I need a new computer

My current computer, Dave, is almost 5 years old, and he's showing his age.

The problem is, where do I go for a new one?

Dell is basically out of the question for 2 reasons. Firstly most of their machines only come with Vista, and there's no way I'm touching that yet, plus secondly I really don't want to pay for all the extra bits you get with a Dell computer that you don't have any choice over. Things like speakers, keyboard, mouse, etc. I don't need any of them, as I have enough of them as it is.

If I was back in Brisbane I'd just get the bits I want from Umart and put it together myself. Living in Melbourne there would be the added problem of postage, however I've yet to find a place that can beat Umart's prices.

Anyone have any suggestions?

MSY is the cheapest place I know of, though their range tends to be somewhat limited depending on what you're looking for. CentreCom is pretty decent too.

I usually go to CPL. The only caveat I have is if there is hardware problems, they are slow to sort it out.

I have found the NewComputers ( newcomputers.com.au ) are good for price and service. CPL lost me when a few friends had problems with their service on faulty items. The new computers will be closer too.

People here use MSY (as mentioned above) or Scorptech - www.scorptech.com.au

"I'm afraid I can do that, Dave."

Sorry. Had to. ;)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
