Ideally, desktop users who are upgrading from Windows XP and not sure what to do should go for 64-bit Windows 7 Pro with a window 8 disk. Basically, you’re buying Windows 8 but with downgrade rights that allow you to run Windows 7. The nice thing about the 7 Pro version is that it has an XP Mode that lets you run a copy of XP under Windows 7. It’s a bit of a geeky approach but it does enable people to move at their own pace from XP to Windows 7 to Windows 8. Otherwise, the Great Leap Forward can come as a bit of a shock.

Picking a Dell
As you’re already a Dell user, you may as well stick with the brand. Our last three desktops have all been from Dell, and none of them has given any problems. The Pentium-powered Dell Dimension 8400 I bought in April 2005 is still going strong running Windows XP (with a RAM upgrade and a new graphics card), and I added a Dell Vostro 460MT running Windows 7 on a Core i5-2500 in September 2011.
Dell’s Vostro range is aimed at boring business buyers rather than consumers, so they tend to be well made and they don’t include a lot of bundled crapware to mess things up. They’re not the least bit flash. They also come with one year (sometimes two years) of next-business-day support.
At the moment, you can get a Dell Vostro 470MT with a Core i5-3470 processor, 4GB of memory, Nvidia GeForce GT 620 graphics card, 1TB hard drive, DVD, Wi-Fi and 64-bit Windows 7 Pro for £538.80 including VAT and shipping. It’s much more than you need.
However, there’s also a similar but smaller and cheaper Vostro 270S (small form factor) for £382.80. This lacks the dedicated graphics card and has Windows 8 Pro pre-installed, but saves you £156.
You could add a standard 23in Dell E2313H 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) monitor with a DVI-D connection, or even an UltraSharp U2312HM, though there are plenty of alternatives on Amazon and similar stores.
If you want to try something that isn’t from Dell, the Lenovo ThinkCentre Edge 72 offers some good alternatives. Prices range from about £300 to £750, depending on the processor. A model with a Core i5-3470S and a similar spec to the Dell 470 MT will cost about £500.
Lenovo also does a Tiny business desktop PC: tiny by name and by nature.
The trend over the past decade is for people to replace desktops with big notebook PCs. However, a desktop provides a bigger (and often better) screen, is usually faster, more upgradeable, and may be cheaper. It’s also better for your health, because using a laptop for long periods is bad for your health. I have the physiotherapy bills to prove it
