This may not be a popular suggestion; however, the only method that I have ever found to be 100% accurate, other than opening the machine up an inspecting it, is to query the manufacturer. Dell is pretty good about this, as is HP. I am not too sure about others. Of course, if you have added/changed HW after obtaining the machine, you would have to factor that into any information obtained from the manufacturer. -- Jerry ges...@yahoo.com OCEAN: A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man -- who has no gills.
