  1. Dell Deminsion 4600, P4, 2GHz,DDR w 19" Gateway FPD 1960 monitor,80-GB HD, XP-Pro, 256MB Geforce FX-5500 8xAGP video card, Cr-RW Drive, DVdcd/rw drive. $200.00

    Should I buy? I am an average daily computer user, no intense gaming. Just general use. It has XP-Pro with the option of installing a copy of Vista. THIS COMPUTER IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE, so there is no point in continuing this thread. Thank you to all. 4-3-2007

    Has a few weak spots, such as:
    Vista installed, very sub par for that OS.
    8g HDD.
    Price is good (IMHO) & the weak parts are easily upgraded.
    Will this come with Vista Certificate of Authenticity (COA) lic. key?
    if not insist on xp pro w/ Certificate of Authenticity (COA) lic. key,
    then I'd call it a good deal.

    G'Luck!

    What :confused: ?

    Anyway, the hard drive is very, very small, even for a normal user. Otherwise, it seems okay.

    BTW, it's impossible to have Vista on an 8gb hard drive :( .

    Did I misunderstand "Win:Vista"?

    Yeah, it uses almost 15GB of space. XP rocks :)

    I think he meant 8GB DVD instead of DHD. That doesn't make much sense either, but I think it is more likely than an 8GB HD.

    That does make more sense...

    i think he hit the '-' key instead of the '0' so i think its a 80GB hd

    a bit on the small side.

    For a day to day system $200 is a good price.

    Needs some major upgrades. CPU is slow, small amount of memory, bad videocard, and worst of all it has Vista.

    But what is the intended use? Home PCs dont need a good video card, or CPU, and with the 19" monitor I would say it is a good deal.

    But I am totally with you with the Vista thing.
