Mike's Note: Now, if your a complete compu-moron like me and $350 is too rich for your blood, and you only want to dink around a little and see if you're capable of doing this, he's written a previous article on how to build a basic Vista-capable P.C. for about $150 in materials (Probably even less by now.).

I just bought the little guy a complete, used Dell system of his own for Christmas (off ebay). 2.8 Intel processor, 120 gig hard drive, 1 gig of ram, 15" LCD monitor, keyboard, mouse, speakers, XP Pro w/recovery disk, blah, blah, blah. I paid $300, shipping and all.
