Windows 7: Which PC is the better deal?

24 Jun 2012   #11

MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

I have had nothing but positive experiences with ASUS hardware.

I can not say the same for HP.

I buy based upon the company, their performance, support and documentation.

My nod goes to ASUS.

Failed to mention, I'm not a fan of Best Buy, although they quite often have good prices.

Also a vote for ASUS, the Athlon is a more solid better performing CPU and it's board can be upgraded to 16GB of RAM. I think 8GB would be perfect since it will share RAM with graphics.

ASUS support is hit and miss, but their hardware in my experience is generally very good. I think Best Buy will do an even exchange for 30 days and an extended warranty may be a good idea but read the fine print.

The Athlon processor may be 3 times more powerful than the othe one.
I don't know the actual processor, but it may be the Athlon 240 Regor 2.8ghz processor.
Passmark rates it at 1595, And the other one comes in at 595.
