I need a computer that can play games and causal internet use. It needs to last about maybe 2-3 years before requiring an upgrade.
I don't know if I need a good graphic card because there is not going to be hardcore gaming. The games will probably be sims and some flash games. All played in low-mid graphic settings.
It's for my mother and I haven't decided if laptop or desktop would be better. I want her to have mobility but at the same time be able to keep up with technology for the next 2-3 years. I don't want to tell her to get a hardcore gaming machine but then again I don't want to get her soemthing that will be outdated in 2-3 years.
I would perfer a laptop but if a desktop is better option for price/upgrade/speed then that is perfered.
Any thoughts? Thanks
I recommend you check out the Dell Studio 15. It has a fast processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 500 GB of hard drive space. It is great for basic tasks and for watching DVDs and listening to music. It is also very affordable at $649. What do you think?
