Catastrophe averted.
Icing on the cake is that the Lenovo arrived today. Guess what? Broken wire on the wireless card and no OS is installed. They want 2 weeks to fix it. I'm living a nightmare. sad-smiley-002.gif

OMG!!! You are sooo unlucky (and awesomely (is this a word?) patient)...

Just got an advice: get refund from Lenovo and buy something in a shop near you (which you can test within ffew hours of the transaction instead of days/weeks.

Keep us informed biggrin.gif (I like to not like Dell hihi...redface.gif)

Yeah, it sucks. I tried to work with Lenovo and got tossed around 5 different times. Two hours were wasted. I'm waiting for the transaction to post on my account so I can issue a chargeback.

Tomorrow I'm going to BestBuy (I'm that desperate) to get a computer. I swear to all things holy, if that computer breaks within the first week, I'll go postal. BestBuy is the only "computer" store nearby. There is Walmart and a few other things. I live near here, so if any of you can see what deals are worthwhile in stores near there, I will go look them up. Max budget is $550 before tax. I'll be sticking with the standard 1-year warranty. More than likely by then, she'll have money saved up from a job, so I can build her a small desktop and she can use a tablet at school.

Thanks for everything guys!

Can't help much for now I'm at work in my small 20min break (got to back now wink.gif), but I saw you have a Radioshack in your mall. I browsed the website and narrowed down to this laptop : Toshiba Satellite. Toshiba usually makes great laptop (like ASUS, I'm a bit biaised biggrin.gif).
