  2. i think it could be cheaper for the spec as especially the processor runs at 1.8ghz, not fast for a brand new pc nowadays

    1.8G cpu is far behind new machines. It should do everything you want,
    but its a lot of money for a NOS machine.

    But it's a Core 2 Duo, the processors run much more efficient; the 1.86MHz
    is not a problem. It's fairly priced for the spec.

    About the equiv of 3.7 MHz.

    Providing they have one left at the shop you go to

    It's a Core 2 Duo processor, which is brand new. Difficult to predict
    just how fast it will be without going through the reviews in recent
    magazines. It's probably about as fast as the top Pentium D models.

    But it's a Core2 Duo. It's hardly just a 1.8gig CPU, is it?

    It's not a bad buy at all.
    Not earth shattering for the money but it's certainly not significantly
    overpriced.

    A 1.86ghz core2 duo processor *is* a relatively new CPU.
    The clock speed is lower than the much older 3ghz P4 processors but they
    have more pipelines so they achieve more in a single clock cycle , have much
    more cache memory and a faster FSB , not to mention the fact that they have
    two separate cores so it will be more responsive when running multiple
    apps..

    Shame it's not NOS then isn't it

    Almost 4 times as fast as a C64.

    I've looked and I haven't seen any more complaints about them than any other
    manufacture.
    I note not many manufactures offer a 3 year warranty on their PCs

    I think you might misunderstand the technology. The core duo processers are
    exceptionally fast, for a low clock speed, and easily the equivalent of a
    athlon64 3800 x2.

    You didnt look hard enough and have decided regardless of the evidence.

    > I note not many manufactures offer a 3 year warranty on their PCs


    Oh bullshit, its available with plenty.

    Yeah, but it was a 6510 and not a plain old 6502!
