Default need computer advice

I want to put a computer in the garage and hook up a 40" TV as the monitor with HDMI hookups. 1080p. I want it to be able to surf the Web. Wifi and ethernet available. I have a wireless keyboard and mouse. I would like to be able to be able to open PDFs and work on spreadsheets. It needs to play DVDs or be able to have an external one hooked to it. I dont need the latest and greatest but I dont want videos to be sluggish.

I am not very computer literate. I don't really know what a Roku is. I would prefer Windows since I don't know anything about linux aside from the word.

New or used. Not sure what to budget for this. Say $350?

get on newegg.com and find an Acer laptop in your price range. Cant go wrong as far as im concerned. Good shit for the money and doesnt usually come with all the little bullshit trial programs and spam that most do.

I considered buying a new laptop but I know there are some specific tv computers but I don't know if they do what I need.

Will the computer be able to output the correct ratio for the widescreen tv?

Default Re: need computer advice

yes. just a little messing around in the settings should fix things right up.

As I suggested earlier, a roku box is great for streaming but it sounds like that's not what you're after. Basically all a Roku does is connect to tons of streaming services, including netflix, amazon, hulu plus, etc and puts it all right in front of you.

I'd like to see the $350 rig you'd put together medi.

This sounds like a great idea. Have a problem fix it with the help of a 40in breakdown right in front of you. I would defiantly put one in my garage if the price could be $350 or less for everything

I have a laptop in my shop that I use for diagnostic, parts ordering and entertainment. One thing I love about the Acer I use is that the keyboard is only like $8 on ebay and takes 90 seconds to switch out. So I order a couple of em and keep em on hand because being in a shop my keyboard gets fucked up with oil and grease and all sorts of ish.
