I loved my Vaio, it was one of the best desktops I ever had. It held up for a long time, and when I gave it up I bought a Gateway and it was a piece of Junk. I got rid of it in about two years and had my last one built from a local shop and I picked out all the parts. It has been great.
That is one smart cat, and she has good taste in equipment. I need a bigger monitor myself. What is really good is the wife pointed this out. So I told here that at Xmas I would be glad to accept one around 27-32". Now I just have to do a little checking them out to see what I like.
That is a good one. They never were quite that generous for testing their software, yet companies like Adobe, and Broderbund usually paid a flat One Hundred dollars for final beta test before release. I used to look forward to getting a call.
No thanks I used to get paid to beta test, the companies have gotten cheap over the years. Microsoft used to give away free Office full edition. They appreciated that you could screw up your unit with their buggy releases.
