What have Dell done to the XPS range
No funky lights anymore!
Finally I get my hands on a budget, and an agreement for an uber laptop - and they don't do flashy lights on the XPS series anymore!
That was a great meeting with my Head :
Me: "Erm, I hate to be cheeky..."
Head: "I like cheeky, go ahead!"
Me: "Well I had a chat with the old DH and he said I could look into a superdooper laptop at the end of the financial year along with getting me a budget sorted to streamline operations... so too cheeky?!"
Head: "Why do you need one better than <STANDARD TEACHER TOSHIBA BOUGHT BY MY LEA PREDECESSOR>?"
Me: "Blah Blah Blah, Virtual Machines, Blah, Work from home, Blah"
Head: "OK, how much?"
Me: "Around £600/£700"
Head "Oh, that little? Go for a better one that'll last"
Me: <IN HEAD - WIN!>
The downside is I now have to buy all the bloody photocopier paper as well.
