Thanks all you folks for the kind words.. ,  and it is so true we have the best Moderators in the world.  We also show kindness on this forum---all are so willing to helpl when we run into trouble.  My new computer is just a Walmart bought  Hp--with XP Home Edition.  ,   Model #MXK 43904KS is on the sales slip., not near as expensive as my old computer but it works so good.  Much faster, etc. Until we talk again may you have a good day reap God,s blessings---Will

I bought just a cheapo E-Machine when I needed a new work computer a few years ago and then another one for the kids for Christmas and I have been very impressed with both of them.  No problems whatsoever.  I had a Dell which I had nothing but problems with and their customer service was terrible....I'd never buy another one.  So, in my experience, brand name doesn't mean a whole lot, except a higher price tag.

I don't know what version of Windows you had on your previous one but I really like the windows XP (Mac fans, I haven't tried a Mac so I can't compare it) compared to the Windows ME I had on my Dell.

Hope you and the Mrs. are doing well.

Besides OPE, I also work on computers and know exactly what your talking about. For the general use, E-Machines are about the best you can buy. A word of advice to everyone, STAY AWAY FROM DELL!!!

I must be the only one that got a good Dell!

However do they stay in business?

I have a hard time believing it Marshall! I knew this lady who brought in a Dell laptop that she just bought. She said she turned it on and within 30 seconds or so, its started smoking. I opened it up and found that there were alot of crossconnections inside!

Dell's are just ok, once you fix them.  I thought Customer Care was better than HP.  I just Compaq's and Dell's are in the same order.  Emachines are better than they used to be though.

The computer I'm on is a Frankenstien some guy built inexpensively a few years ago for my girlfriend...

It works... (keeping fingers crossed!)

Is it a fast machine or slow? Meaning, is it good for work and internet, or can it do games too?

Kinda' OK for the internet... OK for word processing...

Don't do games... but I know it would be a dog...

Slow disk drive...

Clunky keyboard...

Not even mine...
Not bad for a guy who's a computer professional !

"Deliberate often...

...means...
 when deciding what OPE to buy...
get information and consider all the options/pro's/con's... etc... (deliberate)

...then make your decision one time...

Applies to any decision really...

Thanks Dave, I totaly believe in that statement! Cause you don't want to get stuck with a lemon. My first bought trimmer is a good example of that. It was the Ryobi.
