I want to buy a new Windows computer here from Costco in Hmo. But I want an English version. Would seem the keyboard is the problem. Maybe buy an English keyboard?  


I don't want to have to drive to Tucson and back and maybe again to return a bad one and get a replacement.

Sort of. Looking at an All in One type desktop, with a 24" screen. My Dell laptop has a 15" screen and it's shrinking as I get older.

You can buy a screen a lot cheaper that will plug into what you have.

I think paid $100 for a HP 23 in the states and would guess that Walmart Mx or Sams might have something simular

You can get an adapter cable for USB to VGA which should work, might be worth looking into.

The screen cables come with usb and a seperate 14 pin male plug that all old style printers always had to have so that you could print docs from you lab or desk top.
