Hello, a year ago I bought the HP P7-1234 from Best Buy. The computer starting having issues, so they "fixed" it for free under the service plan. It's still acting up and I don't have time to be without a computer mid-semester. I'm going on Friday to get a replacement, but I'm torn.
I definitely want a desktop and my budget is $500. The one I already have got great reviews so I'm considering getting the same one again, but this marks the third bad experience I've had with HP. I spotted the Dell I660S-1540BK and it got great reviews at a great price. I'm really looking for something for college with a decent memory and that will last a long time. Any suggestions?
Not sure if you have time to order one and have it delivered though. The one you listed is probably a pretty standard machine, that hopefully would last you for a while. It's hard to say with these systems sometimes. Bummer about your experience with HP.
