    ok heres the deal, i think i am on the verge of killing this damn inspiron 2200. i need something that can take what i throw at it, like a crapload of music, videos, and still surf the inroweb just as fast as if i didnt have all of it on my computer. I'm looking at a Gateway, heres is the link. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=009&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=190104333433&rd=1&rd=1

    anyone running the new Vista? I think Boggerless is, how do you like it? would this handle my needs?

    also, would you fellow CK5ers buy from ebay?

    thanks in advance.

    I don't like the idea of buying a used computer, but that's just me. :crazy: But whatever the case, you can probably agree:

    Don't.

    Buy.

    Whats wrong with your dell? I've had my desktop 5 years and laptop 1 year, and they both are fine.

    All the **** they pack into it by way of software I can deal with. Fit and finish isn't there, and my dvd burner spit out a foam rubber disc one day after making a horrible squealing sound and ruining a few discs. :angry1: It vibrates, hums, rattles... Kind of like my truck, now that I think about it. :thinking:
