Haven't told them of the new purchase yet. When it is delivered next week, will find out how it goes.

Need help replacing 8 year old desktop - GOT ONE - Thanks
Got one Dell Inspiron 2020 from this hot deal.. I know they didn't want Dell. But, price was too good for me to refuse this deal.
Couldn't wait to get confirmation from my family as I already had one in my cart and someone in that thread reported OOS. So I went ahead with the purchase. If they don't want, I'll keep this one. This is great for small places + every day computing.

Thank you oyouno.
I guess the HDMI and wi-fi are not a must haves.
How long does it take for the woot deal to come if it is ordered today? I will ask if they want that one. However, they want to stay away from refurb. I told them to hold off a week or two until something comes up. However, they want to replace the computer this week.
Edit: never mind about the woot. it's sold out anyway -

That Lenovo H430 deal is really good for your needs. Check to see if your local staples has it for pickup. I just checked mine and there are some instock near me, so might be worth checking out.
Also, even the h430 deal, you would need to buy a wireless card/adapter, Most desktops do not come with them already installed.
4gb would be fine.
Also I would highly recommend checking out lenovo outlet at refurbished items, When they are on sale you can find good deals.
HP p6-2378 AMD A8 8GB 1TB Win 8 HP Pavilion P6-2378 Desktop, AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB SATA, USB 3.0, Radeon HD 7560D, Win 8 (Refurbished)
This one is really good too for the price as well. But refurbished. If you have a credit card that doubles warranties then use it to buy it to double the 90day warranty to 180day.
But you would still need to buy a wireless adapter (15-20) and a dvi-hdmi adapter (usually like 2dollars on ebay)

Need help replacing 8 year old desktop
Need to replace an eight year old Dell desktop computer for family member. It crashes atleast few times a day. The replacement will primarly used for internet browsing, emails, and their kid doing homework online. it will not be used for playing games or anything like that.
I have an old HP P6720f from 2 years ago and they like that and want something similar to that.
They want something in <$350 range. I was checking hotdeals computer forum and there are many different models and CPUs......it makes me dizzy
What they do not want:
No Dell!! They are done with it!! I don't blaim them.
No computer where they have to open and upgrade HD, memory, etc
What they want:
Be able to run microsoft office 2010 without any issue
Question: Would 4GB memory sufficient or should they get atleast something with 6GB?
I saw the Lenovo H430 deal for $274. But, I think that's over. It is currently still on sale for $350. With tax, it will be slightly higher. Would you think this is good price for a desktop?
If it helps, I get AMEX Open discount at HP and OfficeMax (I think it is 5% or 10%). If I can get cheaper deal there, I would like to help them get the cost down little bit.
Please suggest Desktop to me.
