Default Someone hit me with a hammer...

Just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.

Dammit! Goofing on the 'net I ran across this site... http://www.avadirect.com/

I can get exactly what I have been wanting without all the other bullshit tacked on. Anyone here familiar with this business? Here is what I put in the cart... http://www.avadirect.com/shopping_cart.asp This would make a killer laptop to last many years to come don't you think? If I pull the trigger on it I will put the Toshiba on ebay...no sense in keeping it around with that beast in hand.

The specific product is in the second link WD.

The Sager and others have less options and come in at least $200 higher in similar configuration.

Looks nice Rick, did you go with the 670 or the 675 ? couldn't tell. I am not sure where MSI stands as far as quality and reliability go, it is a good price for what you are getting though.

As you stated a few hundred below the rest of the pack, personally I think some research into how they are saving the money would be wise
