    Awesome. I've been known to order from Domino's online when cash strapped and starved with my credit card.


    Works perfectly for that.

    i use it instead of my desktop winxp computer. i usually just surf OT or do class work on it. it's my itunes jukebox when i clean my rooms. i use google earth to show my girlfriend exact directions, because she sucks at reading maps
    it's nice to have something in between my class breaks that allows me to watch episodes of house, sienfeld, stuff i tivo-ed, misc downloaded xvids etc
    i also use it to vnc into my server to clean things up. it's nice to be able to lay down on my bed and access one of the 3 computers in my house to check up on if it needs maintainence etc (my dad loves to download spyware)
    i've yet to use my superdrive to burn a dvd, but i have been messing around with idvd and toast for a little bit and i think i'm going to make a dvd of "the wizard" great movie

    I use it for everything. Photo editing, video editing, programming (increasingly more and more), music, movies, TV shows, P2P, games, you name it.

    Totally replaces my desktop for everything but file storage.
