New Computer

I pulled the trigger on a new computer. What I got was the Dell Inspiron 1525 I had mentioned previously. I got a recertified model, saving some money, and used a special promotional coupon, saving some more. With taxes (huh? Dell is in Texas!) and a California recycling fee, and counting shipping, I’m paying $571.74.

What that bought is:

  • Core 2 Duo at 2 GHz
  • 4 GB RAM
  • 320 GB 5400 rpm hard disc
  • DVD-RW/+RW (8X)
  • Intel Wireless-N
  • etc. (Firewire, 4 USB 2.0 ports, etc.)

Also a copy of Vista Home Premium, but of course I’ll wipe that as soon as I’ve run some certification tests and maybe a benchmark or two.
