Folks, everyone, may need different ISOs. Yes, they actually contain multiple editions but is everyone OK with removing/editing ei.cfg? So think about that.

to locate and replace the battery in the original Revere.


To me, the original Revere is superior in workmanship and ability At this point I don't have a need for more technology than what is required for the phone calls.

By basic tasks would using it for MS word and excel, using iTunes to transfer stuff to my phone, and basic internet browsing count?

For the price, I'd say it doesn't sound bad at all and I've
really grown

to like Lenovo, having had mine for around 4 or so years now. I'd
definitely stick with a machine that either comes with 7 or that
can be

downgraded, without to much trouble, but if that ends up being to
difficult, having to change over to 10 really isn't super bad.


My machine's processor is a tad bit quicker, so I can't really
speak to

what type of decrease you may see, but if you just want it for
word processing and tinkering about on the interwebs, I'd guess
it'd work pretty well. Just as reference, my machine is the x220,
upgraded to an SSD, which I purchased later down the road and
installed myself.
I've also really liked the Dell Latitude machines, but it's been
a long

time since I had a dell, so I can't speak to them these days.
Just a few thoughts. :)
Take care.

experience with doing that. I don't mind windows 10, but my
experience is with a computer that doesn't play well with
windows 10 so a more updated computer might be lots better.
One computer I was looking @ was:

As for price I am thinking $400 or lower if possible. But, not
so low as to get a computer that would only last me for a year
or so. Those two are the same brand and are "mini" desktops and
honestly they don't sound bad to me, but I've been out of the
loop regarding computer stuff since I lost my site and now could
care less if the computer is powerful enough to run photoshop or
the games I used to play.
When I search I would like a few more specs to look for as in
hard drive types, ram, and processor type/speed. I think that is
it, but I'm sure I'm missing something.

After seeing the one Carlos linked (TS M53 Celeron 4GB 500GB ) and
this other one:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01A04M72E/ref=psdc_565098_t2_B00SNSFMYA
I’m thinking that an SSD drive isn’t *that* important since I can
upgrade that in the future (and also have an external to use) so I
could go more for processor speed? Or I see USB 2.0 with some USB 3.0
also.

Although the page doesn't quite look the same and it seems a bit
more pricy

than it was when I purchased it.

I can't recall, but got me curious on what machine you'd posted
about, guess it's been a good ways back. I know that it ran
windows, but it was one of those little tiny type PCS, almost a
portable sort but still a PC.
You remember which one it was?
Thanks.

For the price, I'd say it doesn't sound bad at all and I've
really grown

to like Lenovo, having had mine for around 4 or so years now. I'd
definitely stick with a machine that either comes with 7 or that
can be

downgraded, without to much trouble, but if that ends up being to
difficult, having to change over to 10 really isn't super bad.


My machine's processor is a tad bit quicker, so I can't really
speak to

what type of decrease you may see, but if you just want it for
word processing and tinkering about on the interwebs, I'd guess
it'd work pretty well. Just as reference, my machine is the x220,
upgraded to an SSD, which I purchased later down the road and
installed myself.
I've also really liked the Dell Latitude machines, but it's been
a long

time since I had a dell, so I can't speak to them these days.
Just a few thoughts. :)
Take care.

Oh ... gee ... that would make sense huh? lol

I want a desktop, I would prefer windows 7 and I know that I
most likely won't find a new computer with that on it. I was
thinking buying used again off of amazon since I've had good
experience with doing that. I don't mind windows 10, but my
experience is with a computer that doesn't play well with
windows 10 so a more updated computer might be lots better.
One computer I was looking @ was:

_encoding=UTF8&colid=XFT3UT4G71GO&coliid=I2LVROXSQJE4WB&psc=1

however what sounds like basically the same thing is 4 or 5
dollars less

_encoding=UTF8&colid=XFT3UT4G71GO&coliid=I1NITMZZKYXTF8

As for price I am thinking $400 or lower if possible. But, not
so low as to get a computer that would only last me for a year
or so. Those two are the same brand and are "mini" desktops and
honestly they don't sound bad to me, but I've been out of the
loop regarding computer stuff since I lost my site and now could
care less if the computer is powerful enough to run photoshop or
the games I used to play.
When I search I would like a few more specs to look for as in
hard drive types, ram, and processor type/speed. I think that is
it, but I'm sure I'm missing something.

Hi Melissa,

Just so these good folks know, what price range, Windows 7 or
10, laptop or

desktop? This will give people a better idea as to what you
want & with what search criteria to use.
Take care.

I'm about ready to look into getting a newer if not a new computer.
It
would mean putting off stuff I've been saving for ... but I
need a working computer to actually make moneyand well I've
been putting off getting my divorce for this long I'm thinking
I can put it off a bit more, lol.

I was looking at amazon to get an idea of costs and saw some
entries for a "mini desktop computer. My thing is that I don't
need something all powerful since I usually use my computer for
word processing types of things and the internet. I don't use
my computer to listen to music or movies.
All I know is that I would want a faster processor, I'm
thinking a SSD drive, bluetooth, wireless (not muy importante,
and I can't think of anything else right now.

If I spend any money on something I want it to be on something
that will last for a while, not for forever, and it be possible
to do maintenance on it or maybe upgrade it.

I greatly value y'all's opinions.

Excuse me if I am rambling, but trying to talk myself out of
being nuerotic.

Dear, it happens when you open the Adobe Reader itself, not just a PDF file.
There is however a possibility. Maybe the document author disabled assistive technology access which is very less likely.

Hi all,

Howard, it probably means either the file is protected, or they want you
to do something with Adobe, not Windows. If I were thee, I'd invest in
DocuScan Plus and get rid of Adobe. It doesn't do graphical .pdf's.

Yes that is.

I don't have an account with them, but it would seem that they are
trying their best to make revisions. Have done this sort of thing in
the past with signing up for a Google account. It's kinda neat. You
just get a code on your cell phone and then you type it in the box.
It's much better than a CAPTCHA.

Please update Adobe Reader to the latest version. I think it's only happening in Windows XP? Are you on Windows XP?

They are located in Garland, Texas and provide refurbished computers with NVDA for, I believe it is $127. A friend of mine in Houston got one, and the computer guy at her church updated it from 7 to 10 for her. She has been very pleased with it.

Bye for now,

I think you have to follow some training then. I donated to them in the past.
