New computer from Dell

I’ve built my last few computers. I love the process of picking out parts, piecing it together a bit at a time, getting premium components, etc. But I just couldn’t turn down the lure of a Dell desktop value. I got the computer below for $1000 shipped — after the Dell coupon. IMO, it’s an incredible performance value.

Highlights include the Duo w/ 4MB L2 cache and 1066FSB along with the 4 GB of RAM.

Lowlight is mainly Windows Vista. If it’s as bad as people say, I might just put XP on it.
