Which you think is the best Desktop PC to buy?

We are looking to buy couple of new Desktop PCs to replace our current outdated ones.
And we are wondering which is the best Desktop PC to buy?
Also please factor in your reply the Support, since as we all know things will inevitably go wrong with a PC so it is vital to have good Support, included with the purchase price and at no extra charge. Much Thanks.

I used to only sell Dell computers a few years back. While their 1st Tier support (like most others) has moved overseas to India, they did a pretty good job and honored the warranty (hardware). I have a friend who is a Dell reseller and still prefers them.

HP has offered some decent PC's, but I never liked the overall build. I've owned Acer and Asus laptops, but again my personal experience has been mixed.

I have heard very bad stories about Dell PCs and their support coming out of India now. People tell me their support sucks now. So!

Who are you hearing this from? I just spoke to my friend who just installed 200 Dell's Business Class PC's and he says the PC's are great and he's never had a problem with support.

If you are speaking to folks who are purchasing the "consumer" version of Dell (or any PC for that matter) the story may be different. I used Dells for 15 years and only had 3 or 4 that required service out of hundreds of installations. Whatever you do don't buy consumer grade PC's - go with Dell Business PC's.

BTW we've both been in the business over 30 years. While it's been a few years since I've sold Dell I trust my friend to give the latest and best info.

Most of the Business Class Dell's will come with a one-year or three-year support. You really cannot go wrong.

Just don't buy the computer from Best Buy or Walmart - these are not the same class of computer as Dell's Business PC's.

Dell are for PPL that know nothing about Computers. A quality PC dose not have a Dell badge. Dell make you buy parts from them cheap parts that have short life for big money. you can not upgrade a Dell PC Supply because when it is out of date Dell want to sell you a new one. They customer support is no existent unless you are willing to spend money. Business or otherwise

As a former manufacturer of PC's for schools and the aviation industry (United, American Airlines and others) I can tell you that I know PC's. I've seen tons of junk PC's built by the small shops. As Kronos_cfect has mentioned, all the small PC shops in his area are gone.

The Dell Business PC's are decent computers and parts are available for years - I've see Optiplex that are 6+ years still going strong. With 60+ total years of experienced techs here, waycool6 is simply wrong.

All you've done is make derogatory remarks about Dell without giving any supporting statements.

Your going to tell my Dell clients (who love their computers) and have had nothing but a good experience that they are "primary school kids?" I don't think so.

I just worked on a Dell PowerEdge Server yesterday that required new PERC batteries for a National Foundry & Pipe Manufacturer - the server is still going strong after 10 years and their other Dells are working well too.

Out of the brands listed I would say Assus very good customer support very excisable replacement parts. Can be upgraded so more cost infective. But If it was me I would build my own it takes time but you can build a PC for les than half the price of any of the big brands and get a faster better PC all round.

Well we cannot build our own PC. So that is out of question.
Hey, if you start building PC, may be then we will buy it from you :)
Otherwise, your Vote for Assus is noted. Thanks.

I build and repair PC for a living I am in the UK. I can also provide OS windows 10 under licence. A good starting budget would be £300 parts only but it can be dune for £150 but it would be very basic.

That sounds way cool that U2 can build your PC. I guess there are lots of Super Geeks here. But I am afraid for 99% of People building their own PC is not a viable option.

P.S., Who is going to win the UK election? I hope not that May lady :)
