I was thinking of getting a new computer before Christmas, but my union sent out a prepare-for-battle memo warning us to postpone major purchases, which on reflection seemed like a good idea. Now that I know that I’m getting paid next Thursday, and not by the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers at the union office, that plan’s on the front burner again.
Desktop PC. I have a mini-Mac, mostly for video production, and they’ll have to share keyboard, mouse and screen. Easy to buy. Dell has various sins, which I’m aware of, but they do offer the convenience of online ordering. I don’t need extra processing capacity for gaming, but I might need it for something else – my current computer chokes when I’m running Photoshop along with a couple of other programs. Budget, for the sake of argument, somewhere between $1K-$1500.
What about this thing, just to get the ball rolling?
