Well this is going to take some time getting use to but it's kind of cool.

CD back up of entire system-18 disks, start time 3:00PM, finish time 8:45PM

Recovery back up disk-10 Cd's or 2 DVD's. I had CD's, started @ 8:45PM, finished @ 11:30PM

I'm glad it only has to be done once.

I did not have any DVD's (if U could use them, I'm still trying to figure this system out) for the back up so that's why I had to use a lot of CD's.

Just letting some of U know who maybe thinking about Vista.

P.S. the Lap-top is working well w/the dual-core processor (recommended along w/a min of 1gig ram) & some of the features R nice.

P.S.S. I purchased a Targue Chill Pad from wal-mart, it has two fans & your lap top sit's on top of it to help keep the LT cool, for 24 bucks it's worth it & it plugs into your usb port. After9 hours of operation the bottom of the Lt is cool to the touch. I recomend this if U have a LT.

I would take this battery eating, resource taker back to wallmarlt and get this which is what I have. :tdown: :gossip:
Lapinator works great. :rolleyes:
LAPINATOR!

Get the Plus and you'll have room for a mouse and it fits across the lap better. You can get them on ebay for a few dollars less.

With regards to Vista. :lol: I have 2 free upgrades sitting in the shelf to be sold. I'm still using XP Pro with the classic menus.

Your HP with dual core Lap is very sweet. :lol: :lol:

I'm not sure about that Lapinator, just a basic heat sinc. The one I have has two fans in it & it stay's very cool. Most of the time the LT is plugged in so the Chil Pad really doesn't hurt the battery.

Jim,

I can see now the use for this especially if you had the laptop on a desk and it was hours of crunching as well as being your main computer where you can plug other things to it. :cry1:

For me personally it's a bit overwhelming for when I'm in bed or on the couch to have it plugged in. I've been using the Lapinator over a year, the laptop and my legs (among other things) remain cool when I'm using it in these situations. :scratch:

I can understand you wanting this since you are a heavy power computer user using the new Vista that hogs half your installed ram. :cool:
