A new computer, that is. Its a Sony Vaio and damn, this is the stuff dreams are made of!. 2.0GHz P4, 60gb HD, 512mb DDR SDRAM, 16x DVD-ROM, and a 24x CD-RW. This thing is quick! I just needed something that was a tad better than my old Compaq(200mHz P1, 1.95gb HD, 48mb ram, circa 1997), but I think I got something...uh....ALOT BETTER! Hehe, I've had an ear-to-ear grin all day.

Anyway, just though I'd share.

Well I would, but its gonna take me a while to get used to this thing and figure out all the crap that came with it. Windows XP is a big jump for me, considering my old comp had Windows 95. So far this thing kicks ass.

you dont like XP?????

XP is kickin ass for me, considering my computer came with Windows ME. ME was the worst OS i think i have ever seen. Froze up constantly, and always had the same problem, something about kernel32.dll that just wasnt right.

anyway, i have XP pro, and it kicks ass. never freezes up, never gives any problems, and i like how its set up. Makes my Gateway comp (Never buy one:mad: ) seem to be an alright buy!:p :p

That's it?!?!?!?


























im just messing..... im a lil envious now.... how much did it cost you? was it just the computer or the whole package? and i suggest you convert it to 98SE... XP is too 'girlie' for me.

HAVE FUN WITH YOUR NEW TOY... and uhhh always update your virus checker and scan for errors with scandisk or some tool when you can....

get the XP disc, Restart your computer, and pop it in the CD-Rom right when you turn the computer back on. It should load up and ask you what you want to do from the disc and follow the directions pretty much. At least thats how it seems like i done it.:confused: ;)

It was $950 minus a $100 rebate for just the tower/mouse/keyboard. It was an open box/display model so it was marked down a few hundred.
