art of the stated purpose of "The Retro Ferrari" is invoking jealousy, so you made my day.
I could be eviller, and have mentioned that I also have a 320 gig external backup HD, and a extra 500gig internal HD (it was the primary HD on a previous incarnation of the computer), an external 3.5 floppy drive (not sure where it is though).... And (once I talk hubby into it), I'm going to upgrade the mobo and processor.... I bought a Turtle Creek soundcard, but it wont fit on the current mobo. So the speakers are a little thinner sounding than they are technically capable of achieving. Anyway, to answer your comment about the e-sketchpad, The drawing tablet is nice, BUT definitely research first... I have an Adesso from TigerDirect, it's good, but the upgrade to the software that comes with it is for the included, you can use it for text recognition, but if you want to use it as a graphics tablet, the upgrade to that feature is IMO a little overpriced, thought it apparently does make the entire tablet a drawing tablet. The drawing area for it with Photoshop is definitly smaller and I think harder to navigate (its not marked). A nice feature is that it can be used separately (not plugged into the computer), and your scribbles can be imported as a jpeg. But if I were to do it over, I would have held off, saved a bit more, and gone for the Wacom tablet, even if they are way expensive.
