Would have certainly considered that. However, do not see that as an option on any of the desktops listed. No option on the 4700C. On the 8400:
What about keeping the "free" LCD and adding a second 20" model?
Optional Second Monitor
If you purchase two VGA (analog) monitors, you will also need to purchase the DVI-VGA Adapter.

- 19 inch Ultrasharp™ 1905FP Digital Flat Panel [add $599 or $18/month2]

Thank you Brad and Ross. Hopefully someone has a better suggestion than the one I listed.
Someone out there has to have put together a worthy configuation for this deal by now... I'll see if I can come up with anything.
I can live with $430 for the 2001FP as outlined above, if not - the chiefest reasons being that the 2001FP deals are growing more and more scarce (in favor of 2005FPW deals) and those deals that do surface are for Small Business (which involves tax in New York).

I believe they all will. The more expensive machines will probably have upgrades to at least a combo drive and a 19" analog LCD, and the cheaper machines will give you either a DVD-ROM or CD-RW drive and probably a 15" or 17" LCD.
Is it know which models will have the LCD and drive upgrades for free tomorrow?
I'd think the free LCD upgrades will hopefully drop the upgrade prices for the 2001FP to under $400 if we're lucky.

Multiply that by infinity, take it to the depths of forever, and you will still have barely a glimpse of what my life as an actuary is like.
Arg, this is tough when there are too many unkowns.
Please excuse the above liberal license, Universal Pictures.
