    Advices for changing Acer-laptop to a desktop computer (CHEAP) ->

    So I want to ask this community, how to "change" my laptop into what desktop computer, with (at least) a little stronger setup.

    So my current laptop is Acer Aspire 5738ZG as a Intel Pentium T4400 -processor and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 -version. My plans are to get a desktop computer with at least some stronger. So, you see where I live, if you can help, where to find about cheap computers with some power too, advice me.

    Building one is not my strongest points, but I can get some people who can do it.

    Thank you at least for reading.

    It does not matter much. Just any computer with modern (that is, manufactured post 2010) components will be faster than your laptop. Simply make sure that you get a dedicated GPU and not an integrated one.

    500-600 euros. Maximum. The cheaper, the better.

    I've always fallen to such things, now I'm going sure in this and exclude the integrated from the thing I'm searching.

    You have a good budget. I can't recommend a site to buy parts from unfortunately.

    What do you need? Just the base PC unit or everything, a screen, a mouse, keyboard, etc?

    I don't know about the prices in finland, but i think you can convert to euro about 1:1.

    If you don't plan to use your laptop anymore, then you probably can re-use the windows license (the sticker on the bottom of the laptop).
