We have two PCs in our household--a Dell Precision 450, and an HP p6754y--but we no longer use the Dell, because it is incredibly slow, and basically good for nothing. From what I have gleaned through Internet searching, this Dell model should be a decent computer, and seems comparable (if not better?), than the HP...so, my question is: why does my HP work relatively smoothly, while the Dell is relatively worthless? Am I mistaken in my understanding that this Dell should be sufficient for moderate gaming (minecraft, facebook games, etc.), and otherwise novice-grade usage (Internet-surfing, MS Word, etc.)? Should I scrap this Dell and buy some other used PC, or is there some simple answer that I am just too ignorant to see? If I should buy something else, what is a good recommendation? Also, if I'm replacing the Dell, my preference would be to go to a laptop, but only if it can be done cheaply, and without losing the speed, capacity, etc. necessary for my aforementioned needs.
