Hey guys well heres the story. My girlfriend's mother is buying her a computer within the next week. She has a $1200 budget which I think is a pretty damn good to spend on a computer. I think the computer will be used basically for internet, typing term papers, dling music, some programs for schools(not too crazy programs which take up tons of space), saving photos, and listening to music. If I find out more I will post. She wants tons of memory and a fasting running processor. I know basically every computer company makes computer that do this, bit any recommendations that fit the $1200 budget and will do what I listed. Also any computer to stay away from will do great.
