while since i bought a computer but my dad needs a new one so i'll be going with him to see what we can find (he's 87 so not playing much starcraft or war games when i come back to England on holiday in june.
all he needs is something to skype on, browse the web and use picassa for simple photo edits and printing. Windows 10 is a prerequisite. onboard graphics are more than enough. a quick look at at supermarket or argos pcs seem to have ok prices but none seems to have ssds... a 250 gb drive would be more than enough to hold everything he has (around 60gb for his peronal files and programmes and what 40-60 for windows 10 or whatever it takes
I'm wary of ordering on online incase there are problems after i return to Finland so would rather get something from a bricks and mortar place. the other option is a small place that custom builds but i have no idea in Mansfield, nottinghamshire where i would go so looking for the easiest option. any recommendations? budget would be £300-400 (or cheaper of course)- i suppose ssd is optional but it's so worth an upgrade compared to conventional (or rather 'old') drives
