I'm just shocked how Dell can even make a complete system that cheap!!! I tried configuring that on my own to try to meet Dell's specs. No luck. I go over every time.

I don't understand how Black Friday got it's name. I was watching the news last night and they kept mentioning that. They did mention a bunch of places with $300 PCs. Walmart and Best Buy have them available. Bare minimum PCs.
