Default Just ordered a Dell laptop

I ordered a laptop from Dell last night. Inspiron 1501 with the Turion 64 MK-36, 1gb DDR2 memory, 120gb hard drive, Vista home premium, ATI Xpress1150 integrated video and an 8x dual-layer DVD burner. I really should have gone for the 2gb memory upgrade, damn. I wonder how well this will play World of Warcraft?

Well, I got thinking..I really should have gone for that memory upgrade, so I went and submitted a request for an order cancellation. Hopefully it gets put through in time *crosses fingers*. I resubmitted an order for an Inspiron 1501, but this time I chose the Turion 64 X2 TL-56, 2gb DDR2-533, 120gb hard drive, Dell 810 all-in-one and a cool flame sticker job.

That'll kick ass. And if it doesn't run any game very well, just turn off shadows, reflections, and shaders. You'll gain about 40fps and won't care in about 3 minutes.

Meh, Dell's not bad. It's just that conventional PCs are rendered obsolete by the availability of the Mac OS on the Intel platform. There's still reasons to run Windows as a secondary OS, but for the majority of computer users, there's no compelling reason not to use OS X as a primary OS.
