[PUBLIC] And Down She Goes

Well, EMERALD is now taking several tried to boot, and occasionally fails to detect its RAM bus. Given the case is also failing, its clearly time for me to get another source of mobile high-powered computer. So I placed an order for QUARTZ today. Stepping back down to a 15.4" screen, QUARTZ will be my second Alienware. Despite being considerably smaller than EMERALD, QUARTZ will only weigh about 13% less, although it will also have a smaller power brick, something that severely impeded EMERALD's portability. The new machine will also be considerably more power-efficient than the older model, as well as being my first Vista box.

If all goes well, I'll be taking delivery between 2/27 and 3/3. In any event, I should have it before Intercon.
