New Computers In The House

By now you’ve probably noticed that we’re not as active online as we were last month. That’s because we have some new family members and we’ve been adjusting to life with them.

Humongous Enormous

That’s right, we got new computers. Meet the twins! Humongous and Enormous. They are identical twins. Well they were when we got them. Now, they are starting to show their own identities. Along with the new computers, we also doubled our screen space by getting two monitors. I have my old monitor and Tim’s old monitor while he got the new monitors.

So what’s under the hood inside the case?

Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Core i7 Gulftown 3.2GHz Six-core Processor with HT Technology
Dual 500GB Hard Drives
24GB Memory
Blu Ray Burner/Reader
DVD/CD Burner/Reader
1GB Dual Port Radeon HD6750 Video Card
Dual 22″ Monitors
Digital Writing Tablet

So, what to do with the old ones that are perfectly usable for the average household?

They will be handed down to the boys for their playroom office. They are probably one of a handful of kids their age who not only have their own computers but powerful ones at that.

I know you’re wondering so here’s what’s under the hoods of their computers.

Windows 7 Ultimate
Intel Core2Quad Q9650 3.0GHz Quad-core Processor
Dual 500GB Hard Drives
8GB Memory
DVD/CD Burner/Reader
512MB Radeon Video Card
19″ Monitor

It’s taken me a while to get my new computer reloaded with all my programs as well as tweak the boys’ new computers for their use.

And I’ve been dreaming up themes for my A to Z blog posts in April. I’d love to hear your ideas for a theme in the comments.
