Choosing a new office computer

Last response: in CPUs

I need to buy a new computer for my office and am unwilling to learn everything about computers to pick one. I don't game on it, I do use iTunes and would like DVD/CD and need several USB ports. My 2002 Gateway is slowing and I am informed that it has "swollen capacitors," indicating future trouble. I have been steered toward Gateway DX4300-15E but can't find anyone actually selling it. Also, ACER AX3950-U2042. Can anybody suggest a computer or how to go about choosing a computer??

Hello cebenn;
What budget do you want to work with? And what will you be using the computer for? Looking for a new monitor?

It looks like the Gateway DX4300-15E had been replaced in the Gateway lineup by the Gateway DX4320. Different models are being sold. Example:
Gateway DX4320-09 Athlon II X4 635(2.9GHz) 4GB RAM 1TB HDD ATI Radeon HD 5570 Graphics Card, Blu-Ray ROM, DVD Burner Win7 Home Premium 64-bit $725

Acer Aspire AX3950-U2042 Core i3 540(3.06GHz) 6GB RAM 1TB Intel GMA HD Graphics Win7 Home Premium 64-bit $585
