Yay, yay, yay, yay and yay!
My little baby arrived today while I was at work (house mate received it for me).
And all I can say is YAY! Ordered on the 30th, so just short of three full weeks later(scroll down for dates),
I'm now sitting here with my new shiny machine of awesomeness ready to install windows
and about 20 other applications I use! Fairly certain this is going to take me most of the night, haha!
edit: I can't seem to upload pictures, all I'm getting is "upload failed", sorry.
Installed windows 7 ultimate 64 and it's running flawlessly! Also installed Windows 8 on another partition,
however after installing the Intel beta drivers for my GT 630m(1gb) windows got all borked, so had to
fall back to the windows default driver for my gfx. Also tried the install the GeForce drivers for Windows 8, but I wasn't able to install
them at all (can't remember the error message now, incompatible hardware?).
Fn+F10 Turns the webcam off. Was scratching my head for 10min wondering why it wasn't working!
To install the GeForce drivers for GT 630m (1GB), you have to install the Intel drivers first(both on drivers CD).
There's loads more, but I haven't had time to play with it enough (posting from it now though!).
One thing that confused me is how my gfx can score 5.1 on WEI on "desktop performance for windows aero",
and get 6.7 on "3D business and gaming graphics performance".
Stuff that's hard to tell before it arrived:
Left: Power, VGA, HDMI, SATA, Card reader, 2x USB, Lan
Right: DVD, 1xUSB, Microphone, Speaker
Thank you Team PcSpecialist!
