There are a bunch of other threads but everyone's situation is different. I'm looking to get a new computer for college next year, I'll be doing engineering. I currently have an ipad and an acer laptop that's almost filled and slow as hell. I'll be bringing both with me and I think I should be able to get through first year with them, but the laptop is a pain to use. Should I get a better laptop or a desktop? I'd like to be able to play games and edit videos. If I get a desktop I'm down to use those sites that put together parts to make a custom for you.

I used HP's pre-built service. I got to choose all the junk that went in it and they did all the work. I have an intel i7 quad core, nvidia geforce 630m 1 gig graphics card, 9 cell battery, 32 gig solid state 750 gig hybrid hard drive and some other junk. Decent for gaming (Im not a huge PC gamer, but it does the job pretty damn well), quick and the battery lasts forever. I think I got some back to school discounts and it came in right around $850-900.

if you load the OS onto the SSD then the computer runs way faster, you can load all your data and files onto another hard drive so the setup isn't super expensive and you get a speed benefit. 32gb is pretty small though, gamers like to load the OS and their games onto SSD's, 32gb is enough for the OS and not much else.
Opinions are like nipples, everybody has one. Some have firm points, others are barely discernible through layers, and some are displayed at every opportunity regardless of whether the audience has stated "I am interested in your nipples" or not - David Thorne
I'd seriously consider making yourself a hackintosh.. there are actually quite a bunch of components that are easily mac compatible, but you can buy them seperately.
then you can dual boot windows and mac. you could probhably get a near mac pro performing tower for much less.
Check out this for example :
I went into best buy and they recommended an asus touchscreen with a terabyte of memory, 8gigs of hard drive, 15.5 inch screen, and I kind of forget the rest of the details. Anyways it was 900 and might be something to look into. Also see if you can get discounts through your college
