We haven't bought anything yet, though, because it's a big purchase, and we like to take some time to think before spending so much money. Really, we just need a computer that will let us translate, use the Internet, and watch anime, since that's all we do with our computer. We just happen to do it a lot. And being able to burn CDs and/or DVDs is a plus.
At this point in the story, I realize it would have been funnier if at some point we had thought, "All we want is a computer that won't explode." Because when we got to FHE and told our anime buddy that we were thinking of buying a computer from Dell, the first thing she thought of was hearing about a couple of incidents where Dell laptops exploded. So now I'm a little concerned. I think it should be okay, since we want a desktop computer, not a laptop, and she said they found out that the problem was with the battery, but I'm still paranoid. At the very least, it has a year long warranty, so we should be okay, right? For at least a year, anyway.
We're planning on ordering the computer tomorrow morning, unless one of our computer savvy friends posts a comment saving us from making a terrible mistake.
