My old Acer Aspire T180 running XP Professional has finally given up the ghost.
So I am looking to get a new comp.
I like tower PCs. Love Acer and like the look of Lenovo's (though I have never used one). I do a lot of image manipulation using mainly Photoshop and GIMP. Surf the net, and use open office for writhing and spreadsheets. I'd like a good, solid PC with a fast processor and a good size HD.
At present I'm still using the old VGA monitors and USB mouse and keyboard. I understand that some of the new comps require newer monitors but would prefer not to have to buy one as I have a loft full of old perfectly good ones.
The comp would be in my office next to my broadband hub so I could plug my LAN cable straight into it along with my Canon MX340 printer. But I would need to share the printer with other laptops running Vista and Windows 10.
This comp would be for personal use only, I'm not running a business it's more of a hobby thing, do my banking on, Ebay and stuff like that. So what I'm looking for is some sound advice on what's out there available off the shelf (Curry's/PC World) to invest my children's inheritance money in thats going to last me another 15 years.
Please advise. Regards Loof :0)
