7 years back is the first generation of P4, If you have use it till now then I would say your not using resources hungry programs. Base on this you don't need a powerful computer, even dual core system if still available in your area will be enough for your needs. You would have more options if you would assemble it yourself than going to branded complete setup. This is of course if you're not planning of going to Vista.

Personally, I would suggest buying a pre-assembled Gateway computer. I wouldn't go with Dell or Compaq.

Dell has actually become a great company in the last few years. I would highly recommened buying from them they use good hardware, have the best customer service and a ton of coupons which you can find by simply googling dell coupons. As far as Compaq I don't really know. They were bought out by HP a while back which is a respectable company but that doesn't mean they are up to the same quality as HP branded things. I am currently using a Compaq laptop, not that I would normally buy or concider buying Compaq but it was $550 off an $800 laptop on Black Friday.

I don't like Dell because of their customer service. I used to work for the relay for the deaf and hard-of-hearing and had to place many tech support calls to Dell. If you are English-speaking, their reps are very hard to understand because Dell outsources their tech support to other countries. Most of the time, the reps don't even know what you're talking about. I usually make it a point to not use companies that outsource the bulk of their customer support or tech support whenever possible. As far as Compaq, I have had a Compaq system and it was ok...not great, just ok. It will most likely work for a couple of years and then you'll have to buy a whole new system. As far as Compaq being bought out by HP, that makes me like them even less. I have had terrible experiences with HP products in the past and will not buy anything made by HP because of those experiences. I have had a lot of success with Gateway systems and, suprisingly, have had good experiences with my Acer laptop, which is built using primarily Toshiba parts. I can only speak from my personal experience, but if you're only looking for a computer to hold you through for a couple of yours and don't care about being able to communicate with tech support, you could go with Compaq or Dell.

I would suggest buying a quad-core computer as they are now very economical. Newegg and TigerDirect are two great sources for computers. They have different deals every day as well as everyday low prices. If you have to ability to build a computer or know someone who can that is the cheapest way to go. You can build one that is top of the line for $500-$600. If you do or know someone who has the ability to build a computer let me know and I could get a build list for a good quality, cheap computer.

If u wanna buy a branded company pc, then go for DELL desktops. And for assembled, u have a store of products to choose from.

You need to think of budget if it is around 35k then go for laptop its good to have it and it is trendy now a days if your budget is not so much then go for assembled ones so that you can choose all things of your own choice and you would get it in 20k to 25k

I recently bought a Dell computer and am very content. Have only had it 4 months so it's tough to say whether or not it will give me the service I require for the next few years. I only bought the tower since my keyboard, mouse and speakers are new. The bigger screen is old but works fine.

I would start with a BUDGET first, just do that, then decide what to get within it. Also - the top things to spend on for me are the SCREEN (19" min), MOUSE (comfort), and KEYBOARD (comfort) because all of these make the experience more pleasant above the actual CPU etc.... Next for money would be speakers, if you watch movies or play music - then rest of budget to get bast system you can afford. Here I would personally consider how loud the system runs as buzzing computers annoy the heck out of me. This has led me to build my own, but you do nto have to do that. Also consider if you wish to be trapped within M$, because going Linux can save you a good few bucks on the price.
