    Buy a new 'puter or wait after christmas?

    Not that Windows 8 will go away after christmas, but now I'm really in need of a new computer. Should I still wait one month in hope the prices will drop or should I go for the christmas craze?

    I have my eyes on an all-in-one PC (Windows, not OSX) and I'm not sure if these will have a huge price drop as it's a niche market.

    Imho you usually get the best offers right before christmas.

    Oh and you can downgrade Win8

    Why not just go with an Apple based OS?

    If you can wait a bit longer (2-3 months) you should. The current crop of Windows 8 hardware is lackluster, to be kind. New, and better designed, hardware is coming.

    in general, computers will probably be cheaper in January than they are now, but probably not significantly so if you really need the new machine now.

    Windows v OSX is a whole other issue... personally, you'd be hard pressed to force me onto OSX at gunpoint. I hate the operating system, and across the board I'd say Apple prices are higher than Windows machines. you may want to consider looking for a Win7 refurb or something, though.

    is there any particular brand/manufacturer/store you're looking at?

    There's still that upgrade offer going on till end of January. I could get a machine with 7 and buy the update for 8 for a few bucks. If I don't like it, I would just reinstall 7. I'm not sure though if it's better to go with a proper installation of 8 instead of an update.

    I have my eyes on these two machines:

    My 2c...
    I will not buy into W8 until I can replace my entire system... this being inclusive of a touch-capable display.

    My current system is a Core2Duo with built-in graphics card and 2MB RAM. The most recent FPS that runs on it is Call of Duty 2 (the very first one)... so any new computer is probably better than mine.

    My patience wasn't rewarded... they took the computer I preferred out of their product line

    I've been through all the iterations of Windows and Win 8 is smooth like butter. It takes some getting used to, because I am using it on a regular desktop PC with a keyboard and mouse, but it works wonderfully well. Next year I'll be getting the Surface Pro so I'll be able to experience Win 8 using touch the way it was meant to be.

    I find if you shop around enough, you can find great deals on PCs anytime of year. Just be patient.

    Now I found this one:
    http://www.terraworldltd.com/pc/business/4469.html

    Downside:
    - looking sexy from the front, from the side it looks like they shoved a usual mainboard inside
    - doesn't come with keyboard and mouse for that price
    - the monitor stand looks flimsy

    I might also go for this MSI model then, which has similar specs. This one from Acer looks good too, but it just seems to have tablet technology packed into a bigger monitor.

    That Terra one looks like light on the ram and graphics for that price. It's quite highly priced.

    I have a MSI motherboard (970A-G46) so I can testify for their high stability and solid build. The produce high quality components. The All in one computers are good if that's what you need. I'd take the MSI over the Terra or Acer.

    Yikes. Avoid that Terra. Its only got integrated graphics, which won't be enough for a computer like that. (they barely are adequate on some laptops now)

    Integrated graphics are fine depending on what you want to use it for. But that Terra really is totally overpriced.

    That's what I meant. For that price, integrated graphics are unacceptable. If it was a $400 laptop, it wouldn't be a big deal.
