Im going to be getting a hp pavilloan 500a soon and am just wondering wat every one thinks of them?
i no there not the best computer and i could do better if i did a custom job but i kept blowing my budget with a custom job. i really like their one touch keyboard and its also under 2000 dollars here are the stats...

intel celeron 1.2 Ghz processor
256mb ram
256k cache
20 gig hd
48x cd rom drive
intergrated intel direct agp graphics card
4 usb 2 serial 1 parallel 1 game
more info at hp.co.nz

so wat do u all think serriously? its only for home use and not that much gaming either. but some time in the future i plan on upgrading the graphics card which means a new mother board does any 1 have an idea of how much that mite set me back ? probably gforce 2 64mb or simalar.
this will hapen after i add more ram and hd as well as cd writter and other accessories.
