Hi guys and gals,
I am on a limited budget and have the option of buy one of 2 desktops. I have not been harware aware for a year or so now, so I am wondering if I can get some advice on which one of these 2 spec lists are the best option. OPTION2 is £100 cheaper than OPTION1 but has half the memory, the main area I am not sure about is the processor, I am not familiar with either. Is the E4300 a slower processor than OPTION1 processor? I understand that the E4300 is a newer processor, but is it inferior?
I hope you can offer some advice and I can get a new desktop ordered!!
OPTION1 or 2 ?
