My neighbor recently offered to sell us a new computer for 800 dollars.
And I was wondering how much of a deal it is, to me it seems great, the only thing that is really bad is a single core processor AMD 64 processor, I don't remember exact specs but I know it had a gig of ram 200 gig hard drive(most likely 7200 rpm) a nineteen inch monitor a card reader and the basic hardware ( Mouse ,Speakers blah blah). I then got on gateways websight and made another for about 800 bucks. For the most park it sucks
Processor:Core Two Duo 1.86GHz 1066MHz. RAM:512MB dual-channel. Hard Drive160GB 7200rpm Card Reader 15 inch monitor
^ This one basically sucks compared to the other in all but the processor field, My question is, how big a deal is that Core 2 Duo as compared to the single core ? Is there somewhere else I can go and get the get better specs for $800?
