he had to get a new career because his started dating a hot woman who was allergic to peanuts... can't say that I blame him... I once became a vegan for 5 years because I was dating a nurse... she couldn't be with a meat eater and I was nuts about her. Smilie (so I pretended to be vegan... but secretly I drive to Taco Bell or burger places to satisfy my meat cravings)

That's like the old 1969 Britcom DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE when the young doctors visit a vegatarian weight loss clinic to learn about better nutrition and then at night see the big boss director of it in a local pub eating a thick steak.

I had one of those once. Kept trying to butter me up.

This was $50 cheaper 2 weeks ago, so there's some price elasticity there. I'm waiting for BF.

And the endless crapping on TN screens is pretty much unwarranted. TN doesn't have as vibrant colors as TN and has a wider viewing angle, but the TN panel has faster response time and you're most likely to be looking at a laptop screen head on. In fact, it might be a plus to have TN if you're on a plane or train using it, as the person sitting next to you won't have a very good look at the screen.

And most people have been using TN screens for years without a problem.

Asking for an i5 with an SSD and an IPS panel for <400, especially the 349 it was 2 weeks ago, isn't likely to happen that often.
