Computer replacement...

It looks like the Dimension 5100c has finally crapped out. It's bad timing, but it could be worse.

Rather than buying another refurbished machine from the Dell factory outlet, I'm seriously considering a build-to-order box from Central Computers. Here's the specs I'm thinking about:

Intel Core2 Quad Q9550 2.8Ghz
ASUS P5QL Motherboard
4gb RAM


Sanity check?

After recent experience - anything but Dell.

I bought 3 Dells in 2004, they all have died now. They are built to self destruct eventually.

What's the price point of your new machine? I am considering a jack up Mac for photo work (well, a single 2.93 quad core Nehalem)

If you have the bucks, invest in a Mac. You will be so much happier in the long run.

Shop around - Central always had high prices the times I've stopped in.
