I might be getting a new desktop (after, I don’t know, eight years…).
This computer I am currently using runs on a 70GB hard drive, and probably the shittiest processor know to man. It takes me an hour to upload a five minute video. The speakers are even older, from when I got my first computer thirteen years ago; the sound gives out if I neglect to use it for a while. The keyboard is a hand-me-down from my mom’s office after I spilled a frappuccino into my old one. The mouse pad is a tattered, scared looking Mickey Mouse, which has been sitting under my equally old Logitech mouse for just as long as this computer’s been around. And did I mention that my monitor’s so crap, I can’t see full channels on YouTube? It only extends to the part where my channel is edited; alligned with the channel stuff in the middle of the page… Needless to say, I need this new desktop.
Dell is having a sale. :O My friend thinks Dell is shit, but, for what it’s worth, my current Dell worked GREAT in it’s prime. I remember there was a time where it took a few seconds for YouTube videos to load. But now it’s old, full of viruses and glitches and crap (thank you dA…) and things aren’t working as well as they used to (especially since I have over 30GB of music…
I’m looking into a Dell Studio XPS 8100. Intel (R) Core TM i7 processor, 1TB hard drive, Blu-ray player… It even has an option for Adobe Photoshop Elements and Adobe Premire Elements.
Needless to say, I jizzed my pants when I found this desktop.
My father’s already on my side with this. Now we just have to pursuade my mother to get it before August 6th, when the sale finishes.
I’ll keep you posted.
