Righty-ho, I know I have asked this question before and had a lot of help (especially from MikeT) - but due to one-thing-and-another I didn't get round to buying my new machine. :oops:
As I'm planning to buy something within the next 1-2 weeks it would be great for an update / extra help. Budget - £500-£1000
I'm looking to buy from Dell coz I just want an out of the box jobby which does all the usual bits and bobs (no gaming needs) but also Video editing and DVD authoring/burning (from analogue and digital sources) - nothing major, hobbyist type stuff.
So based on the previous info:
[* TFT - should I opt for a 20" Ultra sharp or 20" Ultra Sharp Wide aspect?
[* Tuner card - worth getting?
[* Upgrade from 2MB to 4MB?
I already have a standalone DVD-Recorder with HD (Panasonic DMREX85) so will probably transfer any vidcam footage to that and then onto a disc for use with video editing on the pc - rather than requiring a capture card for direct transfer to PC from the vidcam.
Oh, and I'm thinking of getting that new Sky package thingie, I take it all the "modern" pcs can handle the wireless router thingie they supply for broadband?
Which of the Dell machines would be best to head towards, and what specs would be good entry level and which upgrades should I consider?
I promise that this will be the last time I ask. :friends:
