My old PC was 5 years old and a total dinosaur. It had a lousy 400 processor with a 10GB hard drive and ran Windows 98. I added a CD-RW drive a few years ago.
It finally died for the most part a little over a month ago so I had to replace it. And it's replacement is SO much better! It has:
200GB hard drive
CD-ROM *AND* a DVD-RW
runs Windows XP Media Edition
has slots to read the memory cards for my digital cameras
It's 1000 times better than the old PC and everything I'd been wanting. it's even better than the Dell I had been looking at!
Now all I need is a 17" or 19" LCD monitor and I'm all set (I have a 19" flat screen CRT at the moment).
