Trying looking up Compaq Presario 906US..
I got it last December (December 22nd to be exact) so I know the price is under $1000.

It has:
1.33GHZ Athlon XP
20 Gig hd
256mb ram
16MB video ram (shared, you can up to 64)
CD Burner (24x) and a DVD Burner (24x) combo drive
Windows XP Home, but I installed Windows XP Pro

I would recommend that. Try looking up on the internet...
It don't have much ram, but oh well :P

I put it up to 64MB ram, and play America's Army ( look at screenshots) and I played that game ON My moniter, WITH a mouse and keyboard, and got the lowest (outside) of 8 FPS, with all settings on HIGH QUALITY. I also ran battlefield with no lag whats so ever.

It's a great computer, I like compaq and I have two of their computers now. My older one is still running awsome.

It's REALLY great for travelling!!

Go look into, I bought it at Circuit City for 1,299 but with a 200 dollar rebate so I payed $1,000 and I KNOW the price is lower now.

Good luck on your search!
