Specs: xpsp3, 1 gb
I am posting here because I hope someone can direct me on which one to buy, I don't have a lot of space (I live in a Trailer) pretty big but as far as room I need a small computer not a laptop, I want it pretty fast pretty good graphics, decent amount of hard drive Best Buy has several I am just so confused on which of the two is better, I am not a gammer nor do I want to pay the price for that kind of computer, Best buy has a Acer http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage... for 369 + 19" monitor for 99 and a Dell http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage... 99.00 for Monitor and Walmart has a All in one Dell for http://www.walmart.com/catalog/prod... 848.00, I know this is a pain but I am so confused on the types of computers and hope that you can help me or give me a suggestion, these have Vista and will be able to get the Windows 7 upgrade free, I have Xp Now and don't know which one will run Vista good ?

Your 2nd Bestbuy link doesn't work but why would you even consider $850 for the Dell? You also need to consider "repairablity". Do you think parts for that "all in one" Dell will be easy to get?

$850 is about twice as much as you should have to pay for a decent machine. Like jam says, there are other things to consider. If size is a factor, then Google "SFF Computer" (small form-factor)...

Like both the others have said there are more things to look at besides just price and space.

You say you are not a gammer, ok what would it be used for? What do you actually need in a computer? Is this a long term investment or will you be buying another in a year or so (upgrade ability). Regardless I think the Dell is way over priced as well. If you are not the type of person to tear into and work on it your self what kind of warrenty and where can you have it fixed?

Likely

Practice makes perfect but only if you practice perfectly!
