This thing is amazing, especially the touchscreen it's like a huge iPod touch but bigger and better. You just use your fingers to flick though your photographs, browse online, write notes and choose your music. The huge screen takes some getting used to, I even have to stand to reach the top of the screen :D Dunno what else to add at the minute cause I still haven't tried everything but for those who like to know the ins and outs here's the specs:

* All in One PC with 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T8100 with 3MB L2 Cache
* 4GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory (2x2048MB), 750GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s hard drive
* NVIDIA GeForce 9600 M GS HD graphics module with 512MB dedicated video memory and support for Blu-ray, and Microsoft DirectX 10
* Slot-load Blu-ray player and SuperMulti DVD burner, Wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n with built-in WLAN antenna and Integrated Bluetooth
* Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium, dims in inches: 26.04" (W) x 5.47" (L/D) x 19.63" (H) approx., 35.28 lbs approx.

Wow that's awesome Marge. Congrats. Hmm my Mom has been hinting on one of these.
Well I hope she has lots of money cause they're bloody expensive :laugh: I would never have bought one myself even if I had that kind of money in my pocket cause I couldn't justify the expense but it's an absolute beauty it really is. I've fallen in love with a pc :D
I'm still not getting used to this screen. I looked forward to having a big monitor but now I've got it I keep thinking I wish it were a teeny bit smaller, though it's good for editing photographs and such cause you can see everything all at once :laugh: I'm loving being able the touchscreen though :)

And that is the justification for 2 screens of equal size - once you get them you wonder how you lived without for so long :)

Course it helps if one happens to be your 50" HDTV and you have lots of *ahem*"content" to watch on it :D

yeah.... messed with one at Best Buy. It's nice.... but i honestly think it could have been slightly nicer. especially in the "OMG my pockets were just blown to shreds" department.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
