    and offered me a deal on a new one.

    I have a freaking Hitachi solid state TV set still going strong after 32 years.

    And a microwave still going strong after 23 years.

    My pc is about 6 years old too. I'm keeping it. Even if it breaks down, I'll have it fixed. But I am not getting a new pc. They changed stuff too much and I'm a crotchety old lady that doesn't like change. :tongue:

    sucks for you. buy even the $500 PC from best buy with 4 GB of ram and a dual core chip and you will see what you are missing... also I hope you still aren't using a CRT monitor unless you want to be blind by 60

    I am so behind the curve on tech it is pathetic.

    Just got DSL.

    IMO - high def TV is overratted. (doesnt come close to color TV in the 60s)

    You know color when you see it.

    Still not sure when I am seeing hi -def

    Any computer that is more than two weeks old is obsolete. Take whatever he is willing to give you for your antique and buy the new one. As a matter of fact, to stay current with the quickly developing technology, buy a new computer every 6 months. It's the right thing to do.

    I can't function anymore unless I have at least 8 processors and 12G of RAM. I crave computer power.

    You have to update yourself. These things you mention are so inexpensive right now.
