So, I've been thinking of buying a PC. Right now I have a Toshiba Satellite U300-150, it's good and all, it does the job pretty well. But I still want a more power machine.

So I saw this...

Looks like I'm gonna go for it. I know I can get a better specs for a lower price, but the problem is I don't know how to build a PC. And I'm not gonna be using it for gaming. (Just work, work, work, and then maybe watch a movie or something....)


@DSGamer64: A lot of people suggested the iMac, and said the same thing about dual booting. But I don't have any experience in this kind of stuff (dual booting, sounds hard :3). I just want to buy a good PC, install my shit and start working. Besides, I'm not a big fan of Macs.


Thanks again, everyone.

looks good enough if your not doing anything intensive... you really can get more bang for your buck if you shop around a little but as far as just for functional and aesthetically pleasing that looks alright.... my advice is wait a week while checking out other deals within your budget... check places like futureshop/bestbuy dell newegg and tigerdirect... you'd be surprised what you can come up with.... those cool startrek flatscreen touchy computers are pretty awesome lol... okay have fun
