Hi everyone. I sorely need advice regarding a replacement computer. I currently have a Dell Dimension DM061 which is probably 10 years old - and has XP installed on it. It has recently started to be slow to load up the desktop items for some reason - I have run my Anti-virus set up and Malwarebytes too - and no virus has been detected.
I realise XP is no longer supported - and in view of the age of the computer and the fact that I am definitely not technically minded to be able to carry out upgrades myself - I have decided to replace the computer.
However, what to get and where to go for it - that is the question. There is SO MUCH to choose from and it is all too technical. Can forumites please guide me. I generally use my computer for word processing, the occasional spreadsheet, loading up my mp3 from my music lists, and internet searching, banking, emails, skype (with webcam) etc. I will not need it for gaming at all. I don't have lots of photographs saved. I have to say, however, that I am very impatient and do not want to wait forever for things to load up.
As I said, technology is not my forte - so I need responses that are simple and basic.
I look forward to receiving your knowledgeable help I was thinking in the area of £500 to spend.
