My first attempt at this thread (The initial OP was titled “Is this computer over the top?”) obviously had problems- the OP was missing. Here’s my second try:
My wife and I want to purchase a new computer. We’ve looked around and priced several, customized a few, including this package from Dell.
What do you think? Is it too much? The over all price (including an all-in-one photo printer/scanner/fax/copier) totals around $4K.
I realize that’s a lot of money. That’s why I’m asking advice. Here are the details:
