You guys have always been a great help so I thought I'd ask here so that I can get her off my back once and for all.
My mother is in the market for a new desktop, and I've built my last couple desktops so I'm a bit out of the loop as far as decent non top-end desktops go.
My mom is looking for something she can do photo and video editing on, my little brother can write reports and do some gaming on (some not looking for a top end machine here). Mom was interested in a mac, but my little brother won't be able to game on that.
So any ideas on an economical/affordable, decent all around PC for a family, not a serious hardcore gamer that also makes his living on his computers like me?
Besides the usage specs I listed above, she's looking at a budget of between 500-1000 dollars, she wants to get an at least 22" monitor as well with it, we have printers and scanners already, Vista and DX10 capable, burn CDs/DVDs, and be powered by an orphan heart.
Not looking for something top of the line just something capable of those things for a family computer within that price range. Suggestions are much appreciated. And if for some reason you want to overwhelmingly recomend a mac over a PC, then my little brother can go fuck himself on the gaming thing and just use one of the consoles we own.
P.S. she already has a laptop, but for some reason has a bug up her ass now for a desktop. I told her to just stick with the laptop but she won't budge.
