Nice price but a 1.6 amd is going to be soooo slow
I doubt they'll be making a 3D video, xD!
I had an Intel Atom in a laptop, worked well enough for browsing the internet...
I would rather have the Intel. But if worse come to worse I would go with at least 2.5 ghz AMD duel core cpu. I have had a few bad experiences with the lower clocked ones being unable to even be remotely capable of even browsing the interne or watching videos.
They do burn and make dvds for backups of movies and home movies
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer ($17.98 @ Outlet PC)
Got a new disk drive in the old computer already so that's not necessary.
