Guys, can you all recommend me a Brand of COmputer thats trustable for photo editing? with a good and fast processor and Ram? I've tried custom building one but didnt last too well and the shop i did it at is no longer there. So suck thumb. I'd like to get sth like maybe HP or acer. Which ever is recommended. At least it has a company warranty. Any advise?

Between HP and Acer, go for HP. Better warranty support IMO.

You looking for a desktop or a laptop?

Chris ... i refer to today's The Straits Times .... got new CPU from Lenovo, around $1,500.
take a look.
I was thinking of getting a OEM but still think a branded PC is more reliable for ppl like us ....:think:

Well, if you want performance, you can check out the HP personal workstations, great performance plus lots of expansion bays (for more memory and more HDD).

Hmmmm IBM ws bought over by Lenovo leh. Not too sure abt the quality. :dunno:

I've seen the HP M7599D. Looks pretty impressive. But without the monitor its retailing at 2099. With mon is at 2499. Just unsure if its a worth investment to pump that much money into a CPU. :think:

:bsmilie: I dun fancy IBM too. Had bad experience with it before. I've been kinda advised again Acer. Apparently it was mentioned that when sth goes wrong. All the ports will automatically disable. So its like rendering the whole com not usable.

If IBM must go for their T series. I just upgraded from T42 to T60 sayang my existing Port replicator II that I use with T42 cannot be used on T60.

i would suggest you go with a friend that knows about computer hardware. Head down to one of the more reliable shops in SLS, and buy the branded parts and pay the shop to fixup the computer parts. usually its much more worth it.

As for the branded name PC maker, i would advise you to ask them about the warrently part.

Bro, wat's ur budget first of all? Are u looking at AMD or Intel? C2D (Core 2 Dual) or jus CD (Core Dual)? If u looking at "Branded" desktop, i will recommend HP Pavillion (but nt HP Compaq). Acer may look gd in terms of price and system, but their after sales service is not as reponsive as HP's. U can contact me if u intend to get a DIY. :think:

What iria mentioned is correct, from the "branded" PC maker, not all parts are covered under their warranty. If say ur OS gts corrupted or missing files, they will service with a OS charge, as OS not covered under warranty.

I have this one in my office...upgraded CPU to E6400, 1GB ram and 250GB x2 in raid 1 mode.....very impressed by the speed and quiteness.....but I won't buy one for personal use.....I prefer DIY becoz for the same money probably I can build something more powerful :lovegrin:

wohoooo, one of my school lab upgrade to that... but with 3GB of ram... :cool:
but too bad that lab is mainly for multimedia student :cry: no doubt it is quiet, but then again i think msot core2duo com are quiet since the fans doesn't have to run that fast even at full load.

suggest you get a DIY to save cost.

the issue of lagging is due to poor maintainence of OS.

so get 2 or 3 hdd to save the hassle.

1 OS and a few more hdd for photos and stuff.

PM me so can discuss more :D
