I bought a nice Dell a few weeks ago. I picked it based on a review a little like the link posted below.

If you plan on using Realflight or... be sure to check their recomendations. Depending on your intended use a linux laptop is a nice back up to have. I have an old Azus with ubuntu that i picked up cheap on Amazon. It is old, but keeps going and i am told they have very low risk of virus attacks. For me ubuntu linux is only usefull for internet and e mail.

thanks guy's
yes, I should have said I'm looking for a Tower, and a sim and games will not be used on it, maybe I should just buy another Asus, it's been a good computer, and a new one will only be better

thanks guys !!
got an HP on sale coming from Bestbuy ($350), twice the Ram and Disk space of the ASUS I'm typing on, that makes it's Ram 8/disk 1000, yet $90 less than I paid for this AUSU, be here on Friday,

there was a nicer HP for $430 at Staples,,, you know, it was just in the back of my head "it's better, it's better, I want it", but as said, in the end, the one I ordered it's Ram and Disk size is twice the size of this ASUS, twice the Ram> that's like talking about dog years,

OH,, lets not forget the tax ($20), we got to pay tax now when buying off the net, go figure
