Ordered this laptop a week or two ago because my old laptop that I bought in 2006 has a worn out battery so I might as well upgrade to something decent to sustain a mobile system. It was supposed to be shipped on the Dec 9th after being built from China and it arrived on the 10th. I actually watched this thing get overnighted from China. Apparently its not impossible to overnight stuff from Asia. Spent most of yesterday loading it with stuff. Now I’m heading up to LA for Autocon.
