    nunitak got a reaction from GalenPep in How to Deal with an Used & Old Computer?   
    Well, not all of us have deep pockets for the latest spiffy pc, albeit I can build one cheaply that is better than my Dell Latitude D830 Laptop on which I just now finished doing a Full Install and Full Update of Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.  As I do not do this stuff everyday, being mostly a cosmic life sciences person, it took me two failing tries over day and a half, and then one full attentions focused success, somewhat of a miracle too for a 70 year old.  Now I can continue my writing and blogging in STYLE.    I did a Hangman Game for typing students once on the TI-99/4A.  Hmmm.  Circa 1984 or 1985 I think...
     
    You can see some of those nifty TI-99/4As for sale really cheap on Ebay (eBAY ?).  My Sinclair ZX81 got lost in SLC, Utah.  Youngsters probably have no clue about that one.
     
    I never play games and cannot see fast moves nowadays.   Any ol' cheapie with XP or better is good enough, Win 7 Pro has been a rather impressive splurge.  I like it!  
     
    BEST SUGGESTION:  Make SURE it is working and give to a brainy and very poor student age 11 to 21
     
    When I left Michigan in 2011 the starving unemployed were grabbing all old appliances, computers, whatnot, working or not.  I don't know where the loaded pick-up trucks went, but apparently someone was paying a little, maybe a computer salvage and restore guy, many such shops were around there, and many go overseas for my same suggestion as here.  Help those students! !

    nunitak got a reaction from nohnigefearxv76 in Why does WiseCleaner advertise WiseCare 365 annoyingly when you've already purchased and installed it?
