well, as many of you dont know or care, my pc died.
So I just picked this up. Should be here next week.

HP A6700Y Desktop 1.8Ghz 500GB 4GB AMD QUAD CORE X4

My old pc started shutting off randomly, So i thought it was the PS, So I took it out and swapped it. still no joy. So i took th heatsink off to clean it, and the chip came with it..so whatever, i proceded to wash it off in the sink, being caefull not to get the chip wet, when it falls off the heat sink into the sink. whatever, So i stick it back in, it fitghts me a litle, turn it on and nothing...btw, the heat sink fan also got the sink treatment, so its flinging water around for a few before it dies too. So i take the fan, heatsink and chip out again, and noticed that I installed the chip upside down. I bent a few of the chip prongs in the process. So I get the tweezers and get them straight. reinstall every thing. great starts working like normal. Then shuts off. So I figure now its a OS prob. Do a reformatt on C, Start to rload windows and it would never finish. got about 1/3 done then it would shut off. So I bought a new one.

I looked and played with the macs, but i just couldnt get the feel for it. I sopose if I got one I would like it just fine.
My biggest worry is running the MS Vista. If I dont like it, I will upgrade/downgrade to XP

I hate Vista. I have it on my laptop. When I customized it there wasn't an option between XP and Vista. I wish I knew how to put XP on it.

I like Vista a hell of a lot more than XP. Haven't had any problems running Vista yet, and I've had it for over a year.

Vista is a distant cousin to AOL.

Parallels. Runs windows virtually on OSX, we use it at work. Not to much of a performance hit either, it suprised me.

I'd still prefer to just make a dual boot mac though. If I could ever justify the cost of apple hardware that is.

so...I hooked it up thursday... Have had nothing but issues with it. I am sending it back today for a refund. The hard drive is messed up, while doing a diagnostics, it would go to 98 percent, drop back tp 70, do that 3 times then it would cancell.
Also I has norton on it. Ive got a 30 day trial version of it..Its expirded after 2-3 days? Not that I wanted it..but it seems to cause issues with Vista.

btw, I like vista so far, Only thing is the font size is screwy, It wont adjust to a normal size. Its either super small or gigantic. Maybe a new flat sceen or 2 will fix that as this moniter may be out dated.

Lastly, I blame all my PC problems on Snow for hooking my up with Utorrent and btjunkie.

So, Running the new one again. So far so good. Also Aol Beta works well with vista. Now to reload all the crap.

I was really getting sick of looking at this.
It was like perpetual PC freeze for weeks.
