New Computer, what should I get?

632 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  HugoMD
I'm looking at buying a new computer around 700 USD.

I was wondering what would be the best to get around that price range? It needs to be fast, have pretty good graphics and the hard drive size doesn't really matter as I have an external terra-byte.

I'm no expert, in fact, I have a thread similar to yours asking advice on buying a new computer. Got no replies in one day. I don't want you to share my fate, so I'll just throw in this option for you (it's one of mine as well; we're in a similar price range here)
* Model: Toshiba Satellite A505-S6012
* Display: 16" HD+ Glossy (1366x768)
* CPU: Intel® Core i3-330M 2.13 GHz
* RAM: 4GB DDR3 1066MHz
* HDD: 500GB HDD (5400rpm)
* CD: Blu-ray Disc™ ROM and DVD SuperMulti drive with Labelflash
* Wireless: Wi-Fi® Wireless networking (802.11b/g/n) (No Bluetooth)
* USB 2.0 only
* Price+Shipping: $669.99

Not too shabby. The only thing I'm concerned about is if USB 3.0 is going to become standard in the next few years. Intel i3 is good, but i5 is a little better. Those are the only drawbacks, otherwise this is a killer machine for its price.

That's a great price! I'll certainly look into it! Thanks :)

I'm not sure it'll ship to where I live but I can always pick it up somewhere else when I go home for Christmas.
