512 is fairly average, going by that eopinions review I would say go for it and upgrade if you wish.

Well then 512MB RAM should be fine for you, photo manipulations might work on integrated graphics which is what I would assume an HP would have, if not most of them come with AGP Slots that you could easily buy a new video card for it.

Yoda333 if you are looking for a better and cheaper computer go check out www.dunits.com. They have a 2.8ghz for $560 and it's got Hyper Threading and a 120GB HD. Their computers are very reliable.
