    Default got a great, cheap computer ...

    I recently took advantage of the Labor Day "madness" and bought a Compaq SR1910NX at COMP USA. From $399, it went to $179 after rebates (which I already sent!). I finished removing all of the "crap" (I can say this word herein the cafe, right?) that they install on it, and put a fresh copy of WinXP Pro. After loading the right drivers, it works beautiful. It replaces an older PC for my wife and it is not only pretty fast for anything she would want, but "extremely" quiet, but has tons of USB 2.0 ports, 100GB SATA drive, built-in audio, and built-in 10/100 Ethernet (as well as 56K modem that I ripped off as soon as I openned the case!) => everything a PC should have

    Super value at a super low price

    Depending on your specific applications, there are definitely some good deals out there if one is a wise consumer and patient!!

    ...except that your version is much cooler. IMHO, of course.

    You turn them into wonderful hot rods and then only use them on the weekends?
