That's pretty much what I'm looking to do. I don't need anything fancy. Maybe a GT210 or HD5450 card for around $15-20 after rebate.

Thanks for the info. Since it is PCI-e x16 slot, so can use video card with it?

TU OP and repped. It was time for me to upgrade my old Dell 9200 (running horrible Vista) which has become rather cranky lately.

What I do like about desktops is that they can be upgraded and modified, something which is difficult to do with laptops. So usually I am able to extend the life of my desktops to a certain extent.

Is the laptop worth it?

Shows up for me as $479.24 w/tax

Then I took a look at these two rebates (visa gift cards):

$100: Rebate Offer Number: 12-96392 (with a VALID STUDENT ID at Staples.com)

$100: Rebate Offer Number: 12-96391 (with a VALID STUDENT ID at Staples Stores Only)


So can I use both rebates without an issue? At $379 I'd rather spend $200 more to get an i-7.
I doubt it. If you read the coupon, it specifically excludes the $100 Student rebate.

Unless an in-store clerk slips up and puts on the rebate before reading/scanning the coupon, this is not going to work. If you can manage an instore clerk to scan the coupon and scan the $100 student rebate SKU, you would get this for $349+TAX but it would be a very very YMMV deal in that case.

The online rebate might be denied for using the coupon as it clearly states cannot be combined with the student rebate.

I have a core2duo 6670 that's overclocked to 3 GHz. would it be worth shelling $300. the only thing that i don't like about my computer is:
1) my memory is DDR2 speed (4GB)
2) my operating system is Xp which is ok, but my matlab and simulink apps crash it all the time
- i don't have time for games so video card wont matter.... any suggestions whether i should bite on this one?
According to CPU Benchmark [cpubenchmark.net] at stock speed (2.2GHz) your 6670 benches at 1469. Assuming perfect scaling to your 3GHz this would bench at 2003.
The 2120 in this deal benches is more than double that at 4222.
You will have to decide if doubling your CPU speed is worth $300 to you.
You will also be able to buy a cheap DDR3 8GB kit for this - previous poster mentioned that his came with a single 4G stick making 8GB upgrade even cheaper.

Does anyone know if its possible to upgrade the processor on this? I've been looking around for the motherboard in this thing but can't seem to find it anywhere.

Supposedly the drive is 7200rpm and the specs sheet is incorrect. No guarantee but it's most likely you'd get the faster drive. If you throw in a small SSD for the OS and just use the large drive for storage, 5400rpm would be fine for a HTPC.

That's wrong too.
This system can support AT LEAST 8GB. (Some have said it could even be 16GB.)

8 is guaranteed, however.

You should give the Intel HD2000 IGPU a shot first. Works just fine for every media rip I've thrown at it. Can also play my emulators just fine. IMO you're just wasting $, heat, electricity if you go to a low end discrete GPU

Umm, pray tell why do you need anything more than 5400 in a HTPC? ConfusedConfusedConfused

I threw a SSD in my HTPC and after a few days I promptly took it out, no need IMO.

Can this run dual monitors?
of course it can, since it uses cpu integrated video card, if you have two different size/ratio monitors, it may not be able to set each monitor resolution differently, use one resolution for both instead. Maybe intel already upgraded video driver to make it able to set each monitor resolution differently.

Wouldnt you prefer a 5400rpm drive for HTPC? (less heat, noise, power usage etc)

Of course 7200 drives typically outbech 5400 ones but the real world difference is not near what people think it to be.

Where does that say it? If so I'll buy one.. I found one store in my area that has it.
