Help me replace my Desktop for under $200

891 221 July 9, 2018 at 06:24 AM Get Newegg coupons Coupons
I have this an Acer Aspire Desktop PC with Intel Celeron Quad Core J1900 2.00GHz (2.42Ghz Burst), 4GB DDR3 RAM, 1TB HDD — https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16883103927?nm_mc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel&cm_mmc=TEMC-RMA-Approvel-_-Content-_-text-_- — that used to work great for a living room PC hooked up to a 55" TV I could access with Bluetooth on my couch:

Spotify
Netflix
VLC
YouTube

No gaming.. just basic media consumption and web browsing.

It's gotten extremely slow lately, and it's 4 years old, so if there are any deals out there that allow me to replace this for under $200 please help!

I don't need Wireless (it will be Wired into the router), I don't want an optical drive, and I don't need a huge hard drive as all of my media is on an external or streaming. Speed and ease of use is the name of the game.

Thanks for the help!!!

Maybe you just need to cleanup and tweak your current PC.

Get the trial version of Malwarebytes and Zemana, so that all of the features work.

Just back up whatever you need, give that beast a fresh windows install & if you really want to speed that dinosaur up at all remove that slow af 1tb hdd and purchase a solid state drive. Throw and extra money you might have budgeted towards a lil extra ram. The sdd will help tremendously tho, and you'll have a machine thatll beat anything in the $200 range

I suggest you go check craigslist, ebay, or Amazon. There are a lot of deals out there under $200.
