what do you think of this 1?

i want to get away from windows 10. it keeps breaking.


That should work well for you.

But I caution you.... study up on Linux a little bit before you buy.

While it is safer than Windows... a lot of software does not run on Lunux.

There are reasons that the majority of users and participants here do not use Linux.





Just use caution before jumping into Linux.

Linux is great and probably ok for the uses you plan. Keep in mind, though, that you have slightly more limited software options up front. If you ever want to run Windows software, that may be many years down the road. It doesn't run well in wine right now for the most part. Some are ok. Ubuntu is the one to go for for solid reliability from what I am seeing on Youtube. The Newegg PC has that,and could be this is why. As Ubuntu is explained. on Youtube.."everything just...works". This can be a different story with some of the distros. Anyway, you can always change later. Linux is no charge to you and $170 savings...

Hardware looks great if you like the overall. 2 drives with the large backup drive. Looks like a very nice system.

If you go with Ubuntu, this Youtube series might help you. It's 10 parts but don't get frustrated while watching the earlier episodes. Series has an ending you will like and lots of good information along the way:
