The new bottom of the barrel
Though I can't say I'm surprised some people have been reduced to this web-browsing technique, it's still sad to hear there are enough people to make a news story out of it:An Article
More Compy Opinions...
Alright, so most people I've talked to recommend getting a Dell. Surfing their site, I put together the following:
Dimension XPS Series
2.8 GHz, 1GB Mem, 18-inch LCD (I'm tired of my 19-inch crt), 128MB ATI Radeon 9800, 80GB HD, DVD Rom drive, 'Free' CD burner (RW, 48/28/48), 1 Year warranty (I figure it will break before then if it is going to). Total price is 2499 (2500), and there is a 150 rebate, not factored into the price. So it could cost me about 2350.
Strange I don't see how many PCI slots it has... I need at least 1 for wireless access... Anyhow, any thoughts, feedback? Thanks!
Edit: Friend of mine suggested Alienware as a cheaper alternative... it's about the same price wise, but seems like a friendlier website for the technically enabled. Considering I actually know the difference between most of the components... Any advice appreciated. :-)
