It was about 750 bucks in a box ready to go. Why the move to more RAM?
They have the 1.8GHz, 512MB and it's quite nice.
Ok, so after looking over so many reviews and taking my budget into account, I decided to go with the Compaq Presario V2000Z. Now, I don't know about what kind of configurations...speed, memory, etc.? So, help! Please. Mostly, I only need it for Word Processor, PowerPoint, and to lug around school n'work (email and word processor). Here are the configurations I'm thinking... do I need less or more of something??? Especially about Memory (512 Vs 1.0 GB... 2x512 or 1x1024) and processor (1.8 GHz vs 2.0) and speed. Remember, I want to keep cost low. Any help will be greatly appreciated from this ClueLess Buyer! =)
