Ordered a new laptop
Well, I just took the plunge and ordered a new laptop from DELL (yes I know, flame me if you want... lol)
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GhZ 4MB Cache
2 Gig DDR2 667 MhZ Ram
120 GB HDD - May get an additional 320 Gig External HD at some stage
7900 GS - I don't want to play top of the line games (I'm only new to playing computer games anyway, was always a console guy until now).
Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Combination Drive with dual layer write capabilities - May get an external one also if I need to.
17" Wide Screen XGA+ TFT display with TrueLife(TM): 1440x900
Integrated Stereo Sound with Subwoofer - Get external ones later maybe.
Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 Dual Band 802.11a/g 54Mbps Wireless Mini Card
Belkin 802.11g Wireless Router
Dell(TM) Wireless 355 Bluetooth Module
Dell Wireless Photo All-In-One Printer 966
Carry Case - Free.
Total = $AU 3,254.90
That's basically it. I just want everyone's opinion on how long they think it will last? And if I got a good deal or not (I think I did)? Keeping in mind I wont be looking to play top of the line games. It should arrive within 5-7 days.
