Dear Melissa and Linux Australia,

Attached is the quotation from Hallmark Computers for the systems we proposed to purchase; 4Gb of RAM is quoted, instead of the 2Gb in our first proposal. Cost for each system is $990 (so $1,980 for two systems).

Here are the updated specs for the systems we wish to purchase: 

Asus V3-M2A690G Barebone x1
AMD Phenom 9550 Quad Core CPU x1
2Gb Transcend 800Mhz DIMM's x2 ( Total 4Gb )
Inno3D 8400GS 256Mb (Dual output 1x DVI, 1x DSUB) x1
Samsung 5400 500Gb SATA HDD x1
Samsung 22x SATA Optical Drive x1
Upsonic ProOffice 650Va UPS x1
