My old Acer Aspire M1200 is about 8 years old now and I want to replace it.
I'd like to have something which retains the 4 HDMI ports at the front (3 at the least), has an SSD drive to go along with the addtional 1T SATA I already have in the Aspire, a quiet power supply and graphic card, as much memory as can fit budget, and whatever else members suggest should be in the unit.
I don't do any gaming right now, but power supply should be big enough to handle a future graphic card suitable to gaming.
Most of my computer time is spent writing stuff, email, watching movies, surfing the net, doing something in CorelDraw and Gimp.
Main concerns are quietness of computer and quality of parts. I want to run dual boot Windows / Ubuntu and Ubuntu comes with Radeon driver support out of the box, but I'll leave it to you folks to advise on parts.
Would an AMD APU be an option instead of a separate graphic card? Thanks for your help.
PS: Canadian dollars being spent, which right now are about 1/2 US dollars.
