The computer arrived at the store for pick up today and is now sitting on my desk. I am very satisfied with weight and build quality.
One concern though is how much preloaded stuff came on it. Does anyone have advice for how I should go about deleting the things I don't need, in addition to figuring out what exactly it is I don't need?
Unfortunately I do not have disks for the operating system, so I cannot wipe the harddrive and start over. I did a quick google search and read an article on digg about http://www.pcdecrapifier.com/
. This seems to be exactly what I need, but I am a little hesitant about downloading the first program I find of google and running it, particulary as I do not have much virus-protection running yet.
