Its the HP way! Trust me, myself and a ton of my co-workers were just laid off so they could move even more operations out of the country and save a dime!
Years on Woot + no Barrels of Crud makes Zach a dull boy.

Yes, totally agree. The Lightscribe images don't come out all that dark or sharp. Better to get a color inkjet that prints CDs/DVDs and buy printable CDs/DVDs (don't buy the adhesive labels & stick them on yourself; they'll just ruin your discs after a while). I have an Epson Stylus Photo R280 that I just love for doing that.
Over 70 Woots since 2005 ... does that make me a Wootaholic?

In order to give an intelligent answer, you can help by telling a bit about what you hope to do with the computer.
For example, if you are doing word processing, email and light browsing, almost anything will do. If you are going to watch online video, edit video or still images, then you need a bit more power (and this unit may be good for some, but perhaps not the video editing). If you are an extreme gamer, then you need a pretty hopped-up unit.
Anyone who simply tells you what to buy without asking these basic questions is not being helpful. Good luck!
