I currently have an Dell Inspiron 6000...but it has a Celeron processor and I want to throw it out the window sometimes. It takes so much time to load when I turn it on...and its just not a good development machine. Its only got like 40 GB of HardDrive Space. Its got 1.5 Ghz and 504 Ram. I am looking for a faster better computer that I can remote desktop into my other Windows XP Pro SP2 development box if I need to.
There are so many choices...and I am not much of a hardware person. I am an independent contractor...so I don't have many people to ask about this. Can anyone recommend a Brand and machine requirements that are optimum for Web development? I plan on starting to use the Asp.net 3.5 framework soon.
BTW, does anyone know if Vista comes with IIS? and also Remote Desktop Services?
Thanks so much.
