Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.66 GHz / 3326 MB
Hello my machine seems sluggish, i've reinstalled windows and it's the same.

I have seen an offer in ALDI and was wondering weather to buy.

Is the Aldi spec any better than my current one, would i gain a lot or hardly anything.

Many thanks for your time.
