I’ve been pretty happy with my Lenovo S10 Netbook, and furnished it with a 320GB hard drive and 2GB RAM. It is great for travel, even though I tend to plug it into an external monitor wherever I can since 600 pixels is just not enough to work on spreadsheets (even though it works well for email…). But at home in front of my 1920×1200 monitor, I missed the performance of a high-powered machine. So I bought a desktop computer:
HP Pavilion Elite e9110t PC
- 64-bit Windows 7 (64-bit)
- Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Quad processor Q8300 [2.5GHz, 4MB L2, 1333MHz FSB]
- 8GB DDR3-1066MHz SDRAM [4 DIMMs]
- 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
- 1GB ATI Radeon HD 4650 [DVI, HDMI, VGA]
Needless to say, this quenched my need for speed. Click through to see the full comparison between my two machines.
