Indexing a book is mind numbing. And that is what I am doing right now. Indexing my 310 page book. So I need to have distractions to keep me going. I set myself goals. Index 60 items and I can have a 20 minute break. During those breaks, of late, I have been looking around to see what kind of rig I can get online with Windows 7. newegg.com, yesterday, pointed me towards iBUYPOWER.
I, the professional cynics, cynic checked them out. Not bad.
Windows 7 Professional, legit, OEM is $149 (though newegg was offering it to me a few days ago at $129).
Try this AMD configuration which comes in at $620 with shipping with Windows 7 Professional installed. << It has LIQUID COOLING. >>
Not as good as what I have but mine, in the end, was nearly 3x times more! I think this rig would be pretty awesome … albeit with just one monitor.
From what I can see I could get a dual-monitor rig, with 4GB for under $800.
I am not going to get it before Christmas. Let them take care of the Christmas gifts. I can also get it via newegg.com … who are still offering me 0% interest credit until Nov. 2010.
I will keep you posted. Happy holidays.
