Update: thanks for all your answers - obviously I would be using this computer for all my home computing needs as well as word processing for work. I don't really play games, but would like to - my current computer is way too old and slow to support sims 2. I also publish sheet music which I know will work fine on... show more thanks for all your answers - obviously I would be using this computer for all my home computing needs as well as word processing for work.
