Good Buy?



I know nothing about Linux OS.
Does anyone know if THIS
would be a good deal?

Linux takes some time and effort to learn. I think it is a little like buying a car with a manual transmission, if you only know how to drive an automatic--the stick shift may be cheaper, but you commit yourself to learning how to drive with it.

You are used to using Windows software programs--they aren't made for Linux.

If you want to be able to use your familiar Windows programs, one of our people who knows Operating Systems better than I might advise you whether you might put some version of Windows onto it instead.

When I didn't see some reactions here for a while, O DeWitch, it ocurred to me that our friends overseas wouldn't be familiar with US prices unless they did some research (and price is a major component of a "good deal.";))

I believe it is a low price for a laptop. Can anyone address the more general question, does it sound like a good system? Is the brand a good one? Are the specs good? What would a person have to buy, in addition to what comes with the system?:)waveysmiley
