Glad you got a new system and are up and running gain. I'm currently using an old system that I borrowed from the grandkids room because mine died.

Do you hate changing computers as much as I hate it? I hate having to try to rebuild what feels comfortable to me. Sadly I will have to do just that, one day soon . . . when Dell ever gets me a replacement system for mine that died - died dead, as in will not boot at all. And it is only 1.5 years old.

Dell shipped out 2 different sets of replacement parts, neither of which fixed it and finally agreed to just replace the system under warranty, but . . and that is a very big but, but they don't even have a ship date on the replacement system. They say there is a shortage of necessary parts due to flooding in Thailand. I accused them of giving my case a low priority because it is a warranty case and said if I was buying a new system and sending them money for it that I bet they could find parts. But that probably isn't true, especially since I know someone who's mother ordered a new Dell last week and was given a 6 week estimate on her new system being shipped.

But, I should be glad I have access to this one, at least I am not completely dead in the water. It is a slow computer, but better than no computer.

Thanks, but I am expecting a new system from Dell - this one was still under warranty so I should not have to buy a replacement, even with a super price. Glad you found a good BIN merchant though - sounds like the price can't be beat! :)
