Acer Aspire L310

I found this on sale for $175. I already have a laptop and just want a "desktop" for general purposes. Is this a good deal?

Windows Vista OS
Intel Celeron D352 CPU
Slot-in DVD RW Optical

That's an unhappy thing.

It has no dual core CPU and the 2GB RAM you want to see Vista work well. I'd not waste my money.

Some advice

In reply to: Acer Aspire L310

I think you will regret buying it. It would of been a different story a few years ago, but with the current technological advances and higher-end multi-core CPUs becoming increasingly cheaper, you might think twice about acquiring a system that is quite inferior to today's standards.

But if you intend to stick with XP or use a Linux distribution that utilises low-end hardware, then the PC might get the job done. But if you want Vista, even basic, it will be a constant struggle. And with the ridiculously low amount of RAM, working with multiple apps is going to slow things down a lot.
