    The new HP that I purchased eleven days ago has failed. Micro Center
    says it is no longer available. They are offering an Acer with the
    Intel Core 2 Duo processor in it as a comparable unit. The HP had a
    dual Pentium chip. Is there a difference between the Core and the
    Pentium? I was under the impression the Pentium was still -the- Intel
    chip to buy.

    What I purchased eleven days ago; 'Micro Center - Pavilion a6500f'
    (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0291252)

    What Micro Center is now offering; 'Micro Center - DX4640-UB201A'
    (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0295987)

    These don't seem comparable to me.

  4. Acer monitors are not too bad. Does that answer your question?

    I always think that it is a good idea to go with the manufacturer who has
    the best support web site, and HP scores in this area very highly in my
    opinion.. way better than Dell or Acer..
