So, my laptop is dead and I need something to replace it. I have a nexus 7 that I use for all browsing and emailing etc. My laptop was used to do work invoices on, to run Sibelius on (music notation software), store photos and iTunes. Given how much I use the nexus, a laptop is not strictly required now, and I'm thinking of getting a desktop and hooking it up to my TV....it would only really be used at the end of the month when I do my invoices, but it'd be nice to watch Eurosport player through my TV too.
So, is a desktop tower through my TV a good idea? I don't really need a massively powerful setup but I'd like it to last longer than the 2-3 years that budget laptops seem to last. Cheaper is better, or should I just get another cheap laptop?
