OK, some of you know that I graduated in June and one of my gifts was money from my uncle to get a computer.
Now, I seem to be partial to Dell b/c we have 2 in the family. I work with Gatemay and Compaq at home but seem to be happier with Dell. Why? My brother was the 8100 with 30 Gig Hard drive and 512 processing.
I was going for the 8200 with a 80 hard drive, 512 processing and 1.7 Pentium, Zip Drive, CD burner and was going to keep another bay open for a future DVD burner purchase. My purposes: One 1-2 games (flight sim and Fly, if at all), Powerpoint and Word capability, personal finance, quick net usage and taking my analog videos and creating movies to be put on Zip, then later on DVD.
Some of you mentioned in the past to go with a homebuilt but my only problem with that is the support that would be lacking.
Now, to make confuse me more, many are telling to to go with a lap top. I dont think I need it though. I don;t see myself as one carrying it around and portability isn't a major issue for me. Can you name some other pros/cons to getting a laptop vs a desk top?
Thanks so much for reading this and adding your imput
I really appreciate it.
