    I am looking for a new PC. Does anybody know of any good deals going on right now? I'm not looking for anything special, just a good dependable pc for about $500.
    No Pak I'm not getting a MAC.

    traditionally, Dell has had a terrible reliabilty rating.
    among the worst. although maybe they have improved lately.
    I bought a new PC 2 years ago and did a ton of research at the time, and everyone said "avoid Dell like the plague"..
    but that was 2 years ago..

    I bought a HP, have used it every day for the past 2 years, and have had zero problems with it.

    here are some current ratings from PCworld:
    http://www.pcworld.com/reviews/artic...,119494,00.asp

    (hey! look at that! Dell is #1!
    that tells you what personal advice is worth!

    I dont know how "unbiased" PCworld magazine would be..since all the big computer makers are also advertisers..
    for true, unbiased reviews, your best-bet is consumer reports.
    I just checked their webpage, and you cant see reviews on-line unless you are a subscriber.
    go to the library and look for past issues of consumer reports, im sure they have done PC reviews lately..

    Uh ohhhh.... Scotty just recomended HP to Ozzy! When he asked me on IM last night I sugested Compaq (now the same as HP) and Ozzy jumped all over me. Dunno what Compaq ever did to him... I've owned Compaq for all the years I've owned computers (cept my current one that I built from scratch) and never had any problems.... Scotty was just kidding Ozzy... He wasn't recomending HP to you.... LOL

    I've a hp pavilion mx70 (at least that's what it said on the monitor) since Dec 2002. It has not had a hardware problem since I purchased it. This is the FIRST computer where I haven't had to replace parts in this length of time.

    Can't remember the price but it was much cheaper than my first computer that cost $1200 and was so much slower.

    Isn't it great that computer prices just keep dropping. Wish cars had gone down in price as most technology does over time. They'd be costing us about $1 for a new car today.
