If you’re looking for a new computer, you should wait another two weeks and then buy a Windows XP system from Dell. But if your budget simply requires a discount, look for cheap Pentium III systems for the next 60-90 days. Inventories are being cleared out and by the end of the year the only processors on the market will be the Celeron and the Pentium 4. Expect to pay $600-$850 for a well-equipped consumer PC with a 1GHz Pentium III processor. (The monitor probably won’t be included at that price, but you never know.) Here’s an article that describes the price cutting and gives some examples available now. Insight.com seems to get some particularly good remaindered deals.
