 I guess the more you managed to have lucked out and pre-order, the less scary the wave feels.
 

Yeah I have the whole wave secured already so not worried at all outside of Silver Mario. Only one that gave me trouble was Ness, but a friend preordered one for me and is letting me have it for $20.

Was there not a Win 7 serial key sticker on the bottom of the laptop? Most laptops sold with Windows have one near the battery.

Worn off, honestly didn't think of saving the key either. Anyways it's now an ubuntu laptop.

I was gonna jump to 10 tech preview eventually, happened to have 8.1 on a flash drive from a restore I had to do on a laptop I sold. 7 feels outdated to me now that I am used to 10. Plus I have no keys for 7 copy installed was non genuine, where as I have several for 8.

Got an update for you guys. My $15 laptop from last week works perfectly. Only problem with it really is that the battery is dead. Got a replacement coming in for it. Installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu on it as it was a tad too weak for my liking on Windows 8.1. Besides that the hinge is a little messed up and the case has some damage. Makes a good spare laptop for the price that's for sure, especially after I sold off my other ones since I've become mainly a desktop only guy.

Well I had another good money making day out at the thrifts. Not a ton gaming related again but I am gonna be adding some money to my pockets once again when all is said and done.

At the first stop of the day I came across these three items, a Logitech Driving Force Pro Steering Wheel with the Pedals for the PS2, the Magnavox CDB-262 CD Player and a Protron DVD Recorder.

 

The Magnavox CD Player was purchased to flip, checked to make sure it worked and the last ones sold on ebay sold for $69 and $74 respectively and I bought mine for $4.99. Same story for the DVD recorder, I should be able to sell it for around $50 and I paid $9.99.

 

I have been after a steering wheel setup for my PC for the longest time and have been unable to find anything up until today when I came across this. I was unsure if it would work on my PC or not when I was at the thrift but when I saw the USB cable I figured I'd take a shot and sure enough it works great. Absolutely amazing how much of a difference a steering wheel setup can make for PC Racing games. Best of all the wheel was only $9.99. Here I am playing my new favorite game Dirt: Rally.

Finally, on my second stop of the day I came across this HP G60 laptop, I have no idea if it works but at $14.96 I figured I can take a shot, the screen does not looked to be cracked but the battery has no charge and I have to wait for a charger to come in from ebay before I can fully test it. I am prolly going to keep it for now as I recently sold off my laptop and tablet as I was going to go desktop only but for that price if it works it will make a decent laptop for here and there usage.
