How hard is it to take that desktop back to Windows XP? Is that even possible (I have an extra, never installed copy still).
That machine is pretty appealing to replace my wife's 5 year old desktop (possibly a latitude?). She's a general internet & word processor user. The only thing out of the norm that she does is lots of pdf & spreadsheet work (works from home on insurance filings). Nothing like video or graphics editing (and no gaming for sure). Her current computer has never had a problem with the heavy lifting on those spreadsheets/pdfs. What do you guys think of going with the $250 model above or that $379 660s deal out there as well. Of course the $379 is a better system...but also 50% more!
The $250 model can handle your wife's tasks just fine. Yes, the $379 system is more capable but unless your wife is using that capability, it's a waste of money.
No one has posted it, I think. Another (I hope different) 8500 deal has just shown up, mixed in with all this mess. Basically they took the i5 8500 deal for $699, and upgraded it to the I7 8500 deal with a $100 discount! It looks like it has 2 more hours to run. http://configure.us.dell.com/dell...P11p&s=dhs
I still hope the SE 8500 for 8pm, EST - will be a good deal (I hope!) - All I want is a look at it. Don't get your hopes up too much.
