i'll actually probably buy it after i read some reviews and benchmarks on similar machines like mine, (but that option wasn't part of the poll, so...). Really though, i know i am going to be crammed using my 4200 rpm drive, and also only having 512 megs of ram, so an upgrade will be in order also before i buy it. unfortunately, i am student, and have to somehow come up with some summer savings in the next 20 days. ohh well!! DOOOM!!!
