I just got a Dell e1505 laptop in the last month. Here's a list of some of the features:

  • Core Duo T2500
  • 1 gig of RAM
  • 120 GB HDD
  • 15" 1680×1050 screen
  • NVIDIA GeForce 7400
  • 80 WHr battery and 53 WHr battery

It came with Windows XP Media Center Edition. I played with it for all of a day or so. Then I got down to business and replaced it with Ubuntu Linux 6.06 Dapper. Now it was loving me. I'm thinking about getting the VMWare Workstation and putting XP in that along w/ Edgy. (Yes, I know VMWare Player is free).

I've gotten Prey to run on it under Cedega (was WineX). That game is pretty cool. Lots of fun with physics and gravity.

Next toy on the list: Nokia 770, though I might wait and ask for it for Christmas.
