Looking for something in the $800 range.
My old computer was an HP 2.8 Ghz Intel Celeron Processor with 512 MB (ddr) and 120 GB hard drive. After a year the CD writer broke. It's only about three years old but it seems to keep having problems that make me suspect the motherboard is faulty.
On that note, I do not want another HP computer.
A few people have told me to get a Dell. My laptop is a Dell and it has been pretty good so far but I've only had it for a very short time.
So, on that note, what would you advise me to purchase? Here are some more considerations:
1. Preferably better than the desktop I currently have (heh).
2. A built in router would be great but I suppose I can get an outside one.
3. I use the computer for web browsing (high graphics at places like Myspace, etc), word processing (for the novel) and sometimes for games.
4. I have heard Windows Vista sucks, so, I suppose I only want Windows XP, right?
