Hello Head-Fiers, what is a dependable manufacturer of tower PCs? I think I've seen a lot of businesses/schools using Dell, if I remember correctly. Are they onto something? I think, at some point, I would like to purchase a modular tower PC, because it seems to me that that would be cheaper than going through the cycle that a lot of people go through of buying a completely new computer every few years. But I could be wrong. I haven't made any attempt at verifying this suspicion. If I was filthy rich, then I might consider purchasing an iMac, just because of how beautiful those look. It may sound like a shallow reason for wanting a computer, but the iMac is the prettiest computer I have ever laid eyes on, even including the rest of Apple's computers. It is truly a work of art. But alas, I'm not sure if I can justify spending that much on a computer just because it is pretty. Anyway, it isn't modular. Once the components became obsolete, I would just end up recycling it and purchasing a whole new one. Back to my tower PC criteria: I don't need the latest and greatest components; I wouldn't do anything demanding on it, something that the average computer couldn't do. The most I would use it for is to watch movies and play mostly older video games. The majority of the games that I play are older titles. Such as Half-Life. Thank you so much.
