Hello, has a 20 gig hard drive really become to small for a home computer? I haveWindows XP, Office student and teacher, itunes and zune. I have pretty much deleted everything else. My question is with java and all the various updates does this sound right or do i have something hiding in the background taking up space possibly?

With today's requirements, size matters both in hard drive and RAM. You will need Java and should keep this updated. Hard drives are sooooo cheap nowadays that you should upgrade to a larger one. RAM, too. Might check out http://NewEgg.com/ for great sales. I've signed up for their newsletter and they have a "Shocker Deal" every day.

Minimum requirements as stated by M$ is for the OS ONLY! Really doesn't include all the other software it is running and the bells and whistles you add: System requirements for Windows XP operating systems
