I am pondering buying a new computer for around 500 bucks. I need to use autocad and office (excel really). The problem is my current computer hangs like a mofo doing most things. I did run antivirus & antispyware so I suspect my current pc is clean. Here are the specs on my current laptop
1.06ghz intel core 2 duo 2gb ram winxp professional with office 2007
The pc I am looking at is a desktop with amd dual core 2.8ghz with 4gb ram and win vista 64bit.
My only problem with going with the desktop is money is tight and I can always go on campus and use their PCs. I do drive 25 miles 1 way to get to campus though, which means I use almost 2 gallons of gas on one commute. So what would you do?
