Re: Is this a good deal?

Intel is better but AMD will always be cheaper and, for most daily tasks, you won't know the difference. I suspect you would mostly use it for surfing the net, encoding music and torrenting, watching netflix, youtube, email, etc... right? If you aren't encoding video or anything heavy like that, I doubt you'll notice the difference between an AMD and an Intel processor.

The price is good, to me, for what is listed.

I don;t see the Operating System, though. Windows 7?

Windows 7....won't even be doing netflix...for another $39 I could have had an extra video card...not much into video.
