    >You cannot avoid sales tax IF your state has mandated an on-line sales tax. That's the law. PS - THis is the desktop section and so I am going to recommend a DESKTOP. If you want a laptop, go to the laptop section.

    Go to:http://www.tigerdirect.com/ and sign up for their emails. They always have super deals on Bare bones systems that are cheap because YOU put it together.

    Then you might have to add the operating system, go and get Linux Ubuntu here: http://www.ubuntu.com/ It is NOT windows but IS FREE!!! So is all the programs that run on it. You can run Windows programs on it though.

    If You must have Windows then get it cheaper here: http://www.cheapsoftwaresonline.com/windows_7
