    It is better than your previous 1.6GHz computer.

    That much memory is kinda overkill for normal usage.

    And the hard drive could be better. You can get 1TB drives
    that run at a constant 7200RPM, rather than being variable
    speed or running at some weird speed like 5900 RPM.

    Your copied description makes no mention of graphics capability.
    If you play 3D games, then that can be an important factor.
    If the graphics are "integrated" and the video connector
    is mounted in the "I/O area" plate, then chances are the
    3D graphics capabilities are pretty weak.

    If you're using the computer mainly for Microsoft Word and email,
    then the graphics choice hardly matters.

    *******

    If you're going to post any more of these:

    1) Post a URL to the site selling the product.

    2) Tell us a little bit about how you intend to use
    the computer. Are you a graphics artist (Photoshop) ?
    Do you edit and make movies ? Do you only send emails ?
    Do you play 3D computer games ?

    Otherwise, we can't really give you good advice.

    In terms of "fast", I can think of faster solutions, so the
    specs you copied above, are not the fastest computer by
    any stretch of the imagination.

    This is a fast processor. 6 cores running at 3.33GHz. The price of
    this processor is $1663 each.

    http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=47916&processor=X5680&spec-codes=SLBV5

    This is a fast dual core processor. It too runs at 3.33Ghz. It
    doesn't use as much electricity as the other one does. The computer
    this one is installed in, would also be cheaper to purchase.

    Actually,my first choice is an all in one PC. I know the normal desktop will
    give me the line input but I don't want all the wires anymore..First off, I
    want to digitize about 50 stereo analog cassette tapes which are completely
    edited including 4 secs of dead silence between tracks... I want also the
    machine to have a line input digitizing with separate tracks..I don't want
    to use a UBS adapter as I don't know if it will deliver my music files in
    stereo.. I want to quick surf the net and enjoy email...Everything else is
    secondary to me.My goal is to spend between 600 to 800 dollars..I have done
    alot of searching different manufacturers...Thanks,Nicolino

    I selected the middle one here, 200t. Copy the following two lines into your browser.

    http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/shopping/series_can.do?storeName=computer_store&
    landing=desktops&a1=Category&v1=All-in-One%20PCs&jumpid=in_R329_prodexp/hhoslp/psg/desktops/All-in-One_PCs

    Base price after rebate $699

    Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual-Core processor E6500 [2.93GHz, 2MB L2, 1066MHz FSB] +$60
    (Slight processor upgrade. That processor has VT-x. The slower processors don't.
    May help with WinXP mode, if you ever upgrade to that. My current processor
    doesn't support VT-x, which is why I selected the upgrade.)

    Memory 4GB (to help Win7) for +$40
    Hard drive 500GB 7200RPM
    Networking - Wireless N LAN card (no wires)
    HP wireless keyboard and HP wireless optical mouse +$20
    Display 21.5-inch Full HD 1920×1080 LED-backlit
    Microphone and headphone jack inputs (no details on capabilities!)

    Total = $819

    I don't know which model that is exactly, but the description here says the
    sound solution is RealTek ALC269. This hardware might be similar to the
    200T model.

    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=4154837

    This is the ALC269. As used in the HP computer, I don't see how the
    second input can be used. One of the inputs is probably wired to
    the microphone jack. The ALC269 has an integrated power amplifier, to
    drive the speakers built into the all-in-one computer.

    http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/...d=1&PNid=24&PFid=27&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=166

    The reason I'm checking the sound jack, is to try to figure out whether
    it is "normal" or not. The sound chip provided is pretty complex.
