Advice in buying a new computer?
I am a 16 year old with an interest in technology. I have a decent job and have a respectable amount of spending money, but I would rather not spend more than 1000 dollars. I want to buy a computer that will not completely suck with in two years. I don't need a fancy graphic card or anything, just a computer that I can run a lot of things at one time and store a lot of music and such. Also I am considering switching to Linux so if you have any suggestions about that id appriciate it.
