After promising myself a new PC for a long, long time, I finally bit the bullet today and opted for a new HP Pavilion Elite PC. So far, so good. I’ll have a play around with it before I use it to get down to the nitty gritty of work. With an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and 3 GB of RAM, its a major step up from my last PC (an AOpen-based XC Cube I built myself) and should handle the newer, more process intensive, applications with ease. Fingers crossed.
