    Post Is this a good system

    I saw this system and was wondering if it was good for the price.

    That looks like a very good deal.

    anyone taken a look at the 81.5 GB Hard Drive on this same page? bet you could fit enough music on there to listen to a full years worth, dont know that theres even that much music out ther, but its still kidna crazy. I got a 15GB and I still have 5Gb left w/ 2500 songs. But anyway, just thought id toss that out

    I don't wanna say that i know this for sure, but that looks like an emachine to me, and if it is i'd steer clear of it.

    I'd keep away from this system for a couple reasons... Video,sound, and maybe modem are integrated and a few of the parts are refurbished. If you are looking to spend only a few hundred then buy it, but remember you usually get what you pay for. I would recommend going to pricewatch.com and finding parts you want and building one your self. Its usually cheaper and you get what you want. You built your player so I am sure you can build a computer. Good luck!

    LOL...
    I am trying to figure out why "No front Bezel" is a feature (trying to disguise the mfg?), and how a 466mhz + 64mb ram qualifies it as "Made For The Geek Who Wants LOTS OF POWER". Though the price isn't bad if you don't mind not knowing what's in the box...
