I mentioned in the recent new PC thread we got the older kids a new PC. We just watched the ads and stuff for the best deal and pounced. $329 total (including 8.2% sales tax): ACER made in China (of course) AMD Sempron 3200+ (please talk to me about this processor - no thought of AMD vs.INTC went into the purchasing process - it's a cheap PC and my old AMD seems to be great) 512MB Ram - seems to be fine Win XP Home and a few other software titles, NAV, etc CD-DVD R/W 17" LCD Monitor (pretty nice IMHO) Excellent multi memory/media card reader (I want this!!! The usual LAN etc built in And best of all? The puppy is SOOOOO quiet. Amazing. Seems REALLY fast for built in graphics. I'd say an OK bargain from the usually crappy Circuit City.
