Wow, new look to the forums!! havent been on in a while. Different, but I like it Anyways, I need to get home computer. Tired of being able to only go on at work or run to other peoples house if I HAVE to do something. I know alot of you 'know yur sheeit' when it comes to computers, so I need your help I dont know much about computers or which ones are best. I dont want to spend thousands on one. I dont do gaming, just surfing, email, and other normal things that computer is used for, CD, DVD writer/reader, etc. GF will use it for college, etc. Normal typing up stuff, saving, etc. I dont want to get one and regret it and wish I would have gotten something better. I want something fast, and easy to use. I dont want to worry about memory, etc. I want a good system that isnt gonna give me problems and last a while without worrying about having enough memory and being SLOW! My moms computer is like that...SLOW...everytime I go over there I dont know how she uses that thing...slow..slow...slow!! I was talking to a few people and this is kind of what I have found based on suggestions. Let me know if there is something else you would recommend or add. Ask any questions that will help make my decision the right one. http://www.pcclub.com/product_system_details.cfm?itemno=EN-NI4 (and add the 17" flat screen monitor) Click on 'build it' for more details. The second one from the right: http://www1.us.dell.com/content/products/features.aspx/featured_dotw_dimen?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs These are just a few that have been suggested. Give me some feedback! I know how to use a computer, but thats about it!! When it comes to what makes what work and what part is better than another, I have no clue!! Thanks guys!!!
