I just ordered a new computer from Dell: the XPS 410. I got a much cheaper configuration than the one reviewed there.
- XPS 410
- Intel(r) Coreâ„¢2 Duo Processor E6600 (4MB L2 Cache,2.4GHz,1066 FSB)
- 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz - 2 DIMMs
- 22 inch E228WFP Widescreen Digital Flat Panel
- 256MB nVidia GeForce 7900 GS
- 250GB Serial ATA 3Gb/s Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cacheâ„¢
- Genuine Windows Vistaâ„¢ Home Premium
Given my limited budget I think I got a pretty nice system. Despite the common perception, I'm not a "geek" and don't really live on the bleeding edge of technology. My computers usually last me five years or more, and when I upgrade I get something in the middle of the pack.
