    If anyone is in need of an inexpensive computer, here is one hell of a deal.

    Slickdeals


    Dell

    Dell Home has the Dimension 2400 2.4GHz Celeron Desktop for $200. You'll have to buy 2 to get free shipping. Decent system for the parents & relatives. Thanks bluedevils.

    2. Select the "No monitor [subtract $50]" option.
    3. Add to cart.
    4. Remove the printer by changing the qty for the system to 5 and update total. The printer will be gone and you can change the qty back.

    Jerry,
    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 $0.02

    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.
