Hi folk I am looking to buy a small PC for use by my mother, all i need is Windows XP, a DVD writer, and USB ports, which is nearly always standard. It need to be space saving and NOT an Apple. Something build into a monitor would be nice but i have not noticed any of these about apart from Apples. I dont really want a laptop, a nice cheap PC is what i need, hopefully for well under 500 quid.
I have saw some PC's in my local hospital and clinic which the monitor sort of hooks onto the front of the small PC box with a side loading CD drive a bit like if you place the PS2 on its side.
i've tried every one of the above click here recommendations - all have terrible backup if something goes wrong. I bought a new Fujitsu PC from PC World in Jan - it wasn't the cheapest and the TV card didn't work when I got it, however, their telephone support was fantastic and they sent a guy round within a week who replaced the card in five minutes. He was on time and very polite. This is your mother remember!!
