Hi. I'm looking to purchase a new computer and I have many choices out there. However, I don't know what type of computer should I buy. Any suggestions please. If possible could you also specify the processor speed as well and the type of processor?

If you are buying desktop pc.Then i will suggest you to buy assemble pc.Its far better than branded pc.Buy best component and assemble it.It will be cheap also.Best motherboard will be intel original latest series.Core 2 duo or dual core and have a 4 gb ram with 250 gb hard drive if you want more you can add more.

I really don't have the time assemble a PC computer right now. I'm actually leaning towards buying a complete unit. Thanks for the info though.

There're many factors to count on, but it depends on your usage. The processor is the most important. I think the current standard processor is Intel Pentium duo core, it's really better than mono core in exchanging algorithms. If you have to use very many tasks at the same time, you can choose the quad core (= 2 dou core) but I think it's not necessary. But for simple applications, I think Intel Celeron is ok. The standard RAM is 2Mb. It's helpful for heavy tasks: video games, online programs, home cinema, programmations. The next factor is storage: ask your self. The weight: it's important for women (if you are), a 2.4 kg laptop is different a 3.2 kg one if you use it for a long time. Now, the brand: it depends on you too. For non-professional person, the brand is not important, choose the cheapest laptop for you. Otherwise, I can give you some following info: Sony vaio: the favorite for infomaticians. The screen's resolution, the functions, the cover,... all are impeccable, and of course, the price are high. Dell is good though it seem ugly and it's heavy. Toshiba, Fujitsu-Siemens, IBM: they're good. The graphics are a little weaker than Sony, but the price is much more cute. Remark for IBM: the keyboard is more sensitive than the two remainings, but the keys' size is not very compatible. It makes your fingers work harder, unless you use less than 5/10 fingers. Compaq HQ, Lenovo: the technique parameters are less good than the above series, but the physical factor is impressive. If a HQ falls from the height of 1m, it's still not broken, haha. However, that's why HQ and Lenovo are weaker under the hot weather. For the others series, I just can say they're cheap, maybe I'm not impressived by them. Good luck.

I think you should go for custom PC...if you want a powerful PC, then it will generally consist of the following: [b]Motherboard having 256MB inbuilt graphics memory(if u don't wanna buy a new graphic card) CPU - Intel Core 2 Duo/Intel Quad Core/AMD X2 @ 2.2GHz/2.8GHz/3.2GHz Graphic Card(if your motherboard's inbuilt graphics memory is 128MB or less) - Nvidia/Geforce having 512MB graphics memory for playing new generation games like GTA IV, Assasins Creed etc. RAM - 1GB(Windows XP/Vista), 2GB(Windows 7)[/b] So, these are the few things you should keep in mind while buying/customizing PC...[:)]
