I will have installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Pro SP2, with all available updates from Microsoft.
I will install, upon request, beta versions of Microsoft Office 2007, Nero Burning Rom Premium Version 7, Adobe Photosuite CS2.
I also have about 15 gigs of random music files that I can put on it.
This system is strong enough to do almost anything you would ever want, from intense 3d computer games and cad programs, to writing computer programs, to surfing the web, chatting online, and typing papers.
The system is in awesome shape. I have just installed a new display panel and quiet CPU cooling fans, both directly from Dell.
