Welp, for those of you who read my other thread, my laptop is f'ed. Both the mobo and the processor are fried. So, it's time for a new one.
I've decided that I don't really need a laptop, considering that I can get higher performance for a lower price, if I go with a desktop. I'm setting my budget at about 1200 dollars CDN, which is about 1050 USD, (ugh... it hurts to say that.) That 1050 would include a monitor.
Thngs it needs:
RAM (a gig would be nice.)
Wireless internet card card
That's about it. I'm not planning that this will be a gaming bohemoth, but if it can play WoW with all the settings turned up, I'll be very happy. Note: I do not have the time, expertise or patience to build my own, so don't even go there. There's a local place that builds computers to requested specs, that apparently has very good prices, so I'll be checking them out.
Anyone got reccomendations? I noticed this Dell that, with a couple of upgrades, makes a very decent $1200 CDN system, with a monitor. But I'm leery of Dell, for upgrade reasons. Again, any suggestions?
