Today: http://www.shopaveratec.com/searchresults.aspx?search_id=3&dept_id=6&culture=en-US 2100 SERIES BATTERY - PRICE REDUCED! (blinka-blinka-blinka) $50.00
You all do know that I'm personally responsible for DVD recordable drives dropping from $100 to 50 , and for the fall in Flash Media drive prices, don't you?
You'll all be in for a treat if I spring for, say, the tablet-PC 1280x800 2GB ram / 200GB disk dual-core 3GHZ notebook that Costco is selling for $1500 ... I think they'll probably drop to $500!
...Sadly I'm about to bite the bullet and pay an extra for two DDR DIMMs (the "new hotness" RAM all the notebooks take is DDR2 which is $30-a-DIMM cheaper than "old and busted" DDR for the same price.)
Oh and for my own little tempest in a teapot bitching and complaining ... http://www.averatecforums.com/2100-series/7202-averatec-2150-hard-drive-died-no-recovery-media.html ... I know that screaming into the empty sky and stamping my feet doesn't have any chance of fixing anything ... but it makes me feel better!
