Hello, I am a total newbie, so please be patient I am an musician will-be, I am just starting to take singing classes and trying to learn music, own a piano and a guitar although for now only my 3 year old plays with them. My current 4yr old HP laptop is dying and I need to buy new equipment anyway and I want to think ahead about having my studio at home I know a computer will be something I will need even though I know close to nothing about music recording.I do know I want to record my own music, make videos, etc etc. Soooo, I have a quote from Dell for a Desktop Inspiron 580s, Intel Core i5-650 processor(4MB Cache, 3.20GHz) for $800 6GB RAM I looked at aDK and PCAudiolabs but that seems out of my budget, same with an iMac What do you think? Go for the Dell or wait to save more money and hope my HP laptop holds up until then? Also, should I get a similar quote from HP? For some reason I usually see Dell referenced in music users more than HP, I am told HP has horrible Customer services, I ever had to use them so I really dont know Thank you!
