Yesterday I received my brand new Dell.

Now I can spend the long winter nights on this god-forsaken island (England) admiring my awe-inspiring code on my new 20-inch monitor. This while the new fan purrs; softly and gently in the background. The fan will be cooling down a 3.6GHz Processor. I will also occasionally be disturbed by the sweet, comforting writing sounds of the new 500GB hard drive.

The whole idea of me and my Dell spending so much time together almost gets me misty-eyed!

Update: Its now 4 years later, a different continent (Africa) and a more modern OS (Vista Ultimate SP2) and me Dell Boy is still running as smooth as ever – touch wood! Dell has scored some serious points with me because of this machine.
