    He's driving me crazy! He keeps asking me what he should buy, and I know NOTHING about that kind of stuff. So I'm turning to all you fine, intelligent people. What kind of computer should he get?

    I missed the poll! It's a G5. The HD is in the 20 some inch monitor. CD, DVD's, go right in slot. Movies are easy to watch, if I sit at desk, not from sofa. Mine is 'pre-Intel', which may or may not be good, **no viruses**, but the Intel makes faster, so I've been told. I have High speed connection, fast enough.

    Much fewer pop ups, so far no viruses, biggest improvement for me over the PC. The only thing I do not like is the mouse, no right/left click, plus side of it though, 'squeez' to see all my windows.

    Looked at the poll, like I said, my screen is 20 something, flat. I got the HP PSC 1610 All In One printer with it, plus anti-virus, MS Office for Teachers=$1450.

    I am a fan of custom made pcs.

    I like to play games. So its the only way to go bang for the bucks.

    Put your own pc together, Graphic card is the most important (expensive)
    issue to look at.

    For a big company Dell really does treat their customers right. They don't give you a 'boot disk' with a ton of Dell-specific hardware, they give you the XP that goes with the computer. If you want to upgrade they allow you to do it yourself without killing the warranty. They are more cost effective than I can be with a small company (I know this because they killed my business).

    I help a blind dude that gets all his computers from Dell, they are a very good company to go with when seeking a new computer (bastards!).
