I'm sorry that I didn't make it clear that the price I quoted was for a
new miditower system without screen, not a laptop. A new laptop would
cost at least $2000 (a reasonable second hand laptop at least $1500).
Neither of these would have the features of the miditower or be as
'future proof'. (Note: a 17" screen would cost $200 to $300.)
