Hey there I'm looking to get a new computer because mine currently is crap. It can't even run Starcraft I, a game which was released in 1998. I have restored several times, but I think its time to get a new one. I would be getting a laptop, for obvious reasons (portability). Here are what I would use it for: -Chatting with friends -Surfing the web -Schoolwork (Microsoft Office is a must) -Some graphics (mainly GIMP. Maybe Photoshop, if I end up buying it) -Listening to music -Casual downloading -Very casual gaming. Maybe 1 or 2 games. I already have an Xbox 360 so I would use the PC for games that aren't console based (Starcraft I, Starcraft II, etc) My price range is $600-$900. I do NOT plan on getting a MacBook. Don't tell me to get a MacBook.
