    Fucking piece of shit, I'm going to Future Shop this week, they had some at good price there last time I was in... If they don't have them at a good price now, I'll just order one :mad: :mad:

    why not use it as a pera-cup holder.

    open the try, superglue it open, and use it as one. u know on ur fancy coffee table, or desk. u can get creative with it ;)

    If you prefer the sound of a jet engine spooling up in your room, go for a Lite On. If you want something quieter, get an LG...

    Edmonton. I would NEVER go to future shop except that when I was in there a month or so back they had a 52x24x52 for $58. If they don't have that on anymore then I'll get one from canadacomputers.com (Sony 52x24x52 for $62).

    They don't ship to Canada, and after exchange that's more than $62 Canadian anyway.

    :cool: Thanks, I'll have to check that out. I also gotta remember to check how fast my CD-ROM drive is (actually, it's a DVD-ROM), so I don't try to burn faster than it can read when I get my new one (I usually burn cd-to-cd) ;)

    Check the forums at http://www.redflagdeals.com that's probably one of the better sites for Canadian deals and freebies. also i was mistaken it was around $40 Cdn after rebate :big grin:
