bnoth machines are configured similarly. dell 8000 series dimension. ibm s50 i think. both 3.2 ghz, 1gig ram, 17 inch flat screen lcd monitors. the dell is a dell monitor where as the ibm is a samsung syncmaster 17 inch. ibm is 40gigs storage, the dell is 80 both have xp pro. ok i cant decide. the dell will cost me around 1050 after 10 percent off and a 200 rebate. the ibm is about 1300-1350 all together. is it worth the extra money?
