asked on

which computer would you sugest out of the following

Hi my cousin needs a cheap desktop computer to run a database (local database not networked or anything). He would also like to go online every now and then, but its going to be used at a business mostly for his database program.

He currently has dos (ms dos 5.11) so ANYTHING will be an upgrade compared to that.

The database software has minimum requirements of 1gb of memory and XP (or WIN 7).

He does not want to spend more then $150 on a computer because the database program that he is updating to is very expensive (arround $900)

Below are a few computers that I was looking at:

Any sugestions?

Thanks everyone. I decided to go with the HP-DC500. I agree 100% that since its for his business, investing in a good system would be a great idea but since his business is not fully dependent on the computer (they dont NEED a computer it just makes things easier for them) they wanted to spend no more then $150 for it.

Again thanks everyone!
