As the thread title suggests, the old and bold desktop in " Casa Warrior " is about to be taken outside and given the lump hammer treatment! Any guru ARRSER's out there recommend a replacement? This one is on its last legs is a few years old. 160gig, 500mb RAM.... Like I said it's feckin old Roughly what I am after is a family friendly pooter, that I can also use to do a fair amount of work on at home. The machine will be used for the usual t'internet, kids school stuff. Also a lot of work related things for me and her indoors. I'm after a fast machine with very good memory capacity. I don't use the PC for much gaming, however, the kids and our lass do. Seen this today, in comet!! acer pooter ( I know this is not the comet website! ) Comments? Thoughts? Any help appreciated fella's. Not the worlds biggest pooter guru, so don't be banging massive lists of stats up please, if you do an explanation for a mong would be helpful! Oh, and P.S. Pointers on transferring the data from me old drives to the new machine? This would be helpful especially if the old system was XP and the new one more than likely to be vista ( yes, I know I am a cheeky fooker!! ) Cheers N_W.
