So a guy I work with is looking for a new computer. He needs it as soon as possible because his current computer just crapped out. He's hell-bent on purchasing from Wal-Mart. I've tried to get him to loose elsewhere, but he simply is thick-headed and refuses to give any other stores (brick and mortar or online) the time of day.
That being said, he's looking for something under $500 that can handle simply AutoCAD work. Nothing strenuous, but he doesn't want a laggy experience either.
He has a monitor, so doesn't need to invest in another monitor. Do you guys have any input in this manner?
I doubt he'll even pop it open and upgrade it, but in the event he needs to upgrade it, I'd like to ensure he has the space needed to potentially pop in an addition hard drive or sticks of RAM.
I did a quick search and these were 2 decent ones I could find fitting his desires, but of course there's more than 1 way to skin a cat so I'm looking for other ideas.
He wants this because it simply looks "cool" --> http://www.walmart.com/ip/CyberPowerPC-Black-Gamer-Xtreme-GXi1600W-Desktop-PC-with-Intel-Pentium-G3240-Dual-Core-Processor-4GB-Memory-500GB-Hard-Drive-and-Windows-8.1-Monito/37146824
