After thinking about this for the last week, I figure I'm going to have to cough up over $100 for XP again ( no disc came with PC ), & after 5 years, this thing is a dinosaur by tech standards anyway -- so might as well upgrade. I've been dealing with little quirks with this machine for years.... & they just keep getting worse. The virus was the last straw -- I'm done screwing with this thing!
Part of it is my personality -- I have Z E R O
patience.... & that has just run out!
100% CORRECT SIR!!

You've got me pegged to a tee!
So I guess a Mac is a fav of the hippie crowd? Environmentally friendly is it? If so.... NOT for me!
Thanks for those links!

I just found a nice system for a friend last week from tigerdirect.com. This is a nice system and even though it is a (off the shelf) PC, it can be upgraded in the future because it is built around standard components.............
Those look like nice systems -- & the specs go to show how far they've come! Mine used to be top-of-the-line!
I was just going to ask about loading them with XP until eelhc posted.............
When is 7 coming out? I think if I'm going to spend on a new one, I might as well get the cutting-edge operating system too.
What are they saying about the cost?
