Ok, so it’s not completely new; it’s recycled from our former CTO. And it came with 256MB of RAM. How can a CTO even consider only 256MB of RAM sexy?
Anyway, I ordered 512MB to supplement whatever I find in here, and off I will go.
And if anyone is curious, it is a Dell Inspiron 8500. A step up from the Thinkpad 600X I had been using. And thankfully this is one of the only Dells with a pencil eraser pointer, not just the glide pad. I have NEVER liked glide pads.
Ok, I have spent the last 3 hours tweaking this thing…off to do something resembling work.
