A friend of mine is considering buying one of those SALE bundles from Warehouse Stationary.

The processor and package is good but has anyone seen the internals - mobo? ram speed? specs??

My friend wants to use it for everything - I suggested another 256MB RAM and a good VGA card.

There has been a large discussion on this thread (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=35617)
Personally it looks to me like a great deal.
Check first if it can accept an AGP slot video card as some "brand name" units do not have a slot on the motherboard.

Yeah the guy in the shop told him it can take more RAM and has a "slot" for a video card. I would definately want to see the insides before I bought one though :)

Usually sale means "end of this model". Still, for normal use they appear good value. Disadvantage is that upgradability is usually none. Won't have the ability to play the latest games.
So for those that just do office and internet work, then it is OK.
You may also find that your recommendations cannot be done, as it is a "production model" .
Worth a look at somewhere like QMB website and compare price/specifications.
