Tonight I purchased a new computer to replace my slowly dying 9 year old desktop and I find myself curious to see what the rest of you are using to get to the BBS. My current (old) PC: P4 2.4 GHz processor 1.8 GB PC 2700 DDR Ram 150 GB hard drive 256 meg ATI Radeon AGP graphics card 52x CDRW drive 28x CD-rom drive My new PC: I7 2.0 GHz processor 6 GB DDR3 Ram 750 GB hard drive Blue-ray player and super-multi-DVD burner 2 USB 2.0 ports 2 USB 3.0 ports HDMI port 17.3" 1600x900 HD display As this is my first laptop, I was also wondering: Should I buy a travel case for it? Is there anything I should be leery of/careful with? As it is a desktop replacement, should I look into getting a docking station for it? If so, how much do these run? Should I get a cooling pad for it? Also, what type of PCs/Macs do you currently use and what are the specs?
