hm... sounds good. im ready to give up on the one i have now (i have to
disable pci altogether or the disk hangs). i can get the 2400 since its in
the same price range. does yours have the supersavage? also, the 2400 has
secure digital. whats that for? and what about the network, modem and the
buttons on the front? are you able to suspend to save power?
also i had the worst time with my friends hp. the graphics wasnt supported
at all but i loaded it anyways. when i switched back to the console the
whole thing died!
