    Those are two good choices, Jacqueline.

    Macs cost way too much for what's under the hood. The internal parts are often what's in middle of the road Windows computers. What it's users are paying for is the name, the real glass screen & finely machined aluminum frame & keyboard.

    Honestly, who needs an aluminum keyboard machined to tolerances usually reserved for engine building? I can see the frame & real glass, the keyboard is going too far.

    For the price of a single Mac, one can have two fairly decent Windows 8 (or 7) computers. And for the record, Apple's star is falling fast. They have chosen to spend their money on litigation (suing others) rather than on product research & development. With Tim Cook at the helm, Apple will never regain what's been lost in the last year or so, even their smartphone business is going south.

    He was a poor choice to lead the corporation, it kind of makes me wonder if this was Steve Jobs way of striking back at Apple, after all, they once booted him from the empire that he built. If so, once again, Jobs executed perfectly.

    Cat, I am running Netrunner 13 Enigma Release OS right now on a thumbdrive (typing this message from a built-in Firefox browser). It looks awesome! It's snappy, too! It's also a Linux Distribution. It even has its built-in screen capture app. Here's the screencapture I took:

    It's a complete package... Libre office, skype, GIMP, etc.

    Plus, the Linux KDE experience is totally new to me. I'm more used to the Ubuntu based OS's, though I'm going to give Linux Mint Debian (a rolling release OS) a shot tomorrow. Those OS's, unless broken, doesn't need reinstalling, Debian has updated itself nicely for years. It's also one of, if not the longest, Linux OS's around. The Live DVD ran great on my old Dell.

    Cat, yeah I like it. I also like how it looks. Very clean. Plus you can do the basics with it right away. Thinking about getting another basic machine just for these Linux OSs. Our office IT Dept is clearing out some old workstations with these specs:

    Actually these PCs also come with Windows OS.

    Not too bad, right?

    The only "Upgrade" I ever did in my PC life, was from Windows 98 to Windows XP.
    (all other installs have been COLD Installs, to a clean HD)

    Later, I actually did a full install of Windows XP, Retail.
    And I slipstreamed into that DVD, SP2 and SP3. I still have that disk.

    After trying Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 & 8.1, I'm now back to my good ol' XP,Pro,SP3.

    It runs the fastest on my 9 yr old MSI motherboard, which I've keep running for all these years, with repairs, upgrades, etc. My last repair involved a paper clip, some super glue, 5 minute epoxy and some Tie Wire.

    Why, you might ask! Well the plastic frame that holds the CPU heat-sink, being under stress for 9 years, finally broke.
    My fix:


    I like to hold onto what WORKS.

    Cheers Mates!
