I need to replace our home laptop(s). They are 2006 Toshibas and are either dead or dying. I just checked out Walmart's website and the HP desktop came up , with the tablet dock (tablet sold separately). I wonder what you think. My husband is a very low power computer user. He does not type really at all (takes forever to create an email), but he does well internet searching and is a used book aficionado so cruises those sites a lot.
I am a medium power user I suppose. I do need to build a website for our church (haven't got around to it yet) and in general be able to experiment somewhat with technology relevant to library sciences. I do have the use of my corporate laptop from which I type this now. But I'm not going to download WordPress onto it, for example, and I'd like to get back to personal stuff on my own machine (that is where WordPress will go) and not this one. For a PC, we're not major gamers or shutterbugs or entertainment types.
I'd like to spend no more than $500 for now. Is an HP desktop PC and HP tablet a good way to go? I have to check on the software pkgs and etc of course, would like all the basics inc Office inc in the $500.
