Note with extremely over-inflated hard drives: Backing up that much data to
protect against drive crashes can become a fulltime occupation. I haven't
seen anything about including a DVD burner in this description. If you
expect to be filling up music / video / photos, you'll need one. I
personally distrust burners after my last batch destroyed nearly a third of
my photos when the burn bombed *after* I'd deleted the originals. My
favorite method of backing up data is creating a copy of a smaller drive
into a larger drive's folder, via network transportation. Slow, but
effective.

If you can swap the Works for Office, you'll be miles ahead when it comes to
college or business usage of your system.

3 or 4 year ONSITE NBD (next business day) is the best way to run. Hard
drives notoriously fail *once a year* until you get a good model installed.

I do have a dvd burner. Also I really don't need 250 gig of hard drive!!
But it came with it, I have an 160 gig hard drive ehre that I will keep for
back up. Things like pictures or mp3 (I have my entire CD collection on that
drive) that I don't want to loose. So I will keep those files and others on
two different hard drive.

Yes, but if you downgrade to a lower sized HDD, you can save some money by
*reducing* the gross pricetag of your system.

On an XP system? hmm... well, it's a bit outdated. Yes, it *may* work, but
so do Notepad and Wordpad. The lowest office version I'll work with is
2000.
