We will be looking to replace our desktop soon.
Looking for 3-400 dollar range, no video games or anything, just web surfing,very basic stuff, maybe quality music files in the future, but that will depend on cost of songs.
Mainly wondering if brands are really all that different as far as dependability.
We have owned a custom built rig an off the shelf HP, and a Frys store demo unit Gateway being our current unit that is running windows vista
Believe it or not, the gateway has been great, just getting long in the tooth.
Also wondering if windows 8.1 is an overlay type deal that one could get from a download, as all the desktops at wal mart today only had win8 on the boxes.
Please forgive simple questions, but i am far from a techie.
And as always, any help is greatly app.
