Could not copy and paste the template so will try my best to answer
my Budget: $700 or under...we are looking to buy two computers.
Primary Uses: email, web browsing, projects such as cards, labels, craft projects, writing, research, accounting, Hulu....would like to try Netflix
Software intended: something like Print shop or Avery or design
Play Games: download games from Big Fish, Pogo, etc. (does that sound lame?)
Many programs open at once: Umm not sure.I currently have a Dell Dimension 8300. I have firefox as browser, use AOL as homepage and mail. Windows XP. I tend to leave computer on when i walk away from it.
Store music or photos: Photos YES! Want to be able to do more with photos and store more. Currently have Fine Pix viewer
So this all sounds lame, right? Makes me feel outdated along with computer. I would like capabilities to learn and do a bit more graphic work, projects. Create greeting cards, tags, labels, etc.etc. I try to do research on topics, do a lot of browsing. Download information for a project I am attempting.
I need something that is easy to understand, has a decent memory (am tired of virtual memory to low box) and decent speed.
A 23 inch monitor would be nice, new keyboard and wireless mouse. we just got a HD tv, but its not smart.
I am not savvy about GB size, so the numbers are confusing me. Any suggestions or guidance as to what to look for as far as memory and speed?
Hubby has same model but he needs to do graphics, schematics on his. Windows 8 does not support the software he needs to use...he really does not want to go back to Autocad. he spends oodles of time on sites, graphics are important. webcasts, etc.
We have wireless set up Use charter cable
Many thanks for your patience, not laughing and assistance
