Fry's Pt III

So I went in to fry's, they actually produced a laptop as a loaner for the 6-8 weeks it will take to repair or replace my laptop.

What I had. . .

Compaq Presario 2103US
Athlon XP Mobile 2800+
768MB RAM
30GB HD Space
DVD/CD-RW

pulled my 512MB SODIMM from the machine before I turned it in. . .

what I recieved.

HP Pavillion XE2153US
Athlon Semperon 3000+ (64Bit Woot!)
512MB of Ram
60 GB HD
DVD-R/RW / CD-R/RW

I wish they'd just let me have this one, as it's just a BIT nicer than my old machine. . .

but they did say it was ok to wipe the drive and install whatever on it, as long as they were able to restore to the factory install they would be happy.

open license - woot!!!

Oh, and is that a normal loaner? I would try to run some data recovery software on it and see what you could find. :)
