No Wii?

not right now,  looking at (and using) sal's beatup ancient laptop , it became clear that a new PC was more pressing  Sad    (trust me, I want a wii badly!)

combined with the fact that my parents and her parents gave us basically a month to 5-6 weeks of grocery $  for my birthday,   and the fact I had a 25% code for dell,   and dell has 12 month no interest financing...    it was too hard not to do it.    that machine, knock on wood, should be good for 4-5 years, vista ready (when I finally give in to it) , etc...

see my last post.

considering just the processor, and RAM alone in it have a newegg price around $600, and we're getting the whole thing for $1200 (with 2y warranty and sales tax)...


trust me,  if I had the $,  i'd build a nicer, diy  rig

I'm typing on a Dell right now. I just couldn't resist the jab. The desktop in the office downstairs is a DIY, but hard to do with a laptop. Ain't nothin' wrong with a Dell, really. Particularly given the OEM alternatives. Buddies

Vista is awesome.  Pretty spendy, though, not to mention the 13GB of space it requires....

if you search this site forum, for microsuck and vista threads I started...   you'll see i'm a bit skeptical on the whole vista security.......

And I'm skeptical about anything M$. Wink Grin  I really haven't looked into the security in vista yet (because I know I won't be getting it anytime soon), but wouldn't it have to be a tad bit better than XP?
