Why not buy a 1st gen Nexus 7 instead?

Reaper, I'm already going for a less-than-$200 build—how "cheap" do you think I wouldn't go? Lol. Besides, I already said I'd get four.

And, ah, alright, then, Jal. Thanks for finding what I overlooked.

There's an extent to how cheap you can go. I have a laptop with 3GB and it's a pain in the ass to use. I can't imagine how bad 2GB would be in this day and age.

And yes, you said you'd get 4GB, but I had to emphasize the importance.

Could you not just save up an extra $50-$100 to get a computer which is a bit better?

I'd take you a lot less than a year to save up an extra $50-$100.

why not get a sub-$200 netbook or chromebook? for around the same price you'll be able to do everything you want with it, but with added portability

A tablet, EStar? Well, there are already three tablets in my household, and they don't particularly suit my needs, so I'd like to stray away from them.

1111, it's not that I can't save up money to get better parts, but that I need to keep saving each dollar I earn for my tour fees (no job, either)...but I need to at least get my school work done, and I'm willing to spend practically the bare minimum on a computer.

GTL, thanks for the suggestion. My parents are already purchasing a laptop for me to use for college, but again, it will be a while until that actually happens. Regardless, my preference lies with desktops, which is why I want to put a cheap build together.
