for the desktop it is cheaper build yourself which is what almost everyone on this forum will tell you, dell use the cheapest parts so that they can maximise profits at the detriment of there consumers

the laptops can you put down these specs:
Ram: the sizes
Cpu: the actual model number
hdd capacity: the number of gb's
screen size:
price:
what version of windows: (as it is a laptop I am assuming it will be vista so either basic, home premium or business)

if your going to buy for an office, I wouldn't suggest anything with vista yet... to many bugs in it and for strictly office work, it's overkill... XP pro would work nicely. but that depends on what you do in the office of course... if it's data base work, normal type stuff... XP... you get the idea...

are you going to utilize a server to house your data or keep everything on local drives? No need to spend money on a huge drive if your not going to use it... an 80/160GB drive would work...

I'm thinking the C521/E521

as for lappy... what do you want to do with it... work or play? work standards can be a lot less than play... if you want to game, then be prepared to spend some money... but that is why I ask first.
