They have a DVD/CD-RW, a integrated wireless G/B, and 512 RAM upgrade. The DVD/CD-RW drive is another $25, the wireless is another $50, and the RAM is another $75. So, altogether another $150. One of the main reasons I want this is so I can be surfing the web while my brother plays a game on the desktop. Yes my current pc is pretty good (except the video card) and I would like to build one, but this would be a Christmas gift. The one I planned on building costs over $700, and I don't think I will get that much. And I can't ask for parts for it for Christmas, since they have no clue what I'm talking about. I'll see what they say, but my parents wanted to get me one for when I go to college (I'm a junior still, so I have 2 yrs) and since they are all going on sale, they figured they get me one now.
