The 1.6 is treating me great! I think its a great machine for the money. Im not sure what kind of work you do, but, Im studying Industrial Design, and use a lot of 3D software etc.... last night I was doing homework, I was useing photoshop, illustrator, open web page, watching the matrix on DVD, and had no problems of any kind.
