How to buy a computer

11/29/05 | by [mail] | Categories: computer/tech

I'm giving a presentation at the Cass County Public Library in Archie this Thursday about buying a computer. It will be for the non-technical crowd, buying a computer for a kid or getting into computers for the first time. I'm hoping to help them sort through everything you need to think about when picking out a computer. My iMac G5 will be making an appearance, but I'll have a PC there, too. I'll be extolling the virtues of Mac OS X (the librarian recently switched to Mac on my advice). If the attendees don't take my advice, then we may have to do a seminar called How to secure Windows XP in 9 easy steps. If they skip that, too, then maybe they would come back for How to remove spyware and viruses from Windows in 47 easy steps.

If you're in the area you can catch the How to buy a computer presentation at 6:30 pm, Thursday, December 1 at the Archie branch of the CCPL.



I’ll take those latter two classes…if you got removing spyware and viruses down to a manageable 47 steps, I’m in.

Are you going to give a powerpoint presentation? I’d like to see the slides.

I thought there were three easy steps to fixing a Windows Computer:

  1. Format Hard Drive
  2. Install Unbuntu
  3. Figure out how to use linux
