    New Computers

    BTW, if anyone needs a new machine, Dell has some insane deals going on.
    • AMD Athlon X2 5600+
    • Vista or XP
    • 2GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz- 2DIMMs
    • 22 inch Samsung 2220W Widescreen Analog/Digital Black LCD Monitor
    • Nvidia Geforce 8600 GTS DDR3
    • 320GB Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache
    • Integrated 10/100 Ethernet
    • Wireless nic
    • 16X DVD+/-RW Drive
    • Integrated 7.1 Channel Audio
    • 1Yr In-Home Service, Parts + Labor, 24x7 Phone Support
    • Get a $100 Gift Card on systems $999 - $1248 (cards to arrive in 6-8 weeks) (Details)
    All of this for $719, that's right with a 22" LCD.

    Note, I don't work for dell, I have nothing to gain. I just saw this deal and thought it was an insane price. Just helpin my fellow CF'ers if any of you are looking at a new PC.

    Yep, that was the deal... really a great deal on a new machine. How can any company compete with dell?

    It's even better when you can find the 30% off coupons


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    That is an absolutely insane deal. The thing that sticks out to me is a 320 GB hard drive. The amount of stuff you don't need that you could store is mind boggling.

    Well I'm a nerd so it's not uncommon for me to use a LOT of storage space. Granted I have stuff for CF but I currently have 6 hard drives full with about 1.8 TB

    And I am NOT going to ask what is taking up so much space, but those divx ahhhhh "movies" could be part of your problem.

    How do you get the $350 off. Is it a dell deal? Or another coupon?

    We currently carry 1TB internal Hard Drives in the University Book Store for $349. They are so heavy, it's crazy.

    Wow, unreal. Wish I was in the market for a new compy.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”
