I would recomend the 30$ upgrade. A few months ago I saw that computer at Best buy when I went ot buy mine. I haven't had any problems with Best buy, some of their prices to are actually quite good. And most of the people working there are usually pretty smart and cna anwser your questions truthfully. I would ask if you're going to buy it what socket the motherboard is? 754 or 939. 939 would be better since later on you could upgrade it to a Athlon 64, an Athlon FX or even an Opteron. The 6100 is intergrated but for casual web surfing, email and movies, it'd be a good system. The 9 in 1 media reader is a little thing, it'll probably be on the front, it's for all sort of small media storage system.s Like Compact Flash, Smart media card, MMC or SD, Memory sticks, ect.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
