I've been using laptops for a few years now. The last desktop I had was back in 2005 or 2006 and it ran on Windows XP. I've always preferred desktops since I like to just stay in one place, and because they have more hard drive space and memory than laptops, but because I once traveled quite a bit laptops have been best. But they greatly limit what I like to do.
Since I am going to be living with my mom most of the time and only going to see my dad in the summer and in November, I'm saving up a bunch of money to get a bunch of different programs, and a tablet and scanner and whatever, and a desktop. What I'll be doing is drawing, animating, editing, some voice acting and making Let's Plays. Memory shouldn't be too much of a problem since I can always upgrade if there isn't enough, and I'm planning on getting an external hard drive to move and store a bunch of stuff if I start to run out of space, but I would prefer not spending too much money on such things. So what would be best for my geeking out? (And please nothing about Apples. Not that they aren't good, but I don't want to spend $3000 on something that does less than what a regular computer can do)
