Computers take II

Out of celebration for finally finishing my thesis [1]
I wanted to try, try again to purchasing a new Windows machine
for personal and commercial use as I have never owned my own computer.

The Sony 505GX [2] fell through out of disgust for
their sales force and undue delays. I ordered a Dell, which will
be available September 9th. I am the very first order they
took on this machine configuration. They don't even tell
anyone they offer it yet.

Dell Inspiron 7000 [3] $4343
15" Liquid crystal display
300Mhz Pentium II
8.0G hdd
ATI Rage LT Pro w/8Meg
integrated 56k modem
plus extras

I'll let everyone know how it works out, but
at 8.9 pounds, it'll really be a workout. Such
extremes, I went from a just enough power Sony
at 2.9 pounds to a powerhouse at 8.9. Go figure.
