I need to purchase a PC
« on: May 22, 2014, 20:56 »
Hi guys, it seems so long since I dabbled with the PC that I feel quite the novice!  :dunno:

I would be grateful for your advice on the best way forward as I need to purchase a desk top PC. Can you recommend a decent spec at the most economical price please to run home office with wifi card, Microsoft office, fast processor etc... the usual stuff

Thanks xx

I've not been in the market for years, Bev, so I'm not really up to date with current specs, but, depending on your budget, something like this would probably be OK:

Although I've never bought a PC from them, I've bought several components from CCL, and always found them reliable.

I bought a laptop from these people recently and so far i'm really pleased with it. They also do a large range of very customisable desktops. Also Novatech are supposed to be good, although i've never used them myself.

Thanks both, much appreciated  :) I'll take a close look at both sites to see which would be the best option for me. 

Would you know other than Amazon, the best and most economical site to purchase Microsoft Office 2010?
