Default Dell?

At dell.com they have a refurbished section called dell outlet. I brought my computer and saw they still had more, Here are the specs.

(3.4ghz w/HT)
(512mb ram)
(80 Gig Hard Drive)
(Radeon x300 graphics)
(Floppy)
(2 drives: dvd dual layer burner+dvd cd-rom)
(Sound Blaster Audigy 2 Sound Card)
(Alot of software)

All for $800 shipped to Hawaii overnight and with 4 year accidental full warranty. The only things is the monitor and I know you can get one somewhere else. This isin't much but a great computer for a great price, not to mention the warranty. Plus you can always upgrade later, it will save you a lot of money.
