I customized a Dell Vostro 1500 and I was looking for opinions on it.
If you can think of somewhere that I can cut costs, places that might be cheaper, something I forgot, or any other comments/suggestions, I'd really really appreciate it!
I'll be using this system to run Solidworks 2007 (CAD software) and Matlab for school, basically. It's not for gaming, but Solidworks is a processor-intense program.
**I'd rather have Windows XP than Vista, but that wasn't offered in this build. Any ideas?
