this one won't come with a pink armband

i just got a bump in my dell preferred gold account. after having tech lust flashes while setting up my bro's new lappy, i decided to actually get myself something for my birthday this year. while Dell's APY is fucking obnoxious, I don't think I will pay on their terms, particularly once I sell the old lappy. this should get here at/on my b-day.

Anyone want an Inspiron 8200? 15" LCD, pimped out ram (768 meg), 1.6 GhZ, 60 gig HD. DVD player and a CDR and Floppy (all modular), media kit for TV hookup. Winxp Pro & Office 2k3, Onboard NIC/sound, and I'll even throw in a PCMCI Wireless-B card, and whatever software you need with the puppy. starting at 700$, but i am negotiable. more details by request.

Ooooooooh...I need a laptop.
Depending on how soon you need to sell it...
Feb. 10th, 2006 07:33 pm (UTC)
first come, first serve - how soon could you theoretically buy it?
Feb. 10th, 2006 07:40 pm (UTC)
In that case, nevermind. I'll let someone who has cash /now/ buy it. ^-~

well you did MENTION interest first
thats why i was askin about your timeframe. i don't need the thing out the door tomorrow.
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:35 pm (UTC)
Indeed I did
But remember that I am a college student. It will take me a while to come up with $700 beyond my usual college (read: design supplies) expenses. I'll start saving, and if you still have it when I've got the money, or when I get close, I'll get back to you, ne?

Does it come w/ a full, life-time bernie support contract? Cause that might be worth $700 just by itself...
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:13 pm (UTC)
i would certainly do my best to help out if someone i know gets it. i sure as hell ain't doin that shiot for a stranger tho.
Feb. 10th, 2006 07:52 pm (UTC)
pretty nice.
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:15 pm (UTC)
i can't wait
i'm using my laptop more now than i ever had before, it will be nice to have an upgrade.
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:16 pm (UTC)
I need one also...
But I'd totally have to figure out how to scramble the cash. I need to get *something* decent to be able to take to school with me for Thesis.

like i said above
i'm not running this out the door. if you can work somehting out i'll definitely throw it your way. if it does go before then, i can help you out getting something useable (if you need the help, that is). i get a decent discount through work - do you need more than word processing?

Re: like i said above

I need to be able to run pshop, and autoCAD-- simultaneously.(that's like a primary concern) Word processing, 3d Studio Max. Form Z. Maya. Lightwave.

In short? I need a 3-d engine.

Word processing is the least of my problems.
Feb. 10th, 2006 09:28 pm (UTC)
then you would need my machine + a coule hundred bucks in upgrade (max ram, newer HD)

i can do photoshop and a dreamweaver + web browser and word processing (and chat) simul without a dogout, but i have a feeling cad is a bit more than dreamweaver + the others in terms of strength.

for what you are talking, the kind of laptop i just got is ideal, but like 3+g. you should scope out their financing options. if your credit history is not in the sewer, you should be able to break it down for like 80$ a month if you can make the minimums, probably with no interest. i get a 2-12% discount (depending on the options) if you want me to mail you a cart.

Re: wow
I had found one a while ago, that I wanted... Not a dell. I'd have to look it up again. It was PERFECT for what I needed- but it was also $3500 bucks. :(

Let me see if I can dig it up again and show you. I know Alienware makes one that's the same specs, but more money.
Feb. 10th, 2006 09:34 pm (UTC)
specwise there are def other people than dell out there, but in terms of financing, they are usually only going to take a CC. dell's app is online, and takes about 5 minues to run through, at which point you know exactly how much you _can_ spend, and if you are wasting your time. the inspiron 17 series with a dual core, 2gig of ram, and a 256 nvidia will do your job for you - but, like i said, priceyy.

"i get a decent discount through work"

we will talk later.

Re: like i said above
seconded :-p
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:17 pm (UTC)
my friend's in the market, but maybe he doesn't have cash. I am leaving him a msg.
Feb. 10th, 2006 08:44 pm (UTC)
lemme know what happens.
Feb. 10th, 2006 09:08 pm (UTC)
Re: welp
sure enough. as you said to someone else, first come first serve, so don't hold it.
Feb. 12th, 2006 08:52 pm (UTC)
If this is still around in a month, I'll buy it.
