Can anyone at all help me? I really have no idea what I am doing. I know nothing about specs of computers, what's the best to buy, what do I need to have, etc.... I am trying to find a good but inexpensive computer for my daughter for Christmas but I have no idea what anything means. She needs to be able to download some discs onto the computer for her Piano and she also has a movie maker. She likes to play games on the computer too. Also she has to be able to do school work and stuff. She likes saving lots of pictures and writing a lot of songs. Can anyone help?

Just was wondering what is your budget and are you looking for a desktop or laptop?
