I don't really have a device that can save that (I guess an imaging device is like a backup storage device in that, it has to save up to the same amount of data, only difference is, it re-insalls the OS and all the settings as well).

By the way, I knew what was causing my lag and problems. I just disabled most of the stuff on startup.

That potato watching tv is hella hilarious.
Glad you fixed it.

Imaging is no problem - just buy an external hard drive for it. I just bought a 500GB iOmega to handle that. I keep system backups (including an image) and all my VM's on there. With all that it's only half full. If this machine dies for some reason I can get it all back operational in a very short time that way.
