Need a New Computer?

This caught my eye while going through the Costco circular. I’m going to buy gum, croissants, and orange juice, but they have this deal for $999.99: an HP desktop with quad-core Phenom (2.93 GHz), 8GB of RAM, a 1.5 TB hard drive, DVD-RW drive, 802.11b/g/n wireless, and a pair of 23″ 1920×1080 LCDs. Gamers, the graphics card is a Radeon HD 6450 (512MB). Windows 7 Home Premium, though I’m sure it would run Fedora swimmingly as well 😉 Sadly, they chose a 5400rpm hard drive, ensuring that disk I/O will forever be your bottleneck.
