Slow is better than not at all.
I've checked out the Dells and would certainly buy another since my last one is nearing 6 years old and still has minimal issues. However, I'm having a hard time talking myself out of this
beast. It's still a month or two until I buy a new one though, I won't be earning per-mile pay for a few weeks yet, and after that I have a credit card to pay off and a $350 bottle of scotch to buy. I was initially going to just get some ultra-light portable thing, but I would miss gaming. I've got time to research though, so we'll see.
