Default Just pulled trigger - 01-28-2009, 01:30 PM

Hey everyone.

Just pulled trigger on refurb for $213 us.
Went lowest options except 8gb drive and xp will upgrade myself.
Plan to use it as a couch surfer, kitchen recipe guide, possible geocache base unit in jeep, and watch tv shows streamed from my HTPC while walking treadmill in the mornings.

I'm sure Ill have some questions so thanks for all the current info and TIA for the future info :-)


cheers

Well I got it yesterday, got it all setup software wise including 41 windows updates....eeek!

2gb ram should arrive today
internal bluetooth module ships today
runcore ships on 4th (expected)

Pleasantly surprised at lack of bloatware installed, only had to uninstall dell support, that online storage thing, remote assist and ms works.

Installed firefox with adblock and noscript, symantec endpoint and ms o2k7.

Streams tv shows from my snapstream server beautifully too!

neat little pc. I told GF it would be a good little recipe machine in the kitchen so she got on it and she went directly to foodnetwork.com, i set firefox up to only show full screen and she loves it.

should be a neat little toy
