I like the Thinkpad you linked.

I guess most of my experiences were with HP Mini's and they just plain suck.

Well, has anyone had experience with Newegg laptop refurbs? I'm thinking over the pros and cons. I definitely need it to last a year. Newegg also requires internet for RMA, which can be hard with a computer issue. Really don't want to go with a local place, I know big retailers don't give deals like these, so I'm definitely looking the option for best reliability for price. But getting a full laptop at about the same price would be a steal.

Noticed the Thinkpad was XP and 60GB, wow. That made the Eee a definite steal, so I picked it up. Should be here Saturday with any luck. Hopefully 7 Starter isn't too awful. I'll probably have to pick up extra RAM down the road, but it looks good otherwise and I'm excited to have an actual portable device.

Sorry for the double. But I seem to back into my old topic-killing streak, trying to keep the forums active to kind of the wrong effect. :P

New symptom, which I can't easily find from online. I've seen bits on clocks losing maybe 5 minutes a day, but I just corrected the clock this morning, and I've lost 20 minutes in under 12 hours. I've found that going into Standby never gets it to boot back into Windows (physically starts but just a black screen), so I've been shutting it down always. I had the battery in it the whole 12 hours, never booted it successfully until awhile ago. I think this would be the mobo battery? Or what?

Hello..
I think, It is a overheating problem reversed. Meaning when it cools down, the board curves and GPU looses its contacts points. Sorry for the bad news.
