New Computer

The outpost.com computer does not work! It won't even turn on.

Out of desperation, I purchased a new machine at Circuit City. For $340 I got the computer, monitor, keyboard, mouse, WinXP, and printer.

Achtung! This machine is powerful:

Emachine Brand
Celeron Processor
Windows XP

I died a little on the inside when I bought it.

CELERON?!

Yes, I got a Celeron.

My choices were:

1.8GHz Sempron, no monitor, no printer
2.8Ghz Celeron, monitor, and printer

I figured even if the Sempron was slightly faster than the Celeron it was worth it saving $90 on the monitor and getting a printer for free. I did not get this machine for speed, I got it to dual boot windows.

Hopefully when I'm back at Michigan, this will be come a thin client X-windows system to run jobs on my Mattern PC.
