Hello to everyone in this Forum. I'm not an Apple user with computers I prefer Windows and I know the big controversy about that
my son and I, who happens to love Apple Computers, we discuss it many times.I found after I built my first computer that I really loved it
the hardware that is. The present computer I'm running cost me about $3500 in parts and after I got it all together and running
running speed test on it and graphic speed and comparing it to computers sold commercially the computer I have worth about $6500.
On this computer I run a household server as well doing my personal work on it. I enjoyed the hardware part so much that now
I work on family and friends computers no labor all they have to do is buy the parts or I buy them in and reimbursed. Since I retired 14 years ago
I found myself bored just following my investments and TV so working on computers helps me keep busy.
I'm 59 years old and I first started in computers back in 1970. The first computer I ran was an IBM 360 in college. I went thru several computers
probably more than a dozen over the years.My present computer is a Windows 7 Ultimate, Intel i950 3.06 GHz, 24 GB of memory and
4.5 TB of internal disk storage.
I do have Apples iPad one, and four iPods two of which are 64 GB iTouch. And I love my iPod's and my iPad.
Other hobbies reading, continued education, radio controlled airplanes, stamp collecting and music. That's about it.
