    AMD all the way.

    They're cheaper, faster and don't have annoying 'di-di-dilla-dill' sound bites on Dell commercials!

    no i let you dig your own graves these days!
    The question wasnt whether you should build your own or get a dell the question was releated to mobos, my view on computers is if it works then i dont really care what inside, but i guess for you older geeks it matters

    I have to admit, the only reason I pulled Amy's apart was to replace the battery, but that's really beside the point :)

    I was actually quite impressed with how well packed in it all was.

    I've heard stories that when Sony was miniaturizing its Walkmans, they used to throw the prototypes in a bucket of water. The idea was that if air bubbles came out, there was still room to make it smaller.

    I'm telling you: you wouldn't see many bubbles out of that iPod!

    Why is it, this comment doesn't surprise me from a help desk bloke?

    Not surprising Dan loves Dells :)

    I dont know how many times I have to tell you.....I dont work on a "help Desk"

    on top of that the support I do, do is Application support not hardware support.
    Anyone can support desktops, software is a lot trickier to handle!
