Greetings;

Looking for a cheap computer to: A) watch internet video - ABC, CBS etc, and Netflix; and B) serve as my digital music library which will be connected to my stereo.

These are the two systems I'm looking at - any thoughts?

Thanks in advance

Kelly

I'd also go with the 2nd one, has a fater processor, and an intel GMA 4500 over the 1st one that has a Intel GMA 3000 and a slower processor.
