- Recommend me a new desktop computer……………..
……………..that doesn’t cost the Earth. Been warned off Dell, have been looking at Mesh – other suggestions would be welcome. Please note that as far as IT goes I am an utter numpty and the mere mention of ‘gigs’, ‘RAM’ or ‘cache’ causes my mind to wan d e r. Er, what did you say??? 😕Posted 9 years ago
Or, MacMini, if you already have screen, keyboard, mouse etc.
Seriously, if you are, as you say, an ‘utter numpty’ with IT, then a Mac would be a safer bet than a PC.
Tell you what, go down to an Apple Store, or more easily, PC World, John Lewis’ or somewhere that stocks Macs, and have a look at the iMacs. Get someone to show you round it.
And then tell me you don’t want one. 😉Posted 9 years ago
Required for general t’internetness, report writing/presentations, dowloading (films/audio)and (a big AND) supporting sons graphics work (National Diploma Level3) – I know everyone is going to scream MAAAAAAAAAAAACCC!! but I can’t afford one and he does the majority of his work at college – it’s just so he can mess around with ideas at home.

This would do fine….
comes with Microsoft Works, a decent sized screen and hard drive, and plenty powerful enough.
you could get something cheaper second hand which would suffice, but would not have the peace of mind.Posted 9 years agofreddygMember
What’s your budget?
I’ve got a few machines at home; an eMac, old laptop running Linux (Ubuntu), Pc running XP Pro and a new(ish) Dell PC running Vista.
All have their uses but for day to day use I generally choose the laptop or the Vista box.
Don’t discount Dell, they are pretty good value (as are Mesh). This page lists the current Dell offersPosted 9 years ago
You could get a Mac Mini for that.
I’m assuming you already have a screen, keyboard etc? And get the one with the superdrive, as the ‘combo’ one can’t burn DVDs (come on, Apple, sort it out. The only weakness in an otherwise great product).
Re graphicky type stuff: My students who use Macs, have far less issues than those using PCs. In fact, a good chunk of my time is pent trying to sort out things on the PCs.
Not fanboi, just experienced observations.Posted 9 years ago
