    If I have enough money for it, I aim to do a masters and go onto a PHD. The current plan anyway, everything may change. What is it you study/want to do? Can never remember how it works on your side of the pond.

    A massive pain. In Windows 7, use Windows Key + P to scroll through different monitor configurations. Massively convenient.
    Thanks niemiro and wrench! Very useful to know.

    @Wrench, judging by the symbols on my keyboard it's FN + F6 on my Alienware.

    Just looked at our family laptop. It has it on the F1 key, but has the actual F1 function on the FN button. However, it doesn't actually work without some piece of Dell software which I accidentally removed when cleaning all the OEM junk off it. lol.

    The price has gone down 10 already, so I've cancelled and re-ordered. Still out of stock though, hopefully it'll get dispatched soon.
