I was at my local best buy with my son the other day just to kill some time and look around, and saw one of these up on display. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage...ategoryId=pcmcat103700050022&id=1166236072160 It really caught my attention because at that price point it has alot of neat "toys" on it. I was going to buy a notebook from powernotebooks.com most probably so I can cut corners and save money by not buying an OS and stuff like that, also its abit cheaper. However I can not configure anything even close to this so was wondering if you guys thought it was a good deal. The deal is sweetened because its "open box" so you get 150$ cash back on it. So whats special? Well it has alot of stuff on the interface, HDMI, S-Video ect. HDMI is pretty fancy. It has a HD DVD player on it wich is worth probably 200$ on its own easy (cheapest hd dvd player I have found is the Xbox 360 one) It comes with Vista Ultimate wich is very expensive (even tho honestly ultimate would be a waist and home premium is just fine) All your wireless needs, and even a TV tuner. 2gb of ram, and a nice big hdd. Only major flaw is the video card is a big letdown for a system of this quality, not sure if it could be upgraded to a better one or not. So given the "toys" and there respective cost, do you guys think this is a good deal?? Id love to have a hd-dvd player, and also this would take care of my vista purchase (pretty sure I can use it on my desktop) Im open for sugjestions on similar products from other companies/retialers aswell. Thanks guys.
