Just got email confirmation of my new laptop I ordered on the cheap from the Dell outlet for < $1000. I need something portable to do the work-from-home thing. Of course, I wait till late in the contract to get a laptop, but I've just never been that ... "smart" I think is the word I'm looking for.

The specs:

  • Inspiron 6000 Notebook: Intel Pentium M Processor 715 (1.50 GHz/2MB Cache/400MHz FSB)
  • Microsoft Windows XP Professional
  • 512 MB DDR2 SDRAM 400MHz (1 DIMM)
  • 80 GB EIDE Hard Drive (5400 RPM)
  • 15.4 inch WXGA Notebook Screen
  • Intel PRO/Wireless 2915 Internal Wireless 802.11a/b/g,54Mbps
  • 8X DVD ROM Drive

I don't often purchase new hardware, so I'm excited. Not as excited as for the new messenger bag, but still excited. And I think it's got more processing power than all of my desktop machines--including the Web server--combined. I really don't purchase new hardware that often.

Although I'm most excited about the "AOL 9.0 ISP Software" that comes bundled. Sweet. "You've got crap!"
