I have an employee who is looking to get a desktop computer to work from. She asked me for a recommendation, I don't really know what to suggest. The work is not very demanding of a computer. It would be some basic programs that do not take a lot of resources to run, internet, outlook and other office products and a PDF editor. She was hoping to get Win8 and was planing on buying Office 365 (the yearly subscription to allow her use it for up to 5 devices).
She doesn't have a monitor or anything for a desktop set up. She has been working off a laptop and wants to have an actual desktop set up.
Her budget is around $600, would like to get mouse, keyboard, monitor and computer for this (this does not include the cost of the office and PDF software). She wants to get a computer that is already built so she doesn't have to worry about building one. She saw these at best buy and wanted to know if they were good or not and if there were better values out there for the money.
Does anyone have any recommendations on a computer that meets these needs and is of good quality, are there any brands to stay away from?
Here is one I found that is the ASUS brand I like and I would just need to buy a monitor:
This would be the other one I would like:
But just looking, it looks the HP is going to be better. It has wireless, but then the ASUS has Adobe installed in it which has more features then the “free” product….
