What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? Wanting to have a new hard drive or improved hard drive and new monitor plus would like wireless capability for wii, xbox 360 live, and 1 laptop son has at college and would like to get a new one for myself. Play on facebook games along with iwin games, command and conquer games.
What software do you intend on using on the computer? windows office, itunes, kodak (lots of pictures)
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? internet live games like red alert, iwin games like farm frenzy, facebook games like farmville and mafia wars, my son hooks his xbox live up to play c&c: modern day warfare with a long cable that unhooks me from the internet and would like to hook the wii up to the internet also. My husband also plays on pogo his cribbage games.
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? would like to have my son when he comes home from college and me playing on our own at the same time while my husband is playing on the hard drive one.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? Yes! I have a lot of pix and my son has large itunes library.
I saw something on best buy about a new computer, a laptop, and a netbook? for 1199 with geek squad coming to hook it all up wireless and don't know if that is a good buy or not for what I want to do?
