I purchased my very first computer just a few days ago and now I got it today in the mail! For those who saw my thread last time, you knew that I was looking for a new computer. In the end, I settled for a used one. It's absolutely fantastic! Here is what I got: Dell Inspiron 8000 Intel Pentium III (700mhz) 512mb of RAM 40GB of Hard Drive DVD Drive CD-RW Drive (Removable) Floppy Drive (Removable) 15 Inch Screen Windows XP Profesional The extra stuff... Microsoft Wireless Mouse 2 Batteries 2 Adapters Wireless PC Card Slim SCSI Adapter PC Card Dell Carrying Case It's an incredible deal! I paid $300CDN (total). Everything looks brand new. The only evidence that it might have been used is some, but very little, wear on the keys. Everything else looks untouched. :surprised Yes, it's not as fast or light as I wanted, but it will do. The price for all the extra stuff alone is almost $300! Everything still has the original bag and case that it came in. In the end, I saved at least $500 going with this. I'm typing on it as we speak!!!
