What computer would you guys buy right now for your business? Any good ones at Best Buy?
No one can answer that. You need to get a computer based on your needs.
For example, if you want to use it for video editing you would need a better GPU and SSD.
If your looking to game you might want a good CPU, GPU, and RAM.
It really all depends on your needs. Personally I recommend always building it instead of buying, as it is much cheaper and you get exactly what you want.
For most business tasks like browsing the internet, excel, etc any decent computer under $500 will do just fine (talking about US prices not sure about other countries). Make sure you have a good internet connection as well.
A $5000 computer won't do you any good if you get 100 Kbps
Acer has the best deals if you're looking for pre-built. If it were me I would build my own desktops though; however, usually when I have a big office to put together (I've done this many times) I either purchase a bunch of all-in-one PCs or I get barebones PCs and network boot them all from 1 server. You can also save a lot of money with the latter method because you don't have to pay for all the hardware of each computer. The desktop environment is loaded over the network for each workstation. That way the workstations don't need a hard drive and they can have really low-end specs. In that case you only need 1 really fast computer.
I wouldnt mind buying an iMac because of its sleek design but after using it for over a total of a week, I wouldn't buy it just based on the fact that it feels weird compared to windows.
I'm going to invest £500 in a proper desktop set up for my Internet business.
I may get 2 desktop monitors and a powerful hard drive. Most likely custom built.
I think he's talking about multiple computers for an office? In which case either all-in-one PCs or virtualization is best.
Build a computer.
Go to PC part picker website. You can choose what you want to buy and it will tell you about compatibility issues and the price.
You can buy go to a PC parts store like ncix, pick your parts and they build it for $50. I think was ncix but it might be a different store
SSD + 1 TB 7200 RPM WD Blue
8 Core AMD on a nice custom water cooling setup.
I was thinking buying a MacBook but it's not compatible to Windows which most software requires. Where do you guys build your computers?
Whatever you do make sure if you buy a graphics card it's nvidia and not amd. AMD gfx card drivers suck and there's some really cool software specialized for nvidia.
