This price must be reduced. The PC is for a non-profit, to run office
applications. It will never run difficult games, movies or TV, but it
will drive a 19-21" monitor at high resolutions. A smaller hard drive
and integrated video would cut $130. If anyone on the list runs WinXP
with a small hard drive (40GB) and with "onboard" or "integrated"
video and would care to comment on those choices, I'd appreciate it.
