    I turn to the 12oz think tank to tell me which one of these computers is better.
    (well a better value I suppose) clearly one is a bit cheaper, but it also seems to have more goods)
    Obviously one has a dvd and the other does not... but really get down to the nitty gritty ok?
    ever heard of this make before?

    keep in it's mostly going to be a media center for video and audio, as opposed to a working cpu.

    The cheapest computers for the best price I've ever seen are from Dell. Watch www.gotapex.com for GREAT deals. They had a computer with a 15" flat screen monitor ($400 value) with free shipping for like $500 and something a few weeks back...
    Keep watching that website. Dell rocks...

    Your best bet would be to build your own. So easy, so much cheaper, and you know exactly whats going into your computer. If you're really opposed to that, go with B over A. Your going to be kicking yourself in the balls for getting 256mb of ram, as found in A. Also, stay the hell away from Dells. Terrible customer service and overpriced computers = terrible+1. My job is selling computers...listen to me/tesser/glik since we're all very, very big nerds
