OMG, out of those choices, PC#2 gets the vote from me. Love the RAM count, love the hard drive space, love Vista. Everything else is so-so. It gets the job done.

I personally wouldn't go for anything less than a Dual Core at this point in time now. That knocks the Pentium 4 HT out.

Yeah I think PC World are a rip-off, my PC would have cost at least 300 if I'd got all the parts from pc world. Thing is she got it about 1-2yrs ago so the hardware wd hav been mor expensive but I also didn't realise what a rip off they were.
