There’s good reasons to spend a bit extra on a Dell computer – better quality, better support, and better software choices (including Microsoft Office XP and a free upgrade to Windows XP). But if you’re on a budget, there’s wonderful deals out there. The latest one to catch my eye is this HP Brio system – $499 for a Celeron 733 processor, 20GB hard drive, and CD-RW. No monitor included. Only 64Mb of RAM, but memory is dirt cheap and easy to install. Tempting, eh?
