Which one seems like a better deal? If we could get either with the same (Internal PCI 802.11g Wireless Network Card) wireless card and 64 bit windows which one would be better?

Thanks in advance.

Never ever ever get home basic its terrible. Home premium is the way to go.

64 bit will let you take better advantage of your 3gb of ram.

A 17" monitor (especially a wide one) will be far too small and will look crap. Get a 19".

But which computer overall looks better?

They are the same, except one s $40 more because it comes with premium
