What is your dream computer, and it has to be fairly realistic,(10,000$ or less)

I am still trying to figure mine out, but I think it would be either some kind of alien ware, or a falcon northwest gaming machine, or maybe even just a custom make....

Interestingly enough, Alienware machines are now being carried in Best Buy. This is quite a shift for a company that started out building high-quality custom gaming rigs. Hopefully this move towards mass marketing doesn't affect the quality of their machines in any way.

Oh god, I also hope that the qulaity of the machines is not put on the back burner from this move towards mass sales. Come to think of it, I have a friend that recently got a new Alienware system and there were quite a few things wrong with it when he first got it, such as a non-working hard drive. However, now that he has it up and running, seeing him play counter-strike on it brings a tear to my eye.

You forgot Instant Messaging
Once in a restaurant, I saw a young couple, that looked like they are on a date. They both were talking on cell phones, articularly chatting away. Then it occured to me: maybe they've been talking to each other
