So heres the deal: I've been working since the end of school to pay for my car's insurance (I'm 17). The main thing is, I'm just about at the full year price of the insurance (Or at least my third).
In the 3 weeks I've been working I've mananged to amass $1000 give or take to pay for it.
So, seeing as how I have no other monetary needs at the moment, I plan on saving for a laptop, to be purchased in the next month or so, meaning by August i'd have about $1,400.
Now, some I'd like to put away for college, but I'll keep working after that.
So, I have NO clue what really is good in terms of computer parts (I understand the BASICS, and very basicly kind of basics, too), so I could use some help from you smarties.
I'm looking for Vista (Most any build will do), that can run things like photoshop and the like fairly well, and also play some recent games (I'd like to try Halo 2 Vista and Shadowrun on PC), with a price range of, at maximum, $1,200.
Think you guys can help?
Edit: I will also consider a Desktop for the sake of getting a good computer for less money.
