So according to the Acer support website it is listed as RC500 but I cannot find any specifications for it, So I will ring and see if they can help me..

SP2... You only have about 30-45 minutes of downloading/installing SP3...and then another 100 or so updates after that.

Looks like a solid XP machine though. If you had some old RAM laying around to bump it up to 1-2GB it would be a great word processor/internet browser as long as you keep it light and streamlined.
