I just bought my 12 year old son a laptop for Christmas. It is a Dell Duo 2 core 2GB Ram. It says
it has windows vista already on it but nothing else. What other packages will he need for the laptop? I have a PC and it already had everything on when I got it so a little confused by all the different packages on offer lol, Help Please!!
This is what Dell does. I have Vista and it is horrible. Now, if you want this, it will cost you X dollars. Of course, you need this, but it will cost x dollars. So by the time they get done, that $299 special will now cost $599. Oh, then you have to pay for a warranty.
My Dell had a bad hard drive. You are sent CD roms to install. Dell does a basic set up,you do the rest with CD roms.
Less than 2 years old, and keys are already breaking.
Support, tech assistance: Forget it. The Enlish is horrible, you are not speaking to someone in the USA. It takes hours with these people and problem is usually not resolved.
Forget Dell. Go for a Mac from what i have been told. I will never get another Dell. I will never have another Vista program.
Well, it depends on what he will be doing. If he is going to use it for school work, I suggest you get him Microsoft Office Suite. You can download internet browsers (like Chrome and Opera) that have ad blockers and parental control if he is mainly going to be surfing the internet or gaming. If he's into creative projects, Photoshop and Logic Pro are the best for that. I hope I helped. I'm just not sure about what he will be using it for...if you have any more questions, you may contact me via my profile.
