Me and my mom both really like to spend time on the computer. We have a Dell Dimension 2400 w/ 2.4GHz P4 and 640MB memory. I recently installed 512MB memory myself
Since we both like to spend so much time on the internet, having one computer is ... not ideal but it is working out alright. I was thinking about purchasing a computer myself to use when she needs the computer for something and/or wants to use it.
I don't have much money to spend on a computer.
I have my eye on a Compaq ... a small desktop... the kind that is like a package of printer paper. The specs (basics) are like this:
intel Celeron 1.3GHz
The ONLY questions I have about this are
a) will this computer be sufficient? My needs include ONLY internet surfing with a cable connection and chatting on AIM.
b ) what is Windows 2000 like? I have never used it and I have no idea if it is as good as XP Home...
c) How hard are these small desktops to work on? I have done a few things (basic?) including: installing new motherboard on a computer, installing memory, cd-rom drive, and sound cards. I have watched/helped someone build a computer at my school. I know that these small desktops are set up different but once you have it open is it pretty easy to navigate and work on? Never worked on a laptop. I just ask this because I would possibly like to have a CD burner "combo" drive and more memory.
Thanks for your help.
