the benefits of the dell is btx which will cool your gpu very well, hence gaming. you could just build it yourself. intel dual core or amd dual core.
I currently own a 4-year old Toshiba Satellite 1625 laptop that I have been very happy with - up to the last 6 months. But it's now time to purchase a new computer and I have decided to go with a desktop - I don't need the portability and think I can get more with a desktop.
I am trying to decide between a Dell 9100 and one of the HP models. I don't do a lot of gaming/graphics, other than a little internet bridge - nor do I watch DVDs on the computer. There are only adults in the house.
I do surf the net and do Word/Excel/Access and Quickbooks. Perhaps I would do more with equipment that would allow me to do more.
Can someone help lead me down the right path? Thanks.
