    But it's a Dell. I'd rather have an eMachine at that price point, because they don't get all pissy if you upgrade the hardware.

    or use the small form factor PC as an HTPC and use the monitor to upgrade your primary computer monitor

    I've got plenty of dells at work, I've yet to have a problem upgrading them. Maybe 6 years ago, but on systems that are only a couple of years old have been a snap.

    I think he was more referring to them getting upset if it breaks and you have upgraded some hardware

    but yes, Dell's internals are very simple and easy to work with, they do it for ease of manufacturing

    Hey thanks! i just ordered this. My 5 or 6 year old Free clone PC died on Friday.

    i didn't see on the site if the monitor hooks up with VGA or DVI?

    suppose i could buy a video card when i update the ram and harddrive.

    possibly, being a small form factor PC it may actually use a laptop drive

    My mother has that printer. Good damn thing, it prints fast and cranks out nice 4x6 photos to boot. Oh, and you gotta love the six separate ink tanks.
