I kissed goodbye to my sony vaio laptop in June when it suffered a nasty fall and was unable to be salvaged. I am looking to buy a new computer, but am really confused about what to go for. I don't think I'm being too picky, but I am on a bit of a budget.
Here are my requirements/computing habits:
-watching online video e.g. youtube, but I'm not fussed about high def.
-listening to music/watching films (again not worried about HD)
-I'd like windows 7!
-I'd also like a desktop (having a laptop in the past has meant that I'm almost permanently attached to my computer)
-I'd like to spend around ?300 ($480), excluding monitor as I already have one.
-not worried about a massive hard drive as I have an external.
I've been looking at nettops like the aspire revo, as they look like they would suit my needs. However, I know they get a bad press. Would they be good enough for a basic user like me? Or are they a false economy - they are cheap, but will I be looking to change my PC within say 2 years?
Essentially I'm a pretty light pc user, and I just want my computer to perform basic tasks - so what's best for me?
Any help you could give would be much appreciated.
