That's like asking which Chevy should I buy.
Lets narrow it down a little.
CPU.....Intel I5....700 series.
That will get you a mid range machine that will keep most folks happy.
My son needs new desktop,wants fast processor, lots of memory, Adobe Photoshop compatible (he's an art major). Wireless card. Cd/dvd burners. He is not a gamer. He also has LOTS of music.His laptop is barely alive and he will unload it and use it for portability, not storage. Budget is definitely an issue. Would like to stay under $500.00 if at all possible, $600 max. Dell Outlet online was recommended to save $, but I'm having a hard time comparison shopping. Too much I don't understand. I like the look of Inspiron slim-line series because desk space is also an issue. Can anyone help? or direct me to help in this area? He needs it SOON! He has new monitor, speakers, keyboard and mouse already.
