My mom wants to buy herself a new desktop for video/photo editing, and refuses to take my advice and let me build it for her. We're currently stuck between a dual-core Phenom II HP desktop and a quad-core Athlon II Acer desktop. I'm wondering which company has the best build quality or service, as that will be the deciding factor.

I would go with HP on this one, because I've had some bad experiences (with reliability) with Acer compared to HP. I think build quality is pretty much the same between the two companies.

My dad had an Acer laptop. The harddrive was malfunctioning out of the box, and half the ram just stopped working after a year or so.
But, I bough a cheap Acer laptop three or four years ago, I used it for a few years, and after I bought an iMac, I gave it to my mom, and it still works fine.
So, I don't really know what to think of Acer, but I have never had a problem with my HP netbook.
