My desktop computer is ancient and pretty much never works anymore. Its an old HP (like 10 years old) and I am in the market for a replacement. The problem is, I know jack shit about computers. I know some of you guys work in computer tech stuff so I figured I might be able to get some sound advice. What I need is a PC that I can use for internet browsing and some storage of pictures, videos, music, etc. From what I can tell even the cheapest entry level computers are light years beyond what I have now so Im thinking that's all I need. I already have a nice monitor, keyboard, and sound system so I just need the tower. Any brands to stay away from? Where to buy from? Any way to get a new device without a bunch of bullshit antivirus stuff loaded on it? (my wifes laptop is pretty new and it has annoying antivirus stuff on it that I cant seem to get rid of) Im not real excited about learning windows 8 either, but doesn't look like I have much choice... thanks in advance for any advice!
