    Nope. If it were coming with Windows 2000, it'd be okay, but 256MB of RAM with XP is a no-go. It'll be irritatingly slow with anything. At least 512MB would be recommended.

    would it be worth it to get the 130$ version with the 512 mb ram, doubled hd and faster cpu then?

    Yes. If you can afford it,I recommend paying an extra $30 and upping the RAM to 1GB. But even otherwise, you'll be fine.

    hmm, doing all that would bring it pretty close to the 200$ mark.. so i might as well get the $199 version. but then, it wouldnt really be a budget pc lol

    anyways, thanks for your help rage
