Finally got round to buying a new laptop from Dell, here are some of the specs:


Dell XPS M1530
Windows Vista SP1 Home Premium
CORE 2 DUO T9300 2.50GHz,800,6M
15.4″ Widescreen WUXGA (1920×1200) TFT Display
Memory Dual Channel 4.0GB (2×2048 ) 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Hard Drive : 500GB Serial ATA (5400RPM)
Graphics Card 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8600M GT

Gets the job done. I also bought a new headset to replace the cheap-oh Skype one. I use it for both gaming and podcasting and the sound quality is excellent, it even has comfy velvet on the ear pieces:


THIS basically sums it all up.

Laptop Upgrade-oh April 17, 2008

Finally got round to upgrading the RAM on my laptop from an appalling 512MB to a reasonably beastly 2GB. At least I’ll now be able to open more than 2 programs at once without said laptop shitting itself. I’ll also be able to play games made within the last year but that’s pretty pointless since I can’t really be arsed with PC games (more trouble than they are worth) and the only ones I do play are Football Manager 2008 and the occasional session on Space Cadet 3D Pinball.
