getting a cheap vps will do the job
VPS for software.
& The higher the price the better - always like that
I need a PC for some 3d rendering software aswell for my studies so I might aswell kill 2 birds with one stone.
Higher price is better when your not on a budget, thanks anyway
What exactly do you need a IM computer for? Didn't know there was such a thing till i read this thread! Surely any computer will do the job?
thats not a good idea
im software like sb xrumer senuke
will get your computer infected with malwares and spywares.
So is safer to use a vps.
Build a custom PC and get at least 8GB of RAM and at least a quadcore CPU.
Usually you dont need 8GB of RAM, BUT!....
Then use a virtual box to run the software in and assign it at least 4GB of RAM to use. That should be fine for running all the software at the same time.
Stay away from
Lenov and other stupid crappy computers
I have Dell , and guess what its running 5 years , without crashin , i have never had problems , never been crashed , never instaled new OS, and it still works like charm
Dell's are cheap now , and they are best for your budget , so go ahead and get Dell PC
Of course Mac would be best , but only you could get used Mac. i have 1 at home , and its really fast
So yeah , Take Dell - You wont regret it
Dells are horrible computers. Asus is the best you listed the are not crap.
If you want a Windows computer then just build your own. Cheap, and fast.
I personally have nothing but good things to say about Asus, they build some quality PCs.
As for the OP I recommend:
Min. 4 Gb Ram, 8 Gb preferred
Graphic Card: Atleast 1gb DDR 3. Mine is a ATI Radeon HD 4670 which is a bit on the older side now (2008-2009) but has performed marvelously. Can find much better cards pretty cheap ($90-$130) now. I always go with ATI based cards
CPU: Quad Core 3.2 GHz. I have only used AMD's because they can usually be overclocked quite high. At the moment I have AMD Phenom II 3.2 x2 overclocked to 4.1 Ghz and stable at 39 degrees celsius. It is dual core but can be unlocked to quad core. Very good price, I bought it for $80 on Newegg, very much worth it if you are experienced with overclocking. Just read over some reviews on newegg when searching for your CPU, most of the reviews will tell you about a CPU's overclocking capability.
For your IM software, recommend a VPS
Maybe we both are wrong but i know people with Asus and Acer and their are crashing a lot. blue screens , overheating and so on + thei are kinda slow, my sister got new acer and its slower than my Dell , even Acer stats are much higher
Asus has always been known for quality, they are no where near the same category as Acer. Asus is also making parts for all top laptop/pc companies.
The statement about the Dell being much faster than the Acer means absolutely nothing without seeing system specs.
