Help my mom's business buy a computer
Here's what she is looking for:
A drastic increase in performance. She is running most of her work on a workstation laptop now and with all of her programs (and Nortons) its starting to go a little slow for her daily usage. Ideally, this would be a top of the line performance machine at the budget she is asking for. She will keep her laptop, so she is looking for a desktop.
Reuse: monitor, mouse, keyboard
This budget shall include:
Windows 8 license (not sure which)
Antivirus - Right now she uses Nortons and its pretty much awful -difficult settings to navigate, strange interactions etc
Many (10?) USB outlets - her business runs a TON of peripherals (multiple printers, vinyl cutter, embroidery machine, external storage devices.)
SSD for WINDOWS and common program installation - She is new to SSDs so is likely to fill it quickly. In addition, she installs multiple graphic art programs (CorelDraw, SmartDesigner, CAM style software for her cutters) that take up a lot of space. Maybe 256 GB?
2 Tb or more HDD for image storage (She runs external backups on a USB connected HDD)
16 GB ram (more less?)
Graphics card for graphic art work
Processor for same
Simple case with lots of room for SSDs/HDDs as necessary
Any suggestions necessary, and I am confident I fill in any gaps in suggestions. Looking for someone who enjoys making these lists to play around a bit
I'm hoping to have the computer purchased and shipped by Tues/Wednesday of next week.
