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

2048/0 is the recommendation

WiFi Keep Alive and Vegan Tab Slow Down?
All;

So I don't know if this is linked or not, but I had been running Beta 3 of VEGAn for a number of days last week (since Monday 12/13) with no slowdown problems at all. This means when I'd wake up my tablet everything seemed to be running normally.

I had been following the discussion on the WiFi Keep Alive work around, but had not tried it. Then on Thursday night (12/16) I decided to give it a shot and installed the WiFi Keep alive app, selected options 3 and 4 (as described here), and went on my merry way.

It's at this point that I think I started to see the slow down after the device sleeps problem. So this morning, I removed the WiFi Keep Alive app, and restarted my device. I generally get about a 2225 Quadrant Score, so I ran that and tested, and got around the same number. All seems normal so far.

I left the GTab unplugged and went off to do some additional stuff for the day. I just got back and fired up my GTab. Ran Quadrant and I'm getting in the 2225 range now. This is after about 3-4 hours away from the device.

I don't know if this helps anyone but seems suspicious so I thought I'd report it. I'll keep an eye on things and let you know.

Again, thanks for all the work everyone is doing. I'm just trying to help out.

Jon
