We want to be able to:
-surf the web very quickly
-check email quickly
-photo processing (possibly creating slideshows)
-design and create websites

And possibly if it doesn't cost too much extra:
-use it to show DVDs/television/play music at a high

We already have an external HD of 180 GB. How much
more HD space do you recommend we buy? What is the difference between HD space and ROM?

Hi. Will you be gaming? Saving movies? Music? Lots of pictures? If so, get yourself some nice space. I have 160 GB inside the machine, and a 100 GB just for backups, but I'm not a music/video/gaming guru either.

Right now I am running a 250 gb main drive and a 160 gb back up, I would recommend a minimum 160gb main hard drive and use your external drive as back up
