Damn, that seems like a great deal. Even includes 2GB of ram, that's incredible. Home Basic is a letdown, but Vista is a letdown in general as far as I am concerned. At this point at least.

Still, it kicks the ass off my laptop.

I suppose you can't argue with the price but the fact that it is still using a Core Duo and not a Core 2 is pretty upsetting but meh, $999 is $999.
