The Laptop I Ordered

This is the laptop I ordered:

Dell Vostro 1700 - a 17 inch wide screen - WOW!
Intel Core Duo T7250 cpu - ZOOM!
256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT POW!

It should arrive in 3 to 5 working days - too bad we are now into the weekend. I can't wait!


  1. Great news, Kevin! How much RAM is it shipping with? Maybe we can work on upping you to the full 4 Gig it has space for.

    Vista has some serious issues - I get to spend next week fixing up a friend's new Vaio laptop where Vista is screwing everything up - so if you're encountering issues, drop me an email and I can try and walk you through fixing them. I can even pick up a calling card, give you the pin info, and we can hop on the phone if need be.

    Gotta keep you blogging and Second Life'ing. ;)

    When you're downloading any software, especially anything open source, pay close attention to what Vista users are experiencing. Coding for Vista compatibility is causing us (programmers) no end of headaches - I think it's an evil Microsoft plot to undermine the open source movement. LMAO But seriously, if other users are saying "this isn't working well with Vista," pay attention and don't even try to get it to work. It's a nightmare.

    If you want, I can email you a list of Vista tips and tweaks to make it a little more stable and a little less annoying. Just drop me an email and I'll put it together for you.

    Can't wait to hear the laptop has arrived! Woot!

  2. Congratulations Kevin. Way to go! Good for you. You deserve it and apparently everyone who helped you in obtaining believe so as well.

  3. Dell delivers really fast in Nashville. I was shocked at how quickly my computer arrived.
