    hmm, the accidental damage insurance isn't quite what I thought :think:
    just be aware that as for international traveller warranty, it can be tricky to be international warranty.

    i'm not goin for the accidental cover plan, i'm gonna go for the one linked second (if i do get an acer lol)

    the international traveller thing applies to me i guess :D but unfortunately i seriously doubt i will be taking my laptop abroard during the first year <--- so thats not too much of an issue

    EDIT: btw forogt to mention, dell laptops say they have a 'pay nothing until march 2010' for laptops over £250 but when i had a live chat with one of the assistants yesterday i was told its only for XPS laptops. i'm gonna try again and see wat happens lol

    double EDIT: dells service sucks.... i just hate them. they do not provide enough information and they eave halfway throught the chat and they didnt even answer my question
    ps. from what they told me their pay nothing until 2010 plan sucks

    Well...on my previous T43, you can use the fingerprint along side with the traditional login method.

    And imagine if the fingerprint failed and you can't login to Windows anymore...

    Finally I disabled it completely.

    erm plays HD content. like if i download legitely *cough* HD content. will it play with HD quality?

    that sorta of stuff, if i'm not making sense then i probs dnt knw the difference and it'll be safe enough to ignore me lol

    if its about HD quality ,it would depends on your source.

    As for HD screen, its about the ratio, 16:9, which would play HD movie without the black bar on top and bottom, which notebook nowadays come with this kind of screen =.=''

    unless you are thinking about the resolution? HD ready woud be 1366x768 and Full HD would be 1920x1080, which studio 15 optionally can upgrade to.

    thanks that clears things up. i was thinking about both the screen and resoltuion

    btw does radeon HD3200 support full HD playback through the HDMI port?

    remember that new acer i showed ya a couple of pages back?
    Acer 5536-643G QL64 Laptops - Review cheap Acer Laptop deals -

    just waiting for confirmation on whether it actually has wireless or not lol (i will most likely choose this one over compaq since it's warranty etension is cheaper :D)

    even intel gma 4500mhd supports HD playback :mrgreen:

    wireless should be standard nowadays.
    bluetooth is the optional.

    you might also wanna note that the manufacturer's warranty extensions do not cover refurbished/used products
