Need to purchase a New PC

by milliberty / April 1, 2005 8:49 PM PST

Hello All:

I have a 4 year old Dell PC/P3(Dimension l733r) and need to replace it. I will use it for a part time home business and work related projects. I will be the only user. I would also like to include a 19" monitor....

I would like to keep the price under $1300.

I would appreciate some professional advise.

Thank you,

Boston, Massachusetts

Seems to be a rash of PC upgrades going around.

What SPECIFICALLY do you want to do with the machine?

What specific software do you run?

Wait a few weeks. Then you will be able to purchase an Athlon 64 computer with Windows 64 bit installed.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
