I agree with the software recommendations given so
far except for hard disk capacity. I know that anyone
who buys a 320 MB HD will be sorry in six months,
especially if you are doing DTP work. You can add a
second HD, but that is not the ideal solution.
With HD prices declining rapidly, the minimum size
you should consider is 850 MB. Locally, they sell for
$189. A 1,342 MB SCSI-II is only $259.
The same is happening in CD-ROM drives. Quad-speed
drives are under $200 and double-speed drives have
gone the way of 2400 bps modems.
