New Dell Inspiron 1300

I've had this Dell Inspiron 1300 (in the middle) for a week or two now, as a replacement for the dead Toshiba Satellite Pro 6100 that Toshiba wanted £520 to repair! The Dell cost me £336 inc vat and delivery, and I also bought another 512mb from the excellent Crucial for £36. The Inspiron has a 1.5ghz Celeron-M (1mb cache version of the Pentium-M), 768mb DDR2 ram, DVDRW/CDRW, 15.4" widescreen TFT, built in wireless, and a long life battery. Flipping bargain if you ask me. I've also managed to sell the dead Toshiba on ebay for £139! Panoramic courtesty of the cute little Kodak Easyshare V570. The Dell has a nice keyboard that is easy (and enjoyable) to touch-type on. The base and screen plastics feel solid and robust, and the built in wifi works well through-out the house.

Indigo Drink - Energy that's a little bit fruity.

Apparently it's an energising Peach and Lemon fruit juice drink with Guarana, Ginseng and Caffiene, however, it seems to just taste purple and sugary to me. Maybe there's a hint, a slight tiny hint of Peach in there? Contains Water, Glucose Fructose Syrup, Fruit juices (10%), Sugar, Taurine, Flavourings (Guarana, Ginseng, Peach, Caffiene), Salt!. And 25mg or caffiene / 100mls! Although this is around the same as instant coffee , so presumably nothing to worry about.
