Need help>>>in search of PC/Laptop
Posted 05 May 2012 - 08:46 PM
One problem, I'm not really sure what to look for and am upsettingly braindead towards the whole topic of "what to look for"
I want either a PC or a laptop, whichever turns out to be the better option in the end.
Photo editing etc. so programs including PS/Corel etc.
Workplace programs such as Excel/Word
browsing sites such as here
NO social network browsing
NO music/video downloads=movies, latest pirated rihanna album....
-I'm limited in local store availability....Such as Staples,FutureShop and Walmart(I work at Walmart with a %10 discount)
-I'm looking for something as cheap and affordable as possible that can fit as many wants as possible. My main thing is to b able to have a decent card for use of PS....if excel/word is included that's a bonus/if not I'll end up splitting the cost of the programs alone with a friend.
-I have a monitor screen and adapters
-I am not sure which is a better option in terms of PC/laptop etc.
not really sure what else to say :/
If you have any tips/hints to contribute to my hunt, all are much appreciated!

Build pc for about 500-600.
If you have money left over, buy a netbook to take on the go.
Tons of great hardware guides online:
Anandtech, arstechnica, techreport.
Don't be overwhelmed with building a computer. Even a complete beginner can finish in an afternoon.
And never skimp on the power supply.
