Finally time to dump my ancient WinME setup for a decent machine. Few questions just to get started -- what's new that I should make sure to get (so I don't need another upgrade in say 18 months)? Is hyperthreading or dual processors even worth looking into? I am looking into possibly subscribing to Bloomberg platform in the future -- I called their help desk and it didn't sound like you needed anything fancy, but any current users recommend the practical necessities? And 1 gig RAM enough? Or should I go for 2 or a machine at least capable of 2? Are USB keys useful? You can probably guess I'm just going down the dell menu, I'm pretty dumb about this so throw me a bone someone.
