Laptop follow up

I got the replacement part for my laptop power connector today. I managed to get it soldered into place, but it was a struggle because the board is all melted from the short. Kinda scary. It's a little fragile, and I worry about how long it's going to hold.

Anyway, I just happened to find a Dell coupon for $750 off any laptop over $1,500. I was really reluctant, and I have a ton of purchase regret already (even though it won't arrive for two weeks), but I got exactly what I wanted for $756. That's not horrible, even though I'd rather not spend anything. Still, the thing is my life line for work. Cost of being a contractor I guess.

So, which Dell model did you end up getting? I have been using the Dell Inspiron 8000 for many years. A lot longer than I usually keep computers. It was one of the first with a 15" screen.

I am thinking my next computer will be smaller, but with a dock and nice external monitor. I probably will be getting the Latitude D410, although the X1 is really cool, but no dock options.

It is amazing to me some of the deals they offer.

It was the 6000.
