Can't choose

Postby hev » Mon Dec 12, 2011 10:50 pm

I'm hoping this is the right place to post. I bought a laptop, I hate it, I knew I would, I just don't like laptops, and it's slow. But let's not go there.

I want to get a desktop instead and I can't choose which one. A dell ot HP.

They are basically the same price, the Dell has a faster CPU and better graphics card, one yr less warranty, 2bg less RAM and 1/2 less hard drive and no card reader.

I hope to get replies, I have to choose within the next 7 hours.

I would prefer the hp machine myself, take the free upgrades and get a decent antivirus. Norton isnt one of them. All that dell software is complete shit and i wouldnt waste my time on it so dont let it sway your decision any.

ps, the difference in the cpu's and vid cards.....

The dell isnt fast enough of a difference to ever see with anything you will do. Your talking 400MHz cpu difference, the only thing that will notice that would be a benchmark test.

The extra 2 gigs memory, blue ray player and much much larger hdd is the winner to me.
