It’s a dell refurbished inspiron 1501. Here are the statistics for people who understand such things. I don’t.

15.4 WXGA Laptop Screen
60 GB SATA Hard Drive (5400 RPM)
6 Cell Primary Battery
24X CD RW/DVD Combo Drive
Dell 1390 Wireless Card

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 256MB HyperMemory

I should point out that I mentioned to S/A that I’d bought a laptop(after I bought it but before it arrived) and she said that she’d been meaning to advise me to buy a laptop. So that was pretty cool.
I had originally intended to wipe the HD and install Linux, but Veen more or less talked me out of it.
