I'm new here (Don't ask about the name lol) Anyway Im going to be buying a new computer soon and I was wondering if I should take into consideration any new hardware choices coming out soon. For example...If Intel was going to put out a new 'Pentium 5' or something, or if Microsoft was going to make a new operationg system or something...along those lines, I would really like to know. I don't really follow too much tech news (Im 16 and go to school). The main reason I'm asking this is because I am planning to purchase a pretty good computer to run 3d studio max, Flash mx, and a host of other multimedia creation software. Im looking at computers at aroung this type:
It has plenty of power, ram, great Vid card and stuff. I would appreciate any advice on what to look out for when buying, and also computers or computer hardware etc.. that I shouldn't buy or should buy. Also info concerning upcoming new hardware or Operating Systems that might replace or be better than current ones, Or that you would recommend would be great. Thanx!!!
