What do you think of the "As Seen On TV" computers? Saw a Systemax,1.4 Athlon, 40gb hard drive,speakers, monitor, 24 software titles, all the bells and whistles for $1299. Am I asking for trouble? Thanks for the help

Answer

This question was answered on September 18, 2001. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

The price is resonable, looking online I found a site that had an article about a Systemax A1000RV Lifestyle 0320 that has a 1Ghz Athlon processor, 128Mb of memory, and a 30Gb hard drive The price of this unit was $1850.00, it came with a 19in flat screen color monitor They also said that this Systemax machine is a complete PC package aimed fairly and squarely at the home market This machine was more that capable of playing any current 3D games

As far as buying from an "As Seen On TV" what kind of warranty do they offer? You may want to check that out

Good luck.
