The cheapest I could get a full computer with mouse, monitor, keyboard and speakers was £250... Running Ubuntu Netbook remix (Was for a new computer user)
AMD Sempron 140 2.1Ghz (Uses the same core and the Athlon 440, just a locked core)
2GB DDR3 Corsair RAM
250GB HDD, Caviar blue.
Usual DVD Burner
16" 1366x768 Monitor
Onboard Geforce 6250e Graphics
Mouse & Keyboard
3W RMS Just-Enough speakers
Built it myself simply because I struggled to find anything beyond old celerons or atom based computers for £250.
Prebuilts have their place, people need to stop mocking them because not everyone has the time or expertise to do it. and some people just like having a single, simple, warranty.
"How do you connect your harddrive to your motherboard" - Who the cock cares, he just spent his life savings on something to his eyes truthly epic and you're not even going to say congratulations.
OK sorry, i seem to have went a little overboard there. Time to see if i can go change that post into something else. lesson learned, I'm gonna congratulate him tomorrow, Although, i still think 12 gigs is a little overboard if he is not rendering anything.
EDIT: Just to let you know, he has been pulling pranks on me since the 5th grade, so i use alot of scepticism around him, if i see this computer, in fully functioning order, i will congratulate him properly.
People in this thread are forgetting that content should not be created, but rather fallen upon.
Someone just spent £25,000 on a mac book pro? Post it, but don't start pointing out it's flaws and what not, as you're not only hurting people's feelings, but making the average IT-literate guy look like a complete elitist asshole.
Have a cookie, Odellus, for being such a great help to the Hardware and Software section.
WOAH WOAH lets all calm down take a nice sip of tea
You don't need to be coy, Roy.
Sorry, I just had to
Today I was talking to a few friends of mine. They said that you can mod a computer to play Xbox 360 games and that you can mod a PS2 to play X360 games. :doh:
I doubt they were telling the truth. My efforts to explain how it's not possible went unnoticed.
yeah theoretically you could do it, but it would pretty much be an Xbox 360 in a PS2 case
you mean this fella?
Also, I like my two OSs. Windows ME and XP :buddy:
Why do you even have Windows ME installed?
I used to have XP, Vista and Ubuntu. Wiping it and hackinthosing.
I have content!
So i just got back from school.
My school has recentley become an academy. i kinda dislike the uniform.
I had i.t(or computer class ). the computers had win7 (before this change the computers were xp).
i was all "you win some you lose some!".
i was wrong... Right click is disabled :smithicide:
Also, on my old school they had set the screen resolution to 800x600. I normally just right clicked to change the res to something bit higher, but one day they decided to fuck the system up and disable right click. Browsing the web with ie6 is a pain in the ass. Now imagine it in a low ass resolution where horizontal scrolling is on every site imaginable.
Now, the most stupid thing about the whole thing was this:
You couldn't fullscreen ie for some reason. I asked the teacher why, and he said: "It's for security purposes" and I was all like :wtc:
Why must every school make it a pain to use their computers?
It's to make people more computer illiterate by not showing them what is possible.
BTW, has anyone tried pressing the unused key for context menu when right click is disabled? It could work though.
In I.t I was moved from my normal seat next to some others, The first day there I heard the guy next to me say he was planning on buying photoshop. I asked why with the slightest amount of hope that he actually does some good Photoshopping and art, instead I see he wants it do more of this:
Edit: Eek how does one thumb tag again.
