buy a computer case ?
probably be cheaper than spending that much on a new machine from a bad value oem.
cheap oem computers come with cheap parts… that’s why they are cheap lol
it’s usually cheaper to build your own factoring in what you get when comparing.
i’ve been doing corp and private computer repair work and builds / tech support etc
non stop for over a decade including work on a Canadian Govt HP machine.
and the last one i worked on was an HP laptop that i sent back fixed no charge to an old friend
with no fee / cost to them with huge smiles at th ework i did
The one before that is another old friend who had a Gateway machine die on him.
and i suggested buy a new one for 400/500 or spend less and buy parts and fix it.
told em he would not need anywhere near that much to fix it, he insisted on giving me 175$
i got him a replacement motherboard for 30$ (50$ after s/h) on ebay that came with a cpu i didn’t need
and i gave em a spare gfx card as an upgrade and fixed it and gave it back basicly.
I build my own computers obviously but i had a family member give some case with fancy lights
and stuff on it back in like 2004ish and i have used the same case ever since… back then it cost about $80
and it was a good investment because i have since put countless motherboards and hard drives inside of it.
so you might wanna consider just buying a new case and reusing as many of your old parts as possible unless you want something newer etc ?
the nice thing about this is when its time you can upgrade easier and cheaper.
look at places like tigerdirect or newegg and you will see you can get your self a nice case for really cheap !
