better than AMD 3250e 1.5 GHz?
I've been eyeing this APU for an htpc build for a while.

Just saw an AMD Dual Core 3250e 1.5 GHz Dell Zino HD pop up on my local CL...I could get that for $175, but it's only got 3GB DDR2 RAM (which is mad expensive if I wanted to up it). and the GPU is a Radeon 4330 (I believe w/ 512mb discrete mem).

How would this compare? If I got the Zino I wouldn't have to get a case or PSU, though I might have to get more/expensive RAM. I could get 8GB DDR3 for the E-350 for like $40.

My other option was the A4 3400 Llano combo that showed up the other day. That wouldn't be as small, or as silent, or as energy efficient....but cheaper!

Also, does anyone know what the difference is between this 350D CPU and the regular E-350?

Thanks!
