The 235e should be more than enough--should actually do fine for even

My question for you:  where did you find a 235e for sale?  I've been
looking for a 2XXe since the day they were released but have only found
them on sale "special order"--never in stock (and have never trusted the
vendors would actually get them).  It seems to me that Sony and HP are
getting all of the new dual-core energy-efficient series of AMD chips.
