Just make sure you get one without the bloatware.
They give you all the programs that you will never use.
It's a pain to try and delete these programs.

If he doesn't want to build one, or you don't want to build one for him, then you can go with any pre-built PCs including ones from ibuypower.com. Some people love them, some people hate them, but they sell non-brand computers that are cheaper than brand-names and offer more bang for the buck. They also have payment options.

Do you think that buying online would be one of the best? I have heard a lot that it might be lost..
