ASUS Z71V

Is there anywhere that consistantly has the Z71V in stock for a reasonable price? This place is where I was suggested to go, but they will only get one in stock and that will go pretty quick.

Are you looking for Pentium 4 or Pentium M? From what I know, if you go for a 4, you're pretty much looking at desktop replacements, and personally, I don't think those things count as laptops. :rolleyes:

I checked it out and from what I can tell it's a regular 2.5" IDE Drive. So, as long as I can figure out how to open it up, I should be able to put it in the new laptop.

Nothing is stopping you from doing that as long as it fits. If it is an older drive then it might not have much cache and be a bit slow on the RPM side. I used a Toshiba Super Slimline MK8026GAX (HDD2191) 80GB 5400 RPM notebook drive. It features 16mb of cache, which is more than most notebooks and...

Wireless Adapter Question

I'm looking at mini pci wireless adapters right now and I came across this one:

MSI MP54G4

Anyone know anything about it? Does MSI generally make good wireless adapters? Would this fit in the ASUS Z71V?

Nate, Great presentation. I was wondering where you found the price for the ASUS whitebox you had listed in your presentation? I think I want to use the Pentium M I won (woo!) to build a laptop similar to that one, except with only 512 mb ram and just dvd-rom. My other thought would be to find a whi...
