Re: purcheasing an HP

A solid-state drive is a very good thing, and it's going to speed up your usage quite a bit.  If you have a lot of media, you are better off purchasing a NAS or an external drive to store those files... as for a PC lasting you ten years, I'm not sure I would realistically expect that unfortunately.  You might get lucky of course, but ten years is a long time for a PC to last, depending on how much you use this computer of course.  Now your PC might last you that long if you replace a part or two like the hard drive... besides, in ten years you'll probably want something new anyway.

 Hello, I called hp today and this is what they came up with!  I was wondering if someone would not mind telling me if this is what I need!  I do know it has it's own graphic memory so it will not use the memory on the computer!  I was a little confused about the 512 verses the 256 specs! I still don't know how large the c drive is?! I wanted like a 2tb hard-drive!   They said it was a solid state drive or SSD drive! And they said because I have two external drives, i did not need a large c-drive!  I will use this pc to run my k1000, jaws 15,dxb, and my media or movies I need this machine to last a long time like my other ten year old machine that died!!

    Well. The specs sound good never did see anything about the hard drive other than 2TB which means it more than likely is not a SSD which is fine but I would make sure it was at least 7200 speed for the HD if not more. Lots of ram and very good processer speed.

    Now have you checked out Dell it self ? You would need to shop on the business side more than likely to get W7 on one!


    I also would check out the Microsoft store for PC running W7 on it.  they don’t have all the un wanted software you get on one . Also on the dell business side you usually don’t get all the un wanted software! JST!

    Hello, it is cheaper for me to buy a win7 desktop than a updated version of jaws!  I have been searching on amazon for the past few days for a win7 professional desktop and dell seems to be the only one that has knew machines with win7 on them!  I am not a big fan of dell but, this machine had the best reviews! here is the link to it



    I did not like the fact that all the ports were on the back of the machine instead of the top or the front! But they said it was good for one to exspand the machine so maybe I can add the parts from my old machine that I kept! I do wish it was cheaper but, way cheaper than the dell site by half! Can someone let me know if this is a good machine to last me for a while, my other machine lasted five almost six years! Thanks, Heather
