    WOOOOOOOOOT-OFF!!!!!

    Yellow flashing lights, yellow bar sliding across the screen.

    No joke. Right now.

    Go break your F5 key.

    I seriously considered nabbing one of those computers until I saw it came loaded with Vista.

    And the basic edition, to boot.

    Could put Ubuntu on it, I guess.

    Vista apparently isn't bad if you have at least 3GB. That one only had 2GB. No go.

    I am, however, playing the wootoff theme on constant repeat....as always.

    Has anyone ever used Swoopo? If so, how was it?

    Shit, I'd be willing to give it a try for a $45 Wii with Wii Sports, which is what just got sold.

    Man, have they moved through some product so far.

    Either they have an assload of those netbooks or nobody wants them.

    The hand-crank flashlights went quickly.

    Looks pretty freaking sweet. So I guess you have to buy the right to bid. Looks like 60 cents per bid. Still probably worth it considering the kind of deals you're getting, I guess.

    Crappy battery? It's a rebuilt, refurbished Acer.
    This one, I think, comes loaded with Prodigy.

    That is insane.

    You lose .60 essentially every time a person outbids you?

    I am watching 11 people go after an external hardrive. Sure, you get a deal, but you waste $30 just getting the chance to buy it.
