If you know how or know people who know how to make computers, make your own. If you don't, buy a pc fromDell or try ABS Computers

I built my mom a real nice system for $1000. Could have sold for $2500. I really suggest you building your own, it really isnt difficult there are lots of web pages to guide you through it.

A year ago I might have said build, today I say dell.

My first PC was ABS, I bought from them when they were the cheapest around, before anyone knew about them. It was decent, but the customer support SUCKED, hopefully they have changed.

if you don't go with self-buld..try www.ibuypower.com fast, and simply the best pre-built prices you'll find anywhere.

Honestly, all it takes to build a computer is confidence and some care. If you want to go that route (waaaaay cheaper and a lot more fun) you can find tons of help for problems online.

Or you can go to Reseller Ratings to find a good reliable company that sells computer parts or computers.

most systems (at least the start from a build ones, not the 400 base build yourself ones) do include a monitor, its usually a 19 inch viewsonic. If there isn't one listed, you need to pick one, yes.

Edit - I should add personally i have never purchased an ibuypower computer, however I have heard nothing but positive comments, and they have a solid number 9.6..or so, on resellerrankings.

Did I mention typing on a laptop is a pain in the ass?
