It's just another PC. I can't comment on the price since here it's double what we pay for such. See http://www.compgeeks.com/details.asp?invtid=3005026&cat=SYS
Does anybody know anything about Fujitsu computers? They are a big company over here in Japan but I am not sure if they sell their computers back in the the U.S., or maybe they do but under a different name.
Anyway, my current computer is over 5 years old and is pretty much shot. Instead of trying to have it fixed and upgrade all the old components it would probably be better to just buy a new one.
I saw the following Fujitsu desktop in a computer store near my home as was just wondering if anybody thinks it's any good. I tried looking for a computer with similiar stuff on the CNET Product Reviews site but had no luck. So, I am going to try and include as much information as possible in this post and see what people think. I apologize in advance for the length.

Even though the there a few things that probably could be better (ie: (1) the primary cache is only 256, (2) the CPU is not Pentium 4 (3) The graphics card seems to be an intergrated one (4) the systems bus is not 400Mhz or above) is this a good deal or should I keep looking?
