Dell desktop

I purchased a Mac Mini and decided I do not like OS, so I'm looking at desktops. I've been told that Dell is the least likely to have issues and others have said that HP is the best. I'd like to know how CNet or any experienced techies rate these two and why.

just find one you like that has the features you need. I personally have had just about every major model there is including Dell and HP and never had a problem I did not cause. they all have lemons in addition to recalls and they all have great models.

Surrounded by Dells at the office, they're mostly OK.

As to your Mini, I hear you can run Windows and Linux on that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
