Is that a lappy with on board graphics?

Is there room inside for your card?

Also if it is a manufactured tower. Beware of certain companies building the case with them blocking any chance of upgrading due to putting metal in the way of card slots.

Compaq used to be terrible for doing it.

Quite a topic to be honest.

I pulled my phone over to see the time last night whilst attached to the charger.

Forgot about my brew and the wire clotheslined the mug over the side table.

Laptop was on the floor propped sideways by the table.

No longer turns on.

Hard drive is pulled out and still working.

Time to put in some extra hours. Going to get a chromebook since all i do is a few offuce document work and blog n browse the tinterwebz.

When I was a courier (Xlwb hiroof vans) my mate had a laptop, we never had family cars so when he had to take the kids to school one day the kids got in the front (cab, 3 seats) so he opened the sliding side door and put his laptop against the bulkhead, nice and safe, till he was doing 40mph and had to hit his brakes WHEN, the wooooshing noise reminded him he had some empty, loose pallets by the back door, now sliding forwards to the the bulkhead......and his precious laptop


he claimed on his household insurance for a dropped laptop, got a Sony vaio 19"
