I just nabbed an AWESOME laptop (P-6860 FX)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello, OCN! I haven't been on in a few weeks, what with being back home and all. My job, commute and all, lasts 12 hours a day, and I'm beat when I get home.

Anyway, I just thought I'd brag about my new laptop, the P-6860 FX from Gateway.

T5450 1.83 GHz C2D
4GB RAM
320GB Hard drive
17" screen
8800M GTS graphics

I can't wait to get some games going on this! I have a LAN going this Friday, and I plan on going to Quakecon in the end of July. This will be awesome, I'll give you guys updates as they come.

Right now, I'm trying to get Ubuntu running right on it, and it's almost perfect: The vido driver is the ONLY thing I'm having trouble with. Media keys, wireless, audio all worked without configuration! So if you have any experience with 8800M graphics on Linux, give me a shout. I might have to compile the open driver from nvidia.com.

Feel free to praise me for my greatness. BTW, anyone want a computer? No need for two high performance machines.

Mind if I ask how much it cost, roughly?

I paid $1300 + tax (roughly 120) + 3 year accident coverage/battery warranty (350) = $1786.10 total.

A lot, I know, but DAMN what a nice computer. I never thought even a year ago that I would be buying a laptop, considering how frugal and performance -oriented I am. But now, I know how great a laptop can be. And for this relative bargain (comparing to other laptops of similar specs), this is a great lanbox.
