Hey, We are thinking of getting my mother a new PC in the next few weeks. I have been looking in the weekend papers for deals and almost all of them are the "rebate" deals, which I don't like. All I am looking for is a BASIC PC that has a monitor, speakers and the usual stuff. Nothing fancy here. My mother wouldn't know the difference between a Hard Drive and a floppy drive. She just needs to be able to connect via cable modem, send and receive email with and without pics and listen to some music while on the net. Aside from some occasional typing, that's about it. I checked Dell and Gateway and right now Gateway has the better package deal. They have one system that goes for $349 or so and it looks like what she would need. Are there any other places I should take a look at before we order? Thanks for the info. Nala Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
