Hi, Big day today. I am finally going to buy a new machine. Buying a computer is not that simple, there are just too many choices :S. but I had to set my priorities. My first priority was to set a dedicated place for work away from TV and bed :), so I decided to have a desktop PC instead of a laptop, secondly in the price range I am looking for I ll get a far superior customized desktop machine than a branded laptop. I opted to go for PC rather than MACs because MACs are insanely expensive. I've put a 3k AED budget for my machine and the price quotations I took from shops I think I ll get a good deal. and incase I need to work on the MAC platform I will build a VM for it.
I will post the full specifications of the machine once I get it but basically I am going for a
- Core 2 Quad 6600 processor + Intel Motherboard
- 4 GB Ram
- 1 TB HD
- NVidia Graphics card
- other necessitates.
My wife was a little skeptical about all this as I frequently gets these rush of blood and enthusiasm that fades away rather quickly, but I need to prove her that this time I am really serious about work :D.
Wish me luck
