I think it’s time to upgrade our old computer that we keep upstairs. I think we bought it in 1998. Maybe we should just scrap it instead of putting money into upgrading it? I don’t know.
The only reason we are keeping it is because we occasionally take on a boarder and when we do it’s nice for them to have a computer in their room. Even if it is old, clunky and slow! Plus, if the boarder or guest were to do something to mess up the computer I’d rather it be the old one that I don’t really care about rather than one that I use daily!
If we upgrade the computer we definitely need to get some more memory for it. We need to get IBM memory since it’s an IBM computer. Arghh … It also needs major software upgrades, but because it has a slower processor we can’t upgrade the Windows XP any further than we already have, and I’m sure some of the other software that we could upgrade on it won’t work either.
It really is sounding more and more like we need a new spare computer doesn’t it?
