run a bunch of different tests and waste my time that is money, when your own fucking technology is telling me to call warranty repair - tied to my god damn 3 year warranty. and the LAPTOP KNOWS THIS SHIT! so fuck you and send me my replacement parts!

    I don't like HP my parents have been through 3 in the past couple years.. I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 best laptop I have ever seen. I even had my mom get one for my dad for christmas since his HP is crapping out he's a Electrical Engineer and does a lot of Auto Cad. I haven't had a problem and i've been using this thing for 6 months with no problems...

    Seagate is pretty popular. I've had a 320gb external from them for several years and no problems so far *knock on wood*

    damn that sucks, less than 1 month old. also, intel releasing sandy bridge this week, so that might sting a little.

    anyway, thank god most of the companies ive been dealing with are moving tech support back over here, except after 5pm calls... hopefully it pans out for you. maybe get a free upgrade or some shit since its been less than a month.

    ps seagate is the biggest hdd maker in the world. most of their stuff is solid but ive been getting WD as of late.
