I was trolling the dell outlet and they had som sub $500 inspirons with HDMI out.
The desktop now gets used for e-mail, web and playing TV shows and movies onto the TV. Playback of 720p downloads are stuttery and kill the playback.
Thats due to who knows what- bad download, dying power supply, bad gfx card (8600 gt?)
In any event, as long as it won't have issues with video playback I think I'll be good with a ne of these dells
