@Profdlp, I will someday. For now it was only supposed to be about $100 sweet 16 present. Besides, she doesn't do anywhere near the heavy computer use I used to do to that thing. Ie, some mornings I'd be itching to get a cd burned as fast as (was) possible to listen to on the way to school... Now she's got a brand new iPod. And no one else in my family understands anything about burning DVDs. It's just so they can install programs from discs like Office, Norton, etc. without me having to do it for them thru USB.
As for the HDD, I'm just lazy. I've got to post a pic about how this thing is actually situated inside the 2300 Dimension. It's standing straight up against the front panel, secured in it's own aluminum nook, with more green plastic covers. In other words, seems impossible to get out. I'll leave that for when I need to. Or if she ever does want a bigger HDD, but doubtful.
Also I should mention that she has a tablet through the high school, but they don't get to keep them for summer. Besides that, they are so locked down it's crazy. They are preloaded with iTunes and WMP is enabled, they are "allowed" to connect & sync an mp3 player, BUT not able to install the slightest thing. So, she can't even install the iPod software to let the computer recognize it. So music life, YouTube, and better speakers, is what keeps her using the 2300 Dimension.
