    I hear you on that. I should say that my main focus is typically to have MS Office and a handful of websites open maybe. The streaming isn't so important for this computer.

    Awesome input though; stuff to keep in mind for sure.

    ebay has buyer protection. If you get something that doesn't work from ebay, you can request a return even if the seller says no returns, even if it's used, ebay has a guarantee.

    But when you buy something new on there, you can trust the seller 99% of the time. Check their feedback.

    Every computer made today kicks ass.

    Don't worry about it.

    I am willing to pay more if I have to, but it's about..


    What do you need it for? I used to be like that, buying the best computer around. And I realized I didn't need it

    Yea, back when computers were higher priced, I spent about $2500 on a laptop when I could've got by on a third of that. At the same time I bought a desktop for about $2,000 (overspent on that, but it lasted about twelve or thirteen years, so that one wasn't so bad at all).

    I don't need fancy in a nutshell. But I don't want long load times for general net use and simple program use either.

    I wouldn't buy anything new without 8gb of memory but thats just my opinion. Shame memory price has doubled the last few years.
