Bought this computer for a family member who was low on funds. It can handle internet stuff and HD video, not a gaming PC. It comes with XP Pro and the units are refurbished. It was $118, but it's now down to $99. If you have a crappy older computer this can be a huge upgrade for cheap.

The only downside is that it doesn't come with an image drive. It's low powered so I doubt you could put a decent graphics card in it.

There's a free Linksys wireless N router included with it now too. I ordered it. My parents were thinking of a Boxee or Roku and this will do all that and more. I like the form factor, even though it's bigger than those things. Should fit nicely where a tuner should go in their entertainment center.

Wow, that changed fast! It's back up to $118 with the free router. Still a good deal.

Damn, it's $130 now. Sent someone the link and they were bumbed.

Newegg rocks. I ordered just after 2pm on Thursday and got the router less than 24 hours later at about 11am. Computer's not scheduled for delivery until Monday though. I did the free shipping trial thing.
