Yesterday, the shipment containing the new Dell Inspiron E1705 arrived. I took it home, configured everything and put it through the motions. It looks and runs fantastic, especially after today’s shipment, 2GB of speedy RAM, arrived.
I got a great price on a machine with all the features I wanted, so waiting four months paid off. The price was great due to a combination good timing, coupons from Dell, and a coupon and 3% cash back from ebates.com [aff].
Now I have to decide what to do with my October 2001 vintage Fujitsu Lifebook C-6631. The AC connector doesn’t stay in the jack in the back of the computer without holding it continuously, and the battery won’t hold a charge. The display flickers occasionally. I upgraded the memory a while ago from 128MB to 256MB. Please leave me some suggestions.
