I just ordered a new laptop! :) Here's the specs:

Dell I5100,15.0" XGA,
2.4 GHZ-P4
256 MB, 266 MHZ
32 MB ATI MOBILITY RADEON 7500
40 GB ULTRA ATA HD
24X CD-RW/DVD COMBO

With a $200 rebate and my EPP discount (10% off) it only ran a little over 1,400.

Here's what it's replacing
Dell Latitude C800
800 MHZ - P3
128 MB, 133 MHZ
4 MB INTEGRATED VIDEO ADAPTER
10 GB HD
20X BASIC CD-ROM

Now the worst part....waiting a week and a half to get it! :mad:

I would if I could, FYB! The reason I ordered a new one is because the one I have now belongs to the company I currently work for and I was recently offered a sweet IT job with the local City government. So IF I take the new job the old laptop goes bye-bye back to my (current) boss.

Sorry, Bro! :(

**EDIT** The reason I ordered it right now is because as long as I currently work here I get a discount with Dell because the company is a global level 6 customer with Dell. Of course, I still have to pay for it myself but I saved a few hundred bucks with the discount! :)

Both of those laptops are better than the one I'm using right now (500 Mhz P3, 96MB Ram, 2MB video chip, 5GB HDD, broken mouse)

It's sad. I run my to the industries highest specs all the time. But then again - some people are poor.

Go to school, get a job, buy a comp, upgrade it every month!
It is simple as 1,2,3,...

If it's easy as 1,2,3,... then people won't be stuck with old pentiums and O/S...

TALK is easy but ACTION is what it takes.
