My new PC has arrived and so far I've been very happy with it. I decided on a Dell Dimension running Windows Vista with a Intel Core Duo 2 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 250 GB hard drive, and I even splurged on a remote control so I can control DVDs and music from bed. And best of all, it doesn't crash relentlessly and randomly like my old Gateway PC! Finally, I can get back to work. Um... maybe after I finish this game. *cough*
Speaking of new purchases, with the seemingly imminent official announcement from Microsoft about the Xbox 360 Elite (codename: Zephyr) just moments/days away, I have to wonder how many of you out there are frothing at the mouth to buy one. The larger hard drive is a great step forward, but of course it'll also be available separately for existing Xbox owners. HDMI is nice, but if you already have an Xbox then you're most likely already getting good visuals. Where's the upgrade incentive? Is it the limited edition black case and accessories? If I had an HDTV I might be tempted, but as it stands I'm going to continue to hold off on getting a second current generation console (I learned last generation that a Sony PlayStation 2 could live in harmony with my Nintendo GameCube (provided I keep them separated on the shelf)). So what about you? Are you planning to take the Xbox 360 Elite plunge? Cast your vote and leave some comments.
