I work with computers all the time and have built many, many computers. I suggest that if you want a laptop computer you go with a nice dual core computer, try to stay with Hp and other big brands, except for dell. if you want a desktop, that is where the value is. There is a large list of items you will need to get to build a computer. It isn't very hard as long as you have someone who knows how to do it.( I can help if you need it). The site to buy all of the computer hardware at is newegg.c(o)m (not advertising, just info). They are the main computer parts site with the best deals. If you would like some more information just pm me.
