I lost my job in the recession
and I have to start working at home "real" soon (next week
). I therefore need a good computer, capable to handle simultaneously several different tasks.
However, I'm pretty broke
and I dispose of very little :money: to buy a computer. I prefer however a new one, in order to avoid "hidden vices".
While I work, I need to open the following programs:
- Either Word, WordPerfect or PowerPoint
- Between 5 and 8 different Internet windows
- Outlook Express
- Perhaps use a voice recognition program (dictaphone?)
- It would be fantastic if I could also watch and listen to music on YouTube while I am working
. (Is this going to be very expensive?
Is it really necessary to buy a desktop for all this, or is a laptop sufficient
? I was told that Dell are the best value, but I don't know which one to buy
I hope some of you can help me and thank those who do!
