I'm sure there are more than a few here who get the request from relos - their old desktop running Vista has died and they need a new PC so they call you.
What to recommend...
I've built high end PCs for various folks for gaming, video editing etc, but not really any entry level boxes. You know the type, web browsing, email, looking at photos from their digital camera and that's about it.
I have been wondering if NUCs are the way to go here. Just chuck in some storage and an OS and off you go.
For example, I currently have a request for such a system and was looking at the following :
Intel NUC BOXNUC6CAYSAJR
RAM (replace 2GB with 8)
All up about $550
The NUC above comes with Win10 Home so you're good to go assuming you have an existing display :)
Anyone else had to recommend a PC for this type of use and budget? What did you recommend?
EDIT : Thge NUC has the following specs
CPU - Celeron J3455 (2MB Cache, up to 2.3 GHz, quad core)
RAM - 2MB DDR3L(Max 8MB)
Storage - 32GB embedded with Win10 Home pre-installed, 1x 2.5" SATA
Expansion - M.2 Slot, SDXC slot
I/O - 6 x USB ports (2.0 & 3.0), Toslink, Mic, Audio out, Lan port, Integrated WiFi
