New PC

  Stevo74 10:01 18 Mar 2008


My parents have asked me to research what would be a good PC for them to buy (Talk about the blind leadind the blind).

What they are looking for is one that can be used in the lounge and they really like the look of the multi media functionality.

So a few things I think they will need are:

Vista Home Premium
2GB Ram
350 GB Harddrive
Connect to TV (Non HD)
Multi USD 4+
Wireless Keyboard + Mouse
Wireless Connection to Internet

An optional reuirement is surround sound, it it possible to get this wireless???

Much appreciated if someone can throw a few ideas for what machines they reckon would be suitable. Budget is about £1,500

worth looking at the PCA reviews either on this site or in mag. It will give you a good idea of what you will get at several price breaks.

My feeling for what you need you will be able to save some money on your budget.

Also a major consideration is to make sure you go for a decent supplier. Have a look at the Consumerwatch forum, and you can pick the ones to steer clear from.
