Huh? I can only spend as much money as I have. Why do you think I was
asking for a good system in the $400 price range?
I don't think you've been paying attention. I don't *need* a new
system. I have perfectly adequate systems running linux. My cygwin
system is also perfectly adequate for everything but checking this
When I was asking for feedback on a $400 system, I meant that I wanted a
system that was actually usable. A system without a hard drive is not
usable. Suggesting another $186 worth of improvements after I had
mentioned my price limitations isn't really very helpful.
