No I'm not kidding. This is not "It doesn't play the absolutely latest games". This is not "It's out of style" This is not "I did something stupid and broke it". This is "my current computer is five-year-old shit that's falling apart". I'm talking Athlon XP and GeForce4 IGP old, and it's got issues.[/p] While a laptop would be nice, I'm most likely to get way more power for the little money I have out of a desktop (since all I need is the tower). I am willing to order online (of course), and I'm aware I will most likely be getting something used/refurbished. Here I'll list what I'm considering. Full-size, C2D, 2Gb RAM http://cgi.ebay.com/160552675072 No harddrive/OS, but considering with the money saved I could buy a harddrive for it and just move over my wireless card and such, this appeals to me a lot. Slimline, C2D E4400, 2GB DDR2, looks like a very knowledgeable seller. http://cgi.ebay.com/380321539733 Looks like I'd need an external enclosure to use my second harddrive with this one... Though it does have a PCi-E slot so I might be able to pick up a cheap half-height low-end video card in the future and game for once... I've ordered the first since it's the best bang for the price I've found, and the ability to upgrade is important.
