I agree, 100$ is very good for that, I mean 512 memory is very good for 20gb HDD, Intel Celeron 2.4ghz, pretty good, but it would be worth spending however much on a 80/100 HDD, I can get them for free

Yes, definitely worth it.

Don't worry about the HDD. Just make sure you defragment and clean your disk frequently. You might find yourself writing some stuff to CD's or DVD's, but unless that's a problem, it shouldn't be a problem.

the hard drive will be good for now, unless you download tons of music or have tons of programs to install, 20 gb will be plenty for you for the time being.

Yes I agree, if you stick with th 20gb, don't download shi* just keep it to the bare minimum, or buy a 40gb and use both together.....
