The last computer in my life not running Windows 7 is my primary development machine. Today, in approximately 49 minutes, that’s all about to change:
I’m actually only going to be running this for a while…this machine is SO old school…at least six months old!
The order for my new beast of a machine is off to Dell:
- i7 quad core processor – this is rated FOUR TIMES faster than my current processor config. Nice.
- 8Gb Ram
- 1TB hard drive on Raid 0
- Windows 7…huzzah!
- 1Gb graphics with 2xDVI output plus two USB video adapters, which I need for the…
- Dell 21.5” multi-touch monitor…huzzah! …along with the other three monitors tied to my system: 24” Wide, and 2x19” 4:3
So, this computer (now a mere 43 minutes away from Win7) will only serve me for a few weeks in a primary capacity. Then it gets nuked for a clean OS install for the next owner.
We’re also very close to deploying our new NAS solution which will give me 6TB on raid 5 with 100MB/sec (yes, full gigabit transfer rates, woot!) just an IP address away.
Ah…to be a geek!
