Hurlshort Posted November 20, 2009 Share Posted November 20, 2009 I need to build or buy two new PC's for my mother-in-law's business. She needs them to be able to run quickbooks and typical office software, and they need to be easy to network together so they can share files, printers, and an internet connection. I'm pretty comfortable with the hardware aspects, but I'm not too sure what OS to get. Should I go Vista or 7? I'm familiar with Vista, I have it on my own PC. But I've heard good things about 7. My biggest concern is the networking of the two, I want an easy to setup network. We also used to have a server running Windows 2000, but I'm under the impression that a server is pointless for such a small network. Is that true? The old PC's ran XP and it was not easy configuring the network. I'm also questioning whether I should build them or not. I can get a pretty decent desktop with W7 already installed at Fry's for $400, I'm not sure it would be much cheaper to buy the components separately. I guess I can probably knock a hundred bucks off that, but I'm not sure if that is worth my time and potential problems I might create for myself putting it together.
