    need a new desktop comp. main requirement is that it needs to be small. won't be doing any gaming. so i don't need a powerhouse, but not a piece of junk. is there any better option than a dell studio desktop?

    Yes, yes there is but I can't be bothered looking. The studios do look kinda nice though :eek3:

    If all you want is small, why not look at a laptop?

    Those dells look pretty slick. Has anyone had any success with the Shuttle pcs? I always liked the size on those.

    I built a shuttle PC about 6 months ago. It runs Vista Ultimate great.

    I went with this with an E2180 and 2 gigs RAM.

    I bought the PC, processor, RAM, and hard drive for ~$415 out the door...

    well i am not the biggest fan of dell either. but it looks like it would fit the bill. just wondering if there is anything comparable out there.


    i was planning on building my own, but i have never built a computer before.

    What do you mean all in one computer?

    If you aren't going to build one, I'd recommend a Dell...

    computer and monitor integrated together. the good thing is they tend to be cheaper than a computer and monitor seperate. the bad thing is that if the computer goes bad or the monitor goes bad and you are out of warrantee, you have to dispose of both. Dell XPS One, Apple iMac and Gateway One are all all-in-one systems.
