2169.00. add ~70 to this for the 512MB module you will be buying from crucial or somewhere else with a good rebate/deal going. if you want 1024 for some reason (diminishing returns...) then add about 150. add an extra 50 for a 60GB HDD if thats your bag. oh, if for some god-unknown reason you want a p4-m over a p4 2.8, then add that in...at a price.
so 2169. wow not too bad. i win.
