Yeah, it's a good cheap computer, but remember you are getting what you pay for.
also keep in mind Intel Celerons are horrible processors. I think they were described as a "suped up Pentium II" by an IT friend of mine. I have had nothing but problems with them at work, and they tend to be slower and run hotter (remember, heat is bad in computer world) than their higher quality brothers. something to keep in mind.
if you want a cheap computer, this looks like a good deal. It won't be top of the line, and it won't be lightning fast. but if you won't be running more than one app at a time, or doing any heavy work on your computer, this might be a good deal.
just my $0.02If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

You needed to look at the deal a little closer then. It is a socket 478, hence it could be upgraded with a Pentium IV and more memory to make it a screamer for under $300. I think it has expired since my post.
