So let me state first off, this computer is for my girlfriends mom not myself. Idea was for a 700ish for a computer including monitor. Ended up finding bestbuy has a package deal on some desktops right now AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 dual-core processor 5000+, 3GB DDR2 memory; Windows Vista Home Premium, double-layer DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with Labelflash, 400GB hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE graphics and 15-in-1 media manager 17" widescreen flat-panel LCD monitor with ultrafast 8 ms response time and antiglare screen treatment; tiltable stand, or wall-mountable with optional kit (not included) Canon PIXMA all-in-one photo printer, copier and scanner with ChromaLife100 and dual color gamut technologies Save $150! (Reg. price $829.97 - $150 total bundle instant savings = $679.97) So we got this computer, but with a 19 inch lcd Total price 709.97 (no tax Oregon FTW) The processor is kinda meh but it for this price it actually had a nice printer and a nice gateway LCD. Short of buying a Dell I dont know what else I could have found. Also had a video card that I think isnt intergrated but I'm really not sure. My question is whether or not with vista this machine will have any staying power for what it is or If I should have just had her get hp or gateway laptop?
