So Mick and Brad, Did you get in on the Discount Deal on the Battlefield Bad Company 2? If so, when are you going to get on and play? or did I miss ya'll last night?

That's a lot more detail on the specs than I know, but it looks the same. It's the ASUS something or other A-1. Pretty cool machine, but I don't like the touchpad mouse. I think I need to change the sensitivity on it or something... I LOVE the screen though! Hopefully, with a terrabite of memory I won't get that "out of disk space" freezing up that my old one kept giving me.

Bring your old computer to lunch tomorrow, as well as the old install operating system disks.

I don't like the touchpad mouse.
I think that the biggest complaint I've hear. It's said to have a stiff uni-pad button.
Did your laptop come with a free bag and gaming mouse?
Is lunch Tuesday or Wednesday?

Yes on all counts, and I think Ross accidentally said 'tomorrow' when he meant Wed.

Not only is it stiff, but it occasionally changes the font sizes of the windows I'm in, which is annoying. I haven't used the gaming mouse yet, since I'm used to using the touchpad.

If the touch pad becomes to irritating you can turn it off when you have a mouse attached.

And yes, I did mean Wednesday.
