Yeah, and it's a bit sweeter since that $150 turned out to be only $65 more so obviously I was coming over to the duo side!
I'm not too concerned about quad cores and vista. Whatever...that's down the road a little ways and XP suits me just great. What is all this 3D and vista supposed to be about anyway? Is it all just gonna be fancy stuff? Try not to laugh, but this duo core 1.6 is my new pc. Do you even wanna know what my old one was? Haha....AMD K62-500mhz....20 gig HD, 320mb ram, 16 meg voodoo3 2000 video...and I ran XP on it flawlessly at all settings toward "max performance". Good pc for websurfing, d/ling, burning cd's...but alas I had to let it go! I'm hoping this Satellite will last me good through the next 2 years of school.
Thank you all for all the knowledge and helpful info on duo core, etc. You are all a good bunch of dudes.
