thanks guys. to clarify, there's no question of me building my own computer. whether or not i can get a better deal the research is just not worth it to me. on my current computer i managed to erase the drivers and the simple act of fixing that is more trouble than its worth.
what i want to do is surf online, maybe with 2 browsers open with 3 tabs each, play a movie in the background, and have excel and word open. can this handle that?
so if anyone could shed any light on the E part of the E2200 i'd be grateful.
i wasnt aware dual core doesnt mean you can add speeds together. what about core 2 duo, in that case can you add speeds?
i said above i'll be using different processes, ie browsers, videos, office. will the dual core therefore breakup the operations over the 2 chips and i'll be at a faster speed?
if any of you could give me an approximate price you think this is worth that'd be really helpful. nothing is exact of course, im just getting a good deal (i think) on this and want to make sure it is indeed a good deal. i'll tell you the price after you tell me what you think it should be
