Thanks Michael...I know about those places and also about Discount PC
I am on disability and just never have an extra 100.00+  laying
around.  would be nice if I did!  :o)  I just live on a very tight

Dell has a complete system with Ubuntu for $419.00 includes 29"
monitor, kybd, mouse but I don't need all that.  They monthly payment
for that one is $15.00 wich for me is a lot easier to handle.
because it's a small monthly payment instead of 1 large chunk!

Since I don't need all that and really want just the tower, I want to
see if I can only buy a tower from them.  Just the towersimilarly
configured I am hoping will cost even less...

Thank you very much for taking the time to suggest some ideas..I LOVE
plundering in that Goodwill store.  Sister bought a really nice HP all
in one prointer there.
