    Assuming you intend to use them for video editting then my answer would be neither.

    Both specs only quote a single HDD of 160Gb. For video editting this is...

    a) not nearly enough disc space; and
    b) not enough drives. you will want a seperate OS drive for Windows and application installations and then a completely seperate drive for video and video work.

    Of course you could buy either of the two specs quoted and then pop in a couple of 250GB drive afterwards.

    Also, what is Windows XP Media Centre edition? I'm not familiar with it.

    Thanks for the feedback, what about everthing else. I will upgrade to a 250gig and i have a seperate 10 gig already just for the OS. Im not crazy into editing just making a motorcycle video about 30 minutes long.. in the future... Im basically using it for everday computing... school, games, adn then editing. Any other suggestions? BTW i dont really know what media center is.. prolly just a marketing scheme.
