Need a new computer!
First of all, while I consider myself quite educated on how to use the internet, I consider myself a complete idiot when it comes to computers in general.
My computer as of late is absolutely a nightmare. It takes forever to complete the smallest tasks and this is only using it for the internet. I would hate to see what would happen if I tried to open up Word or another program.
About 7 months ago it broke down and I had the motherboard replaced but now it is going down, slowly this time! I'd rather it just crash, honestly. So I have been putting up with it and now I have had enough. It must be replaced. The thing is, I have NO clue what to get or look for. To be honest, I don't trust anyone in the stores because I feel they try to sell you the more expensive models or ones with things I do not need.
Can anyone recommend a direction to go in? A name brand to get or not to get? I am pretty sure I am going with a desktop for two reasons. One is because I do not like typing on laptops, always have a hard time using the small keyboard and weird mousepad thing. Two, PRICE! I would probably be looking to pay nearly twice as much for a good laptop as opposed to a good desktop.
Basically, I need your basic computer and as I said, I use it mainly for the internet. I do collect a lot of videos and music but other than that, I only need the basic programs such as Word, calculator, etc. They seem to be standard on every computer.
Any recommendations would be welcome, tell me what you use or have used and how it worked for you. Thanks!
