Thats a decent purchase, I wouldn't say you got ripped off, or that you found the buy of a century.

A very similar deal was on woot.com yesterday.
Yeah, it's a good deal. Pentium 4 gets hot, and is not a powerhorse (at least not anymore)
but it still has hyper threading, so it's still really good for basic web browsing and word processing. Maybe even HTPC.
won't recommend as a main computer, though.

Well I guess that could be a good buy, but you are already out of date with everything.
