There was a time when my computer, a 1.0 Ghz Pentium III with hardware acceleration, might be considered a minor deity, but while running modern software, it’s more of a heathen; It’s sluggish, unresponsive, with compile times longer than Jay London‘s hair.
I’ve been looking at getting a new computer for about a year now, and I finally found one for the right price, so I’m making the plunge and purchasing a brand new Dell. In comparison with my current computer, the Dell’s processor is three times as fast, the memory is four times as fast, the hard drive is twice as fast, the video card exists, and there are many other favorable comparisons as well.
