    You are right. I have the 2.93ghz version, and it is indeed a speed demon.

    A dual core is indeed the way to go. It's designed for MULTI-TASKING and that's what most users do : different jobs at the same time. In the past, when I was still using scanners, I didn't even notice that my scanner was running, while I was doing something else. My previous computer was suddenly much slower, when a scanner started.

    Dankuwel = Dank U wel = "Thank you very much." Something like "Merci beaucoup".

    Dank = Thank
    U = You
    wel = very much.

    We, Belgian people, need less words than American people. That's why American people use so many abbreviations to say it shorter.

    Thank you both :)
    "Zo ziet een tweede harde schijf eruit" was translated accurately (Dutch to English, Spanish isn't available). It seems that "Dankuwel" is a abbreviation, right?

    Not really an abbreviation, it's a contraction of three words Dank+U+Wel, but the word "Dankuwel" also exists in Dutch. Google with dankuwel and you will find it.

    Danku also exists = "Thank you". "U" is more polite than "je" in Dutch. You use "U" when you talk to a stranger.
    "Je" is used when you are familiar with the person, like family members or friends.

    So "dankuwel" and "dankjewel" are the same. Of course nobody cares about that anymore nowadays.

    Thanks Erik :thumb:
    It seems that Dutch has some similarities with English.

    Yes "water" means "water" in Dutch, so you won't be thirsty in Belgium. Bier = beer.
