Dell inspiron Ordered!

This is pos­si­bly the fastest ever in decision-making through­out my fam­ily his­tory. =P

Merely days after our old Sony Vaio refused to con­tinue it’s demand­ing (and I do mean demand­ing) job serv­ing our fam­ily, we were already search­ing head over heels over the week­end for a new laptop.

And on the third day, we’d already stamped on an order of a Dell insp­iron 1520 online.

Two is always the per­fect num­ber. Before the Vaio died, com­puter usage in my fam­ily is in equi­lib­rium. I dom­i­nate the desk­top, and my sis — the Vaio. Mum would sneak in to use any of the two when­ever she spots a vacancy. Dad well, got his own iBook G4 to worry about.

You could only very well guess what hap­pened when the Vaio died. It’s a tech-savvy fam­ily. All four of us check our mails daily. Talk about hav­ing mod­ern par­ents. =P

That only explains why we were in such a hurry to pur­chase a new lappie.

Okay, girls this is as far as you read. Boys, you uh, prob­a­bly could start read­ing from here. =P (Author’s dis­claimer: I’m not a sex­ist. My apolo­gies if this sen­tence offends you. It’s only com­mon gen­er­al­i­sa­tion. I have no fur­ther intentions.)

The Dell insp­iron 1520 is one–sweet-juicy-babe macho-assed-powerhorse. So good, even the über geek (I stopped call­ing myself one after I got to know him XD), Piaw, whom I con­sulted on the specs were head over heels after it.

So on to it’s juicy specs:

Intel Core 2 Duo Proces­sor T5450 — 1.66 GHz, 2MB Cache, 667 MHz FSB
15.4? Widescreen WXGA Dis­play
2GB (2 X 1024MB) 667MHz Dual Chan­nel DDR2 SDRAM
120GB SATA HDD
8X DVD+/-RW Combo w/dual layer write capa­bil­i­ties
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 256MB GDDR2 ded­i­cated (Oh boy I’m lov­ing this one. =P)
Gen­uine Win­dows Vista Home Pre­mium — with AERO expe­ri­ence
Intel PRO/Wireless 3945 Dual Band 802.11a/g 54Mbps Wire­less Mini Card
6-cell 53Whr Lithium Ion Pri­mary Battery

Of the 8 colours offered, we went for the Jet Black with Matte Fin­ish on grounds that it has a sexy con­trast. XD From the pic­tures we could only say that much.

But dad and I have this con­fi­dence in Dell lap­tops. They actu­ally do perform.

And it comes with a bloody NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT! XD To help you get the pic­ture, it’s the exact graphic card they fit in the Apple Mac­Book Pro’s. =P

Oh, I can’t wait. XD Too bad the deliv­ery takes a bloody max­i­mum of 12 work­ing days. Which means it could be two weeks before we get to play with it. It’s gonna be well worth the wait though. XD
