    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...

    Price: $999 (I got $1200)

    Go for it, unless you want a gaming rig.

    Better off with a iMac for an all-in-one computer and just dual booting Windows to be honest, superior specs for a bit more money

    Thanks for the help guys [​IMG]

    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

    well an iMac will give you a far better processor, which will help you alot with your work...
    EDIT:
    3,06 Ghz C2D, 21,5" Full HD Display, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD, Nvidia 9400m (not that good for games)

    you will get this for 1099 Euro
