I just got to order a new pc for myself at work. Although it was a Dell (state contract with Dell for K-12 education) it has a Pentium Core 2 3.0Ghz with a gig of ram and a nice 19 inch lcd. All for under a thousand dollars too. I’ve been wanting to try out one of the Core 2 since I built my gaming machine to see if all the hype about AMD getting beat by the Pentium chip was true. Anything will be better than what I have now, a Celeron 1.7 with 512 mb ram. It will be almost quadrapole the processing power.
