Mine is a Seagate Barracuda 40Gig 7200 RPM.
Oh and what brand is there CD/dvd burners....oh wait you still cant tell me so how do i know it will work with the software that i use?
I wouldn't buy that kind of equipment from Dell because they gouge the hell out of their accessories prices.
Dell is good for the every day joe blow that doesnt that buys a new computer 1 time every two years, but me i use my stuff after i upgrade, whens the last time you heard some one boasting about WOW LOOK HOW GOOD MY TEMPS ARE ON MY DELL, nope sorry just doesnt happen, Dells are for the person that is a end user and has no idea wtf is going on inside there PC, and if you like Dell more power to you, but me personal i build my own i like gettin more bang for my buck.
I have always built my own computers, and used AMD processors, however when I saw the PE400SC on Dell's SB site for $539 shipped, equipped with P4 3.2G processor, 40Gig HD, and Intel i875P motherboard, I had to buy it. Hell the Processor alone is $600+, I added my video card, cd/rw and dvd player, a Gig or ram and my 80 GIG hd with Slack, and fired it up. Only bad part about the machine is the bios recognizes the DDR433 memory as DDR333, but they are working on a bios update for that problem.
