as one of the old crumblies and my computer knowledge is restricted to e-mail and the net and of course my beloved se1.....my old dinosaur of a p.c. has finally had it....what is the best and cheapest one currently on the market....daughter phoned dell and spoke to someone who was not familiar with the english tongue and only offered three months guarantee.
All you youngsters out there are much more clued up....where is the best place to start where i wont be bamboozled with jargon ? :-)
Have a look at a MacMini. Can be used with any flat screen. Small. Doesn't need any Microsoft products. Latest version will run Windows (if anyone would want to, given the choice).
Alternatively, have a look on eBay for a Mac G3 Powerbook, the Pismo would be the model to get. If you are only doing email, web-browsing, letter writing etc etc then this will be perfect and available for around £275ish.
Have a look at MacDaddy or 2ndChancePC. Few people can utilise the power of todays Macs/PCs so a good 2nd hand one makes sense. It also won't depreciate like a Dell.
