$437 Estimated Overall Price
* All prices are approximations and are listed in $USD for simplicity.

Notes: We've adjusted prices a bit and as you can see here the budget system is a lot leaner now. We chose an Intel Celeron D processor instead of an AMD alternative so if you choose to upgrade you can pick up an Intel Core 2 Duo in the future. This machine is decent for workstation or home type computer tasks and it's good for those students going back to school in the fall.
