Ive been watching game videos & reviews on Youtube.
Damn that site is addicting.
Well,Skyrim is just more than I can resist.
found an original DVD on Craigslist for $5 !!!
It would probably run just fine on my Laptop.

a HP Probook 6470b w 8G Ram.
It has an i5-3230m CPU w intel HD4000 Graphics


well this dude on craigslist is selling an

HP 6300 w/an i5 for $120 all it needs is a video card & bam NICE entry level Gaming Machine

Bestbuy had a closeout RX550 Video card ... less than $80 with tax


And just B4 Xmas Walmart has a 32" 1080p HP Monitor for $199

So just over $400 and I have a quite capable lil gaming machine..

Also Wally's had an Elder Scrolls online DVD for $20..

I think everythings free after that.





I said Duh!

What if I SHOULD have made this post HERE!

Why is it that Im stuck in a conundrum..?
Why is it that oddly I have enuff $$$ to buy ANOTHER *BLEEP*in computer or 2..?

Why is it that I have 3 maybe 4 operation Desktops
{Win 95 ,XP, NoOS & that Gaming 1}mostly old junk?

Why is it that Also 4 functional laptops, 2 Id like to sell.

Why is it that I wanna buy a $120 elitebook
{Matches my best}

Why is it that & another $120 HP6300 with an Awesome CPU to future proof myself against M$oft?
Why is it that supposedly you can still put Linux on a Win10 machine ...but burnt once twice shy?
Why is it that but if I just wait it out I can buy MUCH better spec laptops in the future..But will it run Linux?
Why is it that it feels like Damned if I do Damned iffin I dont..?


Guess what ?
The guy Im buying stuff from came up with a BETTER COMP for only $150 !!!!
I now own a HP Deskpro 6000 G1
its gotta a slightly faster CPU & alot better onboard graphics.
Its a gaming potato...just good enuff as is ...yet has an upgradability factor with addition of a Nice Video card
Im all done buying computers for the foreseeable future.!




well.....unless I see a Real Bargain...

Someone is selling that EXACT Elitebook for $85....
I was hoping to get $100 for my older laptops...But I would gladly trade ANY of them for this one& add $25....
Meaning I can sell mine for less..Hmmmm

ARGH!

Stop me someone... B4 I buy Again..
I CAN NOT Afford alla these bargains!!!

Why is it that it appears NOT to be my Comp thats messing up but the Spectre/Meldown safe Kernal I switched to....?

What if switching back to the original vulnerable kernal has solved what became a dire problem..?
