The killer is the RAM size.
I picked up one of these for my beautiful girlfriend yesterday (I say "picked 
up" literally, because she paid):

It's expired already, but what a great deal.

Already has a fresh copy of Windows XP SP2 on it (for compatibility sake, so 
she can get tech help in Hawaii, at school), but I installed a fresh copy of 
PCLinuxOS P8 on it to dual boot, and it is very very slick.
