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
