    I am guessing that your old man will have to go online a lot more. Just like my uncle.

      Only ever bought one PC and that was back in 1998 - since then I've updated components as I felt it necessary and built it for myself. Use to sit on a nice big desk in an 'office' at home with a 20Mb broadband line but a split from the wife late and I'm back in a bedroom at my mum's on a wee workstation in the corner on a very temperamental Talk Talk broadband line.

      Still running Windows XP though as use my mum's Vista Laptop from time to time and hate that OS (so far). Works fine for me, is compatible with all my hardware and software so don't see the need to change.

        Many people don't like Vista.

        You might have well and truely built your pc from scratch but at different times you will have trouble getting parts for an 11 year old computer. It's not that easy any more.

        You will find once your pc breaks down you will have to buy a new pc and start again. Best to do that every three to 5 years. Within that time you can build up your pc again with newer parts.

          I'll clarify - the PC I got has over time had components updated. What I run now has nothing left from the original PC - indeed, it's oldest part is a 3 year old DVD-RW...

            Compaq was in a package with the monitor, keyboard, mouse and hard drive.
            I'd never buy a Compaq model, even though they are made by Hewlett Packard. Acer sells good wholesale parts for cases, processors and power supplies but the rest of their hardware is subpar. I'd rather pay more for solid hardware or build it myself.

            I have HPs because they were cheaper than I could build them myself. They aren't top of the line but they are good enough for a mix of gaming, business applications and web development. I didn't pay more than $750 US for either of my HP Computers. monitors, keyboards, mice and printers tend to last longer than computers themselves so I never buy all those parts together.

              Good to hear as I am doing an assignment on the interface of the compaq computers.
