# Processor: AMD Sempron 3400+ - Quite an old processor
# RAM: 512MB DDR2-533MHz - Quite a low amount of ram for running XP and if you plan to use vista then forget it on this amount.
# Hard Drive: 120GB - The norm at this price point
# Screen: 17" Widescreen TFT - if you are aiming to use this for travelling think again. My 15.4inch laptop is a pain to move about as it weighs a lot so the extra on a 17inch will be a lot.
# Graphics: NVidia GeForce Go6100 - don't expect any gaming performance with this card, or video editing. It will play old games or just get used to render windows.
# Wireless LAN: 802.11b/g - Call for advice on Wireless Networking
# Battery Life : 2.5 hours - This will equate to about 1.5hrs usage in real life.
You never said what the budget was nor what you plan to use the machine for. If you can tell us these things we should be able to compare and contrast with other machines in your budget.
