Hello, Will be getting a new home Desktop PC in the near future. Typical home usage; nothing fancy. Willing to go up to about $ 1,200 Have read many, many, rants and opinions on how poor Dell is these days re quality, and also their service. Frankly, pretty much the same kind of thing for HP. I have never had an HP computer,. I realize that since this is a computer Forum, all you folks probably went thru the same kind of analysis (and agony) in trying to decide what to purchase, HP system or dell system?.
