Could you tell what would be the best PC to buy at a budget of £600.
have a laptop but am finding it hard on my eyes to see and as l teach online l need one that will be ok for that, use word all the time and office plus graphics and a good photo editing programn . Also a lot of of room for stored files .
The one l have just now is always going wrong but realise it was the worst make to buy Dell

Is it the laptop that is going wrong?

If not, why not buy a decent monitor for it and an external hard drive - for about £300 you could have an excellent setup.

If you want a pc, take a look at Novatech:

Add Windows and a 17inch TFT and you come in on budget

They look great , which in the verso range would you say was best.
Would love to get a external hard drive but don't think i am up to that yet, laptop was bought last july , been back every two months as when typing in word or emails the words jump about and your re- writing all the time.
The dell pc that l am having to use crashes and last week the desktop turned right, xp hills were up the right side and sky up left, you need a head on a turntable, have to get it in safe mode then do a system restore and it lasts a bit longer but with teaching l need one that l can trust.

Try installing an external mouse and disabling the touchpad.

To be hoest, I'd avoid the verso range as they are very limited...

Came across a computer at work a while ago where a key combination of Alt+Left/Right Cursor Key would rotate the desktop (might have been Ctrl+Left/Right Cursor Key, can't just remember now).

Might be worth trying it to see if this is what's happening on yours?

Both are very good.

Just been looking at them all and now don't know what to get but the last link you gave me looked good as l liked the way they worded every and no one pushing you so think it might be there l get one.
My previous mail was about avg and zone uploading every week, has anyone else had this,
Thanks to you all

Tried what you said but didn't work but it was a shock when it happened, blamed it on using graphics for hours, but have lousy eyesight anyway so looking on the side was alfull but as l hadn't heard of it l thought it was a big fault so it was quite a surprise to get it straight so quick.
Another thing l would like to ask all of you as long as you don't mind is that l am trying to save up for a tablet pc as l cannot carry laptop about and in summer l work outside.

Tracked down the computer I refered to in my previous post, the key combination is: AltGr+Left/Right Cursor

Just tried it and you can rotate the screen through 360 degrees, 90 at a time... :-)
