Help me design my new computer
I am currently using a very old Dell Dimension 9200 Desktop System with Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3 (all up to date).
Because of the age of the system & the coming end of support for XP, I have decided that the time to do something is now.
I have an iPhone 4S & I also sometimes use my wife's iPad 3 and am comfortable using those.
But I feel that since I use the Desktop for business, I need to get another Desktop and not a laptop, tablet, etc.
I am however starting to retire a little at a time (self-employed) & may not be in business for more than a couple or 3 years more (or even less than that).
My profession has a large group contract with Dell, so I also see no reason not to stick with Dell.
I am also thinking that my current 21" Monitor could be used on a new system so I could have dual monitors.
It also seems that a lot of the new Desktop Systems still come with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8.
I did NOT get a new system at the end of 2012 because of Windows 8 having just come out - but I would have thought that by now, every new system would come with only Windows 8.
I do NOT plan on using the touch screen capabilities for my Desktop, but still think I should get Windows 8 for no reason other than not having to upgrade later.
