I just got rid of my computer. Well I beat the shit out of it and gave what was left away.

I need a new computer, monitor, keyboard mouse, etc..

What are some good deals for mid range stuff, nothing fancy I dont play games that much anymore.

Give me a link to any good prices you see.

Other alternative will be to build it but if I do that Im going all out and I'll end up spending valuable gun money.

As for neighbors I dont know who has the cool stuff. If Im stealing Im gonna steal the rims and tires of that Impala I saw down the street, I need a 2nd set.

I threw the mouse against the wall. Beat the kayboard agiant the tower or monitor I dont remember which. Threw punches into the tower it fell off desk and 1 side of case came off. I then used to to beat it more. I slammed it on the monitor from the top and it stopped coming on after that.


And No I dont have pics.

I bought an Emachine box from Compusa for 299 bucks last year. 1.8G Celery, 40 GB HD. Pretty basic, but it has the up to date software I needed.

I would rather buy a new dirt cheap computer every year than a cutting edge computer every five.

e-Machines have done well with the handful that I've had people buy and the one I bought.

e-Machines got bought up by Gateway so I don't know what the quality is now.

My father bought a 2.4 Ghz/40 Gb/256 Mb/XP Home machine, a 17" monitor, an IBM color printer (with sample size ink cartridges ), and a color flat bed scanner for $399 after three different rebates 16 months ago during Christmas. It's still working fine.

The laptop that I use for the university classes I teach is an e-Machine. I use it primarily to do PowerPoint slides but it's also used for packet sniffing and as a test bed for virus infections and trojan installations . Works like a charm. The Dell I have costs twice as much and is just about as fast. No Wi-Fi in the Dell though and the e-Machine has a nice wide display good for DVD's and the new Office XP format where there's always a large tool bar on the right-hand side of the screen (until you dismiss it)

Looking for one myself. We are thinking about giving her our old Gateway just because the thing is so damn noisy. The HD has whined from day one and we just cant take it anymore.

No I did it last week after my car getting fucked up again. I was already pissed after a shitty week at work. I was already hating life and looking for something to destroy, it was the first thing to cross my path.

Im really weighing how much I enjoy my computer. I never really use it except on weekends, and then its just Ar15.com mainly. Im thinking atleast $600 for computer could instead be new guns or ammo.
