I too think the Toshiba's are a good buy. I just picked up a Compaq 906, 20 GB hard drive, Windows XP, 1.33 MHZ, CDROM/DVD recorder. I use it for storing MP3's and playing them during the DJ portion of the evenings. I have musicbox software and play it through the standard soundcard that the computer came with. Pumped through my EV speakers, it rocks...and not a glitch or delay and the sound quality is quite good. Around $900 bucks after the rebate. Try the Dell or HP web pages and go to the refurbished or special deal sections. Also, I bought mine with no interest for a year/and no payments. There are a zillion good deals to be had with a little research Good Luck!!!
