The box. It didn't seem heavy at first, but about half a minute into carrying it, I was in pain. I nearly threw my back out. My neighbor buddy Atul was there to take pics. It weighs about 7 kilograms, or 15 pounds.
Here I'm stunned at just how big it is.
Neat shot with industrial, lol.
Here it is with my old desktop sitting in the corner. That desktop monitor is a 17 inch CRT, for comparison.

My friend Luke playing with my old desktop while I get used to Vista.
Internet's not hooked up yet coz the modem's XP installer and drivers don't work on Vista. The tech's coming over tomorrow sometime to fix it. I also got new speakers to replace my crappy dying old ones, and that was long overdue in itself.
I actually can't wait to work from home tomorrow night, what with this huge screen going easy on my eyes. I've been getting what I think is eyestrain from squinting at text for hours on end and it was starting to annoy / worry me. At any rate watching videos on it is just all sorts of awesome.
What this thing really is, is a bunch of desktop parts put together to form a very big, heavy laptop with some serious power at an unusually low price:
19 inch screen at 1440 x 900 pixel resolution
320 GB hard drive (pretty much the biggest hard drive you can get except for a VAIO that costs nearly $3,000 US)
Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo 2.0 Ghz
3 GB of RAM
Bluetooth, WiFi, USB 2.0, etc. etc.
