    I'm all for spending as little as possible for a computer you're going to use for work while still getting some sort of name brand. That often means Dell or Toshiba.

    It's inevitable that it's going to get bumped around and you really only need the basics for a work machine: Plenty of memory, fundamental software, wireless card, CD/DVD player. If you're only using it for work, you shouldn't need great graphics capability and a lot of the stuff you might want on a home machine. Plus it's less painful to replace it in two or three years.

    I love the Mac and some of the MacBooks are really good value compared to a PC machine with the equivalent power and accessories. You can buy a PC - and Dell comes to mind, cheap, but I think you get what you pay for in terms of crashes, virus risks, etc.
