Dual Core 1.6+
WIN XP (prefered)
then after that just cheap.
So far the best model I found was this...http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6759745&Sku=H24-15190
for $400 I could downgrade
For any advice thanks very much.
Thats a good choice if all your going for is cheap cheap and your not willing to spend anymore. It has Windows 7 Pro so you can use Windows XP mode if you really need it.
If you don't need Windows XP mode: For $20 more its worth getting this: 1620342 www.bestbuy.com $449.99. A hard drive increase and a RAM increase.
But I especially love this one, mainly for its Solid State mechanical Hybrid Drive: 1769288 www.bestbuy.com $479.99. Slightly better processor too.
