Sadly in the past month My laptop died on me. It was about time i guess. so my good computer is gone. i am now saving for another one. thinking about going for a reconditioned, ex-lease macbook pro from a local company that gets them in, this will suite me fine. they come in at about half the price of a brand new one. which is great.
At the moment i am using a Pentium 4 with 1gb ram, 2.66 ghz cpu, NV18 nvidia Gforce MX 440 AGP 8x,
I am running Puppy linux on it quite happily from a multi-boot usb hdd. It performs better than the default windows xp os on the main hdd. i am sxo happy about all this and love it.
Old computers do have a use after all. as long as you know how to treat them. I would love to get my hands on a few adn set them up for people as a second computer, bringing new life to an old computer lying around.
who knows it may not happen but then it may.
