Barbara has an old Gateway computer that's finally given up the ghost. So what should she get? She wants to be able to rip her husband's albums and burn the music to CD, so she'll need a computer with a CD burner.
Leo says that Dell is probably Barbara's best bet. They're very reliable and robust. Barb won't need a high end machine either. A Dell Inspiron would do, and she can get one for about $500. She can still get a Windows 7 machine, too. A Dell All-in-One would save on space as well, but they're a little more expensive. 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive would be adequate. She can also look at Lenovo.
