I'd wait a while before a buy a Dell. Intels new Proccesors that are coming out are shaping up to be pretty damn good. And then there's rumored to be the war between AMD and Intel sometime this summer. I've had no problem running HP's. My Pentium 2, 300Mhz computer somehwere in my basement still runs after...alot of years. And my recent Presario SR1750NX that I bought from Bestbuy has served me well so far since late January.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
