Note: at the time, davepoobond was computer shopping because the computer they had was literally a piece of shit. The specs mentioned weren’t the final components of the computer, but it was pretty close. Considering the shitfest davepoobond came from on that computer to using a new computer which was basically top of the line at the time (which also shows this IM’s age), is like heaven.
