Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

Sorry I couldn't pass an opportunity to let everyone know about this hot deal


Not a real power house but may fit a family/student need

The memory (DDR2 PC2-6400) is a little light but you can max it out (4gig=2x2gig) for $60  or just add one (has 2 slots) and get 3 gig (xp 32 bit only supports up to 3gig)for half that, comes w/XP Home for all you Vista haters

Hey a 20" monitor alone is almost worth $300

It got mostly good reviews

Amazing the amount of computer you can get for such a small investment. Besides the monitor being worth almost that much XP Home Full Version would cost you a couple hundred if you were building it yourself. Long gone are the days when you built them yourself to save some money. Today it's cheaper to buy a basic box and upgrade if you feel you need to. For most users who are going to do some email, net cruising and Facebook and maybe a bit of word processing and basic photo editing and printing that PC has more then enough power. Not too may years ago we would've been drooling over those specs.
