A New Addition For The Metal Media Office

Several months ago I had some fun and shared the various pieces of technology that made up my Metal Media Office. If you didn’t see it just click HERE to be more up to speed. Since the time that I shared those images, the Dell Studio laptop began having numerous problems with over-heating and performance so it needed to be replaced. I had it since 4/2009 and considering how much I used it I am surprised to find it lasting that long. Below is a photo of the latest device to join my creative arsenal. Check it out.

It’s also a Dell system and one of their Inspiron models. It’s sort of gray in color and the screen display is super clear and I think 19″ with some of that being the sides around the display. Its fine for me for sure. I had it loaded with Windows 8, a 1TB hard drive and 8GB of RAM. Once I got it fully powered I upgraded it to Windows 10 and the latest Microsoft Office (which at the time of this writing is the Office 2016). It was the first time that I would lease the license for said software as opposed to owning it outright but by doing this I can install on all of my other systems and be in complete sync. That is very important to me. So far so good with this system, I like how it feels and now the decision on what to do with the old Studio machine. Perhaps I will repair the stuff that makes it overheat and use it as my travel system for short trips. I haven’t decided yet if the costs to work on it is worth it. So there you go, another look inside at my real life world and the things that help me manage its duties.
