I am thinking of buying a new desktop PC in the new year - preferably in the January sales, when hopefully they will be cheaper! What things, apart from the obvious such as printer, should I look for, which could be included in the total price, when buying my new PC? What about software, and any other hardware, such as a scanner?
Also, would it be cheaper to buy over the internet or go to a shop? Personally, I would prefer going into a shop and talking face to face with a sales assistant, so that I know exactly what I am buying.
Finally, do you think I should buy a popular make such as Dell or HP etc, or just buy a cheap make?
