Use it for a while then you tell us how you did. That's what matters.

I meant price wise.

I would only buy Clones but from the specs on your list it is IMPOSSIBLE to know if it was a good deal. For example:

128 MB memory
PC100, PC133? Brand?

40 GB hard drive
Brand? 7200 RPM? ATA100?

CD-Writer
Brand? RAW support? Speed?

DVD Player
Brand? Speed?
