Compact PC Buyers Guide
Don't believe the hype and think that you have to buy a future proofed umpteen hundred megahertz PC.
Identify your requirements then buy a PC to match those.
The world's business organisations are still using older PCs so unless blasting Aliens, creating huge databases or editing videos are essential then a second hand Pentium will do just fine.
If you want to play games, buy a games console.
** Did you know that a quality PC graphics card costs as much as a whole games console!!
When you do look for a PC, remember:
Get the best quality and largest screen you can afford - less eye strain
RAM is more important than CPU speed!
