    $800.

    Needs a little work. Battery, brakes, oil change, couple scuffs that should buff out... All in all great bike for what I'm paying. (Blue Book in excellent condition is $2000)

    Are you trying to chase @ruantec, Phil? Come to think of it, I'm on my third PS3 (60GB, 60GB and now 80GB with 250GB HDD), with three 360s in the past as well. But never had more than one at once. Why not get Vita instead of 5th PS3?

    I guess you liked it more then you expected you would?

    This is the second 3D PC in our house now.
    Yes, but the old owner rarely used it.

    Only things on it were a few Word Documents. Not one song/video/photo/movie/3D Movie/game/3DVision capable game to be found.

    In fact, it was such a bare Windows install that not even a single driver was installed yet.

    Simply means he or she quickly reinstalled the OS. All OEM laptops come with drivers installed.

    Ok I will! Thanks for the tip....uh I have no idea what that word means...XD

    There is a very surprising but an EXTREMELY welcome feature I have just got around to discovering on this laptop...

    Every review or site I see online with this EXACT model laptop have said there is no glasses transceiver in the laptop for the 3D glasses meaning you need one of these to use 3D with the laptop...
    [​IMG]
    ^^The transceiver for the glasses (It keeps the glasses working in sync with the frame-rate on screen)

    I have one of these for my desktop PC as the screen doesn't have the 3D glasses transceiver built in to my screen.

    However despite every picture I have seen for the laptop and read in every review about the thing it actually DOES have the glasses transceiver built into the frame next to the web-cam.

    I am extremely happy I don't have the inconvenience of carrying around the transceiver (and it taking up a valuable USB port) because everywhere I go its right there built right in...
    [​IMG]
    ^^My Laptops transceiver is built in

    1 MAJOR downside to it is that on battery alone it goes from 100% charge to dead in 1 hour. Its quite the power hungry little beast.

    Yeah, quite convenient for me, but I know it can't be THAT old as there is not 1 scratch/mark anywhere to be seen on the thing.

    The screen is SPOTLESS

    A HUGE majority of people don't realize how good PC's do 3D until they see it with there own eyes.
    Games that look beautiful in 1080p look INSANE in 3D.

    Your eyes get 1080p 60fps EACH and I could swear that because your brain "merges" the 2 1080p images together it feels like the res has jumped to 2160p.
    Show Spoiler
    I have never used a screen higher then 1200p to judge that fairly though

    Dirt3 and Crysis 2 provide this affect particularly well.

    Glenn have you ever considered being a 3D salesmen? I have to admit you'd be pretty good at it. Or even work on a 3D dev team or something :p.

    I have certainly learned enough about 3D tech in the past 6 months or so that I would never be talking out of my anus.

    1 person who tried my PC did go out and buy a 3D TV because of the experience on my desktop PC's 3D abilities.

    Actually, I was going to do a review on PC 3D tech in the hardware review section a while back, but I decided against it due to the fact my passion in the review would be seen as total "biased" attitude.

    But honestly, I do love it a LOT and would absolutely hate to be forced away from using them.
