Re: Compare these setups . . .
I dunno they're kinda even. I mean sure the second has a slightly better CPU and a much better video card, but the first has more RAM, more HDD space, and the combo drive can play DVD's. Really, I would tell you to go with the second, but it depends on what you are gonna be doing. I mean if you need A LOT of HDD space, your gonna need the first setup's hdd, if you wanna play DVD's then you'll need the first, and the RAM is kinda hard to decide, I mean the 1GB is a lot better especially when playing games, but the good thing with ram is you can always upgrade and it's super easy to install, plus 512 I think would be good enough for the stuff your doing. I dunno it's kinda hard to decide, but I guess I'd go with the second.
