what do you guys think of this pc?

I basically just need internet, online poker, and photoshop type stuff. I don't play many games, if at all.

The Media Center Edition XP seems pretty cool

doesn't seem like a bad deal for $415

also, what do you guys think of that Mac Mini? I mean as small as it is, it would be great for space, but what about everything else? Can I use my mouse, keyboard, and monitor or would I have to switch everything to Mac stuff?

thanks

For what you want that computer for, it would be perfect imo.
Not a bad price at all.

I can only assume it is a tower though, I'd like to have something smaller. I am somewhat limited on space and need two of them right next to each other

thats a hell of a deal though

I like the smaller one, i think that's a hell of a deal, my bro paid 1500 from alienware for a athlon 2800+ like a year and a half ago, nowhere near the hd capacity either, if your looking for something will do everything your looking for i would look no further.

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
