    I just hired a couple new guys and I need to buy them computers. Our needs are very basic: We use MS Office, the Martindale-Hubble Database system that is basically a paid subscription of CDs. We store a lot of Word, Excel and .pdf documents - several hundred each.
    Also, I have kind of a weird corporate culture. We talk to attorneys all day and that can be a tad trying at times. So I'm completely okay with the guys taking 30 - 90 minutes and just goofing off and playing video games when they're feeling frustrated. So it would be good if the computer could run the latest and greatest version of Doom or whatever people play nowadays.
    We're wireless if that makes a difference.
    So I don't think I need to buy the latest and greatest. I just need something that is functional.
    I've had good luck with Dells but am open to you Jedi wisdom...

    Oh yeah! I want a new monitor for me! It seems like the cost of a 25" monitor is about the same as a 25" TV that I could just plug my computer into and use as a monitor. Thoughts?

    Google " all in one comparisons". Personally, buy some iMacs and tell your idiots to play their little boy games at home.

    Talk to a good computer service company, tell them your needs, and they'll build them from the ground up.

    Just tell them you want everything to be Sony-Beta state-of-the-art type stuff. That'll let 'em know you're a semi-serious tech guy yourself, and thus no easy mark should your path unfortunately cross with that of some unscrupulous predator trolling the marketplace.

    Sounds like your operation is being run out of a FEMA trailer, probably with AOL and dial-up. Ask Obama for a small business loan, asswipe
