I'm getting a a new monitor (flat screen) for my partner for xmas, but was thinking if I should just go the full hog and get the hard drive as well.
The thing is I don't know what to look for, without coming across as a moron. I don't even know if it is important to get the whole kit and caboodle?
Well, what would you (both) be using the computer for? If it's just day to day activities like browsing the web, typing word documents and keeping track of things on a scheduler, then really any computer will do, like a cheap one from Dell, HP or even Walmart (with Walmart probably being the best "bang for the buck"). If you want to play games on it (not spades or solitare, but new release games that are demanding on computers), then you'll need to step it up some and get a decent machine that will play the games you want to play.
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
