Can we please leave the sniping off the forums? I'm here to read about the VEGAn ROM.

We all paid for your "deal".

IF they're actually those, and they catch the mistake they'll just cancel his order for him... It's common practice.

[EDIT]
WOW! THAT WAS a $1700 nb?! (Says c. $950 now... but it's not even close in specs to my MSI GT725 which was c. $1350...)

Maybe you didn't understand my post correctly. I have the x200 tablets in my hands delivered since yesterday.

movieman123,

Please take this discussion somewhere else as this is the VEGAn ROM thread. I am sure that your discussion is just as interesting but it needs to move to somewhere else.

Thank you in advance!

If anyone here wants it and is local to nyc/nj then I can sell it to you at the price I paid. Also I will include the receipt dated 11/23 from sears B&M. You still have another 31 days to return or exchange for a new one. This was purchased from a regular sears PM to sears outlet price. I still have the box and everything that came with it. Thanks everyone for all your help and roms. Good luck and Merry christmas to all and a Happy New Year.

for those of us running the Vegan ROM - what is the conventional wisdom around the partition size? 2048/256 or 2048/0 ? I read that swap is not used - so it seems like doing 2048/0 will save you at least 256MB for the /sdcard partition.

I never changed mine from the standard stock setting (whatever that is) and have had no issues at all.

Hoping for a Vegan beta 4 for a Christmas present

I have always repartitioned at 2048/256 and have never had any problems.

2048/0 is the recommendation
