Probably the only 3-core machine ever to come in my house, I named it Trine*. It is also the first time I buy a desktop computer that is actually a little weaker than my main computer. It is meant to replace the old computer that expired (well past its warranty) and that used to sit under the desk beside my main computer and do other things (mostly playing Sims 2 - I do in fact have a whole Sims neighborhood named Laissez-Faire. This will surprise very few readers).
* "Trine" is a woman's name in Norway, and despite its mostly angular features, I have had a feminine vibe from it virtually from the start. Also, the name is shorter than Triceratops.
I took it on the bus home. Coming home, I pondered the possibility of not heating the house this winter, but instead just carry a computer around from time to time.
Trine is currently in the icy cold living room sweating out the "new computer" smell while installing Sims 2. To be continued, I hope.
