  1. Not sure this is the right forum to post this in so pls have me excused if it is not.

    I am looking for a PC. I have a macbook air which I really like but
    1. Need a PC for my spouse
    2. Need to use the PC for me to store and view bike videos, music and photos. I have the smallest version of the macbook air but the hard drive is getting filled up and the 1100 for 256 GB storage is a bit on the high side, assuming I can find a better alternative

    The PC will be used primarily for:
    1. Surfing the internet
    2. Streaming from the internet (youtube, netflix etc)
    3. Storage and viewing of videos (probably about 50 GB)
    4. Storage of photos and music (not sure how much but probably that of a typical family)
    5. Word, excel, ppt

    The PC will be moved around the house but not used for travel except for now and then - so size and portability not a key criteria

    Would like, if possible, to spend not more than 600 USD give or take

    Go for mac mini. It will meet your needs, also you already have macbook air, so it will be easy for you and your spouse. Cheers
