Dell now has a perfectly functional configuration of their baseline Inspirion B130 for $485. It has a 1.6ghz Intel Celeron processor, 512mb memory, 40gb hard drive, CD-burning DVD-reading drive, wireless networking and Microsoft Works 8 (which does not include Wod). The "Celereon" processor is not the most powerful - though it will suffice for light use - but a 1.7ghz Pentium M is $530. Shipping is free. Sales tax is charged to most states.
