Default Dell Vs. HP....

I have always used Dell computers; however, I have noticed that CompUSA sells HP, and that you can get better or similar deals out of them. Could you rate DELL vs. HP? I've seen about the same config with Intel P4 3.8 Ghz but HP seems cheaper.

Default Um...

I have a friend that has an HP setup. Came with everything. He got it from Wal-Mart for around 6 bills. Nice as far as that sort of thing goes but you have to bear in mind with Microsoft jerking around the likes of Dell/HP. you have any problems with xp and have to reload it you have to buy a new xp cd from the maker of your system. And that sucks a big one. Instant BS just add Bill Gates.
You'll be better off building your own system. Get an OEM copy of xp. It's cheaper...

I will use it like a home- home business PC, but I also would love to be able to hook up a nice sound system for music, and some toys like DVD/RW. I've figured that XP is not the real problem but there are others like Norton Security, Money, MS office, Acrobat, that come with build up systems; these I'm using now, and I think I will need them. Have a P3 laptop now, but I'm getting sick out of it (three years old) my budget? I figure don't want to spend more than 1.8K.

I'm not kidding; I just need to figure out how can I get the best deal. Dell seems to offer you a complete package; can you get something like that cheaper? http://configure.us.dell.com/dellsto...oc=D84F3&s=dhs
