Geeks.com has an INtel P4 2.4GHz, 512MB, 38GB, XP Pro for $219.

Just picked one up to replace my VAIO.

Let me know how big it is when you get it Vivek... I need a small pc for my Kodicomm

I'll take some pics and post hem.

Also, I just found out how to reset the BIOS on my VAIO. If that works, i may be selling this one.

Got this PC, got it setup. 2 notes:

1) It looks like a low-profile, small form factor unit. Hence, not sure a kodicomm card would fit. I'll check this weekend.

2) The integrated graphics card is AWFUL, my eyes hurt.

3) Works fine, has XP Pro, whaddya want for $219.

Ok, sick of the low-profile/smallform factor of this. I just can't reuse it as a 2nd video renderer, the quality from that ATI 9000 that I jammed in there is just awful.

i'm going to sell this to a coworker who wants a small PC, and get a cheap fullsize one. Anyone know of something along those lines? Refurb is fine.

I'm checking frys/outpost, and cusa, any other leads would be greatly appreciated.

I've used lots of 510 series machines. These are great for someone who needs to do email, word processing and web surfing, and if I read the ad correctly, that's $219 *including an XP Pro license*. This is the type of thing to buy for your mother-in-law, but not for heavy graphics/video work.
