Not sure Im posting this in the right section or not.

My sister wants to buy a computer at Future Shop...She has a future shop card and wants to do the 24 payment thing for 2 years to own it and she aked me which one she should get off of the future shop canada website...she wants to spend around $700 to $900 before taxes.

I know there are probably better computers out there for the money however she wants to buy from future shop (Canada)

Two choices we have so far are...

Acer computer comes with a monitor
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...=&langid=EN

Hp without monitor
http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...=&langid=EN

I was leaning towards the Hp computer instead of the Acer...If we did buy the Hp which monitior would be the better buy.

The Acer does have a Quad-Core while the HP is only Dual-Core even though the HP is a bit faster.

Otherwise, they are pretty similar. I like Acer, especially their monitors. We sell HP where I work but they are Business Class and not consumer.

Good luck.
