yo man, to rip off something someone else said in another post, Dell laptops and LCD monitors are actually quite good because they don't actually produce them

Their desktops blow balls though. The specs on that Dell and the price tag beats anything else available out there!

and... for the same price of $850, you are getting an 8600GT graphics card over the 8400GS and a Core 2 Duo over the Turion... you'd be insane to go for that Acer...
