I recently bought the HP a1520n desktop from Boxing day sale. What do you guys think? Honest opinions, whether negative or positive, are appreciated because I may return it. The Bundle I got included a MAG 19" widescreen monitor and HP a1520n for about $600 USD. I might return the monitor since my sister bought a Toshiba 20DL76 that has port to connect it to a PC. Please discuss.

I like it. Would be bad for games though because of the graphics.

Edit: Ya I'm pretty disappointed in how much I paid for this system a year ago.

Pentium 4 processor 2.8Ghz, 1mb L2 cache

512 DDr ram

cd rom drive, and cd rom/cd burner drive combo

80 gig ATA hard drive

Integrated Graphics

15" screen.
This system cost me almost 750$. Wish I would of known as much about computers then as I do now. Also if I would of waited a bit longer things got better/cheaper, but I guess thats how technology is.
