I've had my HP Pavilion ZD7000 notebook computer for nearly a year and it
has worked great.

I also have a 5-year old Dell Dimension 600MHz desktop with 256 KB RAM and a
40 GB hard drive which has a direct connection to my Linksys WRT54GS router
and an HP 1220 personal laser printer/scanner/copier combination (connected
via parallel cable, but I can change it to a USB connection if I wish).

I'm looking to replace this old Dell Dimension with a solid yet inexpensive
modern desktop tower. I don't need a new monitor, as the original 19" CRT
that came with it is working fine.

Any suggestions on a good system? Or specific suggestions on how much RAM,
processor speed, hard drive size would be desired?

Well, it's not clear exactly what you would be doing with the computer. Why not
a new low-end Dell Dimension 3000? You can get one for less than $500, and
catch them as part of a special promo offer for even less... Ben Myers
