@ssully: Chrimebooks aren't quite what I'm looking for, my girlfriend has one and I really hate it. The OS is pretty awful (I just like windows) I couldn't download iTunes to it. Or Minecraft even and I couldn't watch giantbomb videos in the highest setting. Just wasn't for me, it felt like an iPad with a keyboard.
Maybe I should have been a bit clear, what I ment by not playing games on ot I still would like it to run WoW, but I don't care about graphic I just ment I don't want anything that's going to run console games (like steam stuff) on max highest settings, I still want a PC. Maybe to check out indie games I can't get on console.
Let's pretend I'm 4 years old and don't understand computer terms and what they mean. Now pretend I'm 23 and have a budget of $500 and haven't owned a computer in about 2 years and I'm finally sick of using my iphone for everything I do online.
Here's the breakdown. I want a PC, I don't like Macs. I want it to run well enough, it doesn't have to be gaming focused as I don't play PC games, but I would like it to run java/flash as I stream a lot of video and I would like it to look nice.
Honestly I know nothing about ram or processors and what any of that means, so I get really overwhelmed when I look on amazon and I see all these stats and I don't truly know what I'm paying for.
I had something similar happen to a laptop I ordered on Amazon, it was said to be delivered around 6:30 pm (on the date it was set to arrive), It wasn't at my door, I was going nuts, I thought someone snagged it. I live on a third floor apartment and often UPS delivers to the first floor, he won't walk it up to mine. I called UPS and the person said they would contact the driver. Turns out he marked it that he delivered it but didn't actually make it to my building for the day so I had him come back and give it to me, it took about 2 hours but I got it. I hope that asshole got fired.
