My budget for the new computer is: $ 500 w/out monitor
What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc) The computers are for my Kids 7 and 11
What software do you intend on using on the computer? What ever comes on the computer for now.
Do you play games? If so, what type of games? 7 year old plays games such as mindcraft but will start doing more on this. Into infamous and black ops on the x box. Etc. so buying for future as well
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? They run lots of programs at once just because they forget to close them, there not multitasking, just constantly clicking on new items.
Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer? There will be pictures and games stored.
Looking for help with what processor. I am looking for 3ghz or better with 6 to 8 g memory with 500 to 1tb storage. Need some help with what computer from box store to get, everything is running together. I just want them to get a good computer for Christmas.
