My budget for the new computer is:
Under $800What are the primary uses for this computer:
The primary uses for this computer will be Internet browsing and email, storing music and pictures, and art programs such as Paint Tool Sai, Photoshop, etc. I will also be using a drawing tablet.What software do you intend on using on the computer?
I need the basic Microsoft Office stuff for writing essays and other such homework, as well as Windows Media Player. I plan to mainly use art software such as Paint Tool Sai and Photoshop. And Skype.Do you play games?
I play very few games, but I very rarely play games that you buy at the store. If I did play games, they would be on game websites such as www.addictinggames.com
for example. (I don't know the technical term for these kinds of games, sorry.)
I will not be playing any sort of MMORPG or graphics-heavy game.Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
I usually only have the Internet open, Windows Media Player, and one other program.Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?
I will be storing mainly pictures and music on the computer, so yes.Other:
This computer is intended for use in Spain. I don't know exactly what is different there computer-wise.
I would also like a light up keyboard for typing in dim conditions.
Something travel-worthy would also be nice.
