    hopefully it works

      My friend’s custom "Business Class" Beema 6410 w/Win7 Pro64 notebook seems nice & meets his specific requirements at low co$t without the crappy consumer feel and mass market (Walmart/Best Buy) marketing compromises. Although the "custom" machine was projected to arrive in 7 to 10 Business days; it only took 5 for the notebook - 2days after the Win8.1 Pro64 DVD. That's pretty snappy service for rural Nebraska! I wish them well. It's nice to have choices. ;-)
