Yea.. haven't heard back from anyone here in over a year.. I'll let it slide,. word has it that there is life outside of nforums.
I got a new 'puter:
Q6600 (nice Quad) 2.40Ghz with 2GB RAM and 250GB SATA2 16MB Buffer HD.
took me 3 days to recover all my data from my old hd that decided to die prematurely (it lasted 8 long years).
Now.. blazing fast compuer allows me to play mind sweeper ever fast.
Oh.. I'm ashamed.. but I've the most horrible thing you can think of: I purchased a real license of XP pro SP2.
congrats on the new comp with that speed, I would not use that XP directly tho, but put linux to run underneath & then run it on virtual system. saves much of trouble on reinstallation. Well, I'll know more later once I get faster net back (lost ADSL-modem on it's firmware upgrade, warranty had expired already - new one coming in from the wippies though). Pretty hard to install something from the net with GPRS-connection, lol =)
Have to confess myself too, using legal windows.. got the vista for free for beta testing it, so it was pretty cost effective solution. how does the system work ? hopefully no problems.. mine keeps crashing, thus the try for virtualization. Not the mem, came clean during weekend of testing.. propably has to do with cmedia's integrated audio
nice, I was considering getting a new quad core myself. still thinking about it, maybe one day, when I make a little more money...
damn i wish i had a new computer. congrats buddy
heh so much wasted potential. wanna trade?
I decided to spend more money now.
I just bought a Lenovo Thinkpad for $1439.81 USD.
I could have paid perhaps only $500 and get a cheap end laptop, but I'd be pissed at myself for doing this and not forking out the extra buck for the 'little' things that makes the laptop a serious beast.
T61p with T9300 (2.5Ghz) Core 2 Duo.
Fingerprint, Bluetooth, Wifi, DVD Recorder, 9cell battery, 3 years warranty.XP pro.
14 inch, not wide-screen.
I hate the wide screen, can't get used to it, plus it is not practical for working environment, where my documents are Portrait and not landscape.
The primary computer will be used by my assistant.
