    If or when you buy, make sure you order the Dell Recovery disk ('s).

    That would be your choice overall. What will you be using the computer for? Casual surfing..video editing? Have you considered building your own system?

    I was going to use it for assignments mostly ( photo editing movie editing, Word office essays, bit of gaming like World of warcraft ect ) and the reason i went for this is that i can pay it monthly directly from the store (Easy payment).
