I was wanting to ask yall some advise on a desk top computer-my wife needs a new one and thinking a christmas gift would be good.here is the thing-I have no idea what any #s or stuff thats even about on these things.I am a dumbass when it comes to one.
I would like to have something for her business that will last a while and can get parts for when taken to a repair shop when needed.(I have heard about the rumor of repair after sales).
I did find where she was writing #s off of the one she has-I hope it makes since
3 gb ram 80 gb hd 2.1mhz

I just need to know what to look for and what is a good brand i guess.I appreciate the help and time.thank you kenny

Unless you are buying a application specific machine (games, video/audio editing) do not try to build one IMO. Find a manufaturer you like (Dell, IBM, Sony) and buy one. Get as much RAM as you can afford. Dual Core Processor. I dont worry as much about HD size because I have a one terrabyte external HD.

Ive had very good luck with Dell for the last couple of computers. I know everyone has their opinions, thats mine.

that said, I just bought a laptop & Printer for my son for High School. I got both of them from http://www.newegg.com/ they had both in stock, one shipped same day I ordered it & the other the next day. easy web site & good prices.

Im no computer guy so I talked with our computer dude, told him what I wanted & he told me what to look for.

IMac desk top with the 24 inch screen. Had one for 3 years now 0 issues and still lightning fast. Had Dell before this they were always good at the get go but slowed down or developed issues after 6 months to a year got tired of doing the "ad-aware sweep" and virus scans every week or so.

Tiger Direct or newegg. Get a refurb with an i5 Intel processor & 4gb ram & you'll be good for years.

Gateway has been good for me. They do less of the pre installed useless crap than most.
