I need to purchase a new computer for business use. I would like a good, reliable desktop that will handle typical business needs: web browsing, word processing, Quickbooks, etc.
I normally have always bought Dell and was thinking about an Optiplex. However, I saw the following computer at BestBuy for $249: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-pavilion-slimline-desktop-4gb-memory-500gb-hard-drive-black/5815013.p?id=1219194065871&skuId=5815013
Is this a decent computer? I'd prefer to spend $500 or less, if possible. I have a 24" ViewSonic monitor, which I assume I can use with the new computer.
Can anyone give me any suggestions? I do often have a lot of windows open at one time, so I assume that extra RAM would be useful. I am also thinking about adding a second monitor, so I would like for the system to be able to accomodate that.
I appreciate any input!
