If I ever have the time....

I have an old laptpo I wanna play with also - as well as trying to find some very specialized capacitors for a Sammy 22" ws monitor that went out on a friend - he has given it to me for now but if I can fix it for him and he does not want it back, I am going to keep a third monitor in my room, or else as a replacemetn monitor for a non wide screen monitor elsewhere (replced monitor going on the wall for watching movies in my room).
