Since everyone is into modding their versas here, why not try to build your own pc. For the same price as the apple or dell you can build your own kick a$$ pc. I ordered from sites like TigerDirect or Newegg, ordered all the parts, motherboard, cpu, cpu cooler, graphics card, case, keyboard, etc., put it all together, and it's still running after four years. I got a quad core processor so it's not outdated, most programs these days hardly utilizes two cores, so I should be good for awhile. Just my input on this matter.
