I've decided it's time to hop aboard the Mac Hype Train and get me a MacBook
 Pro.  Am I crazy?  Probably.  Regardless, the bank account will appreciate
whatever alleviation it can find, and thus I find myself selling my trusty
Dell Inspiron 1520.  I bought it brand new about 2.5 years ago.  It came
with Windows Vista Home Premium, which I upgraded last year to Windows 7
Home Premium.  It also runs Linux, of course. :)  I ran Ubuntu on it for a
couple of years without a hitch, and I've had Gentoo on it for the past 4

Physically it's in great shape.  I like to take care of my computers. :)
 It's never taken any sort of physical beating, as far as I know (I do have
2 kids).  No dead pixels.  Everything is humming along just like the day it

Below are the tech specs and asking price:

15.4-inch Dell Inspiron 1520

Unless you've got a question about it that would likely benefit the group,
feel free to reply to me off-list.  I'd be happy to answer any questions.
