4GB of RAM? Hello, bottleneck! More RAM means it's harder to locate things, and 4GB of RAM is the maximum supported by XP, which is lucky seeing as you've got Vista and I'm not sure what the max it supports is.

The CD/DVD drive is nothing special.

Vista Home Premium? That's a noob OS, you'll get laughed at for that. It's like XP Home with a stupid interface, and all the hardcore gamers and computer geeks had XP Pro. I got Vista Business for free off my CompSci department, and even it's lacking in features. If you want the very best, get Ultimate. At that kind of money, it's not going to make any difference.

I think you're just being blinded by big numbers and not stopping to take a closer look at things. You'd be better off doing a homebuild if you want the very best, and I know Dell's prices are dropping but you can still get better value elsewhere.
Most places now bundle Windows Vista with their computers anyway, unless you build it yourself. Looking at the comparison chart, I'd rather have Home Premium than Business. Vista mighn't have the features, or even work with anything >_>, but it's not that bad. Things will improve, I hope.

Do you have a clue what your talking about? DO you really know the difference between the versions?
For the majority of users Vista Home Premium willl do everything Ultimate will do. It's a waste of money to get anything more.

BTW - The Media Center application is awesome on Home Premium.

You have 4000 posts on here and your buying a dell? I'd see a doctor.

One problem I see is, places like that never specify what motherboard the computers running off... it could be crap.

Mobo's included under Dell's motherboards.

Nate, don't you want to build a custom one instead? I'd be willing to give you a hand.

The specs are good enough. It's just for future upgrades that the problem.
