Re: new computer

Hi Mike,


I know the computer Jerry  is looking at is a desktop model.

Cannot it be used safely  if it sits on its side rather than he bottom.

I have a mid-tower computer which I have on its side instead of standing up.

Yes, my tower  computer takes up more room on its side, but I have my printer sitting on the tower.

I’ve been doing this for at  least 2 or 3 years with  no problem.

You are aware that this computer is not the tower type that sits on the floor, usually, but it's the desktop type that takes a lot of space on a flat service of choice.  Just thought I'd mention it just in case you didn't notice the dimensions particulars.

Take care and stay safe.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers & Rams!

It depends on the price.

I can’t tell by the number, what generation of * core 7 processor?

It says ddr3 ram;  ddr4 has been in use for many years now.

I would  expect a new computer  to have a s s d   drive of some sort.

I would definitely look around and see what is available for the same money.
