Hi sorry to trouble......I want to get into b/band as my area i live in has just got it up & running..When i rang for details the operator said that i needed at least " intel pentium 2 or above" i have intel celeron r ..... is my machine strong enough to take b/band?
A quite modest processor will cope with BB (I recently upgraded from a 550MHz Slot1 to a PentiumIII 1GB and all round surfing use is no different) - your CD rewriter probably transfers data quicker whilst burning a disk.
Tiscali's minimum specs, for instance, are:
# Pentium 200Mhz # 32MB RAM # Four-speed CD-ROM player # Video card/display 800 x 600, 256 colours # 150MB free on your computers hard drive # Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000 Professional or XP. Macs are compatible with Broadband but are not supported by Tiscali. # A USB port that can supply 500 ma (a rectangular port/plug approximately 12mm wide x 4mm high that allows you to plug in peripheral devices such as modems, printers, MP3 players, webcams etc.)
Obviously something with a bit more punch is better but not absolutely essential for general use.
