I was tellin Disillusioned about this deal. A P4-3.2 Gig Dell Poweredge Server 400SC was $475 after rebates and everything (mind you.. the CPU alone costs about $625.

Anyways..this PC is insanely fast. I bought a Western Digital SATA Raptor 10k drive and to give you guys an idea.. it installed Windows XP Pro in NINE minutes from start to finish. From the XP Pro Splash screen to login screen is a shade under 10seconds... unreal. :)

This was a special bout 3 weeks ago.. it literally lasted a total of 30-36 hrs and in that span they got TWENTY FIVE Thousand orders..


It was something like this:

System is $599
- 100 MIR =499
- 10 percent coupon = $440
+ tax = $475.

This pc flies though..this raptor drive I bought the other day really is worth it.

Naw, you don't need a new computer until you start trying to use Kazaa to download software to fix the damage done by downloads through Kazaa. :D

After what Dell did to that poor kid spokesman, I won't support them. I just got a new e machines laptop with a digital widescreen a few weeks ago, the screen quality rocks.

I'm the same way. I have it as the boot drive and a 120GB PATA as a data storage drive. I only have filled out 10GB of the Raptor.
