I am so glad to find this forum. I love the name.
So, against the advice of some buddies, I purchased a Dell with Vista.
Currently, I am in the process of deploying to Iraq, hence the reason for this purchase. I wanted something cheap that I would not have too much of a loss on if I were to incur damage. I have decided though, my next personal laptop shall be an Apple. So, that goes on my wishlist upon returning hom (hopefully returning home before next year is over).
Anyway, I wanted to introduce myself, and now ..... OFF to read the forums.
