sorry for the off-topic and the cross-posting, and hope this is ok. i am
a mac person, and i need to purchase a pc ASAP. i know a little bit
about what i want, but i'm just don't have the time to research all the
and outs and any suggestions, recommendations, and advice would be greatly
appreciated. pls respond off-list.
i just want something basic, with enough memory to have a couple of
applications open (forehelp, word, pagemaker), sound cards, with the
ability to upgrade, a color printer. something my kids can use to play
their games. i don't have a lot of money. and this would basically be
the second computer. i do some work where i have trouble going from a pc
