Poll: Do you plan on buying a desktop PC again?

Cannot use my vote as it does not mention building your own, so no I will not be buying a desktop PC again but yes I will be building a desktop PC again.

I am always on the lookout for a 'charity shop' PC Desktop with W7 installed on it ... only stipulation ... must be less than £20.

Yes: One needs something upon which to conduct the Orchestra.

I think that the next iteration of PC's will be able to run two OS Systems both Windows and Android, maybe one within the other, and to act as a Base Camp for both sets of system.

An 20+" All-in-One with Windows 8 and a removable Stand. No need for a big Hard Drive, it can connect wirelessly to a NAS Drive and CD/DVD/Blu-ray Player, which could be part of the Removable Stand.

As Chronos the 2nd I don't buy, I build. Resolves the problem of what is/isn't installed on a new machine.

  Mr Mistoffelees 16:52 25 Jun 2013

Yes, although I'm another self-builder.

  john bunyan 17:32 25 Jun 2013

Yes as I have 2 slide out Caddies for back ups, and 2 scanners for Photoshop etc . Also I sometimes watch TV on it and edit music.

It would be interesting to know how the figure for desktop builders compares. Being pedantic, it could be argued that these are desktop sales - just in kit form!

may be yes or may be no

Aitchbee u b very lucky to get a 2nd hand computer snce it is an electrical item most charity shops would have to employ someone to test the computer for safety issues

  Aitchbee 21:27 25 Jun 2013

finerty - I have completed [successfully] a college computer course on PC maintenance and troubleshooting faults [admittedly it was about ten years ago] and I know a thing or two about safety when it comes to electricity.

PS. I might be a suitable candidate for a job in a charity shop as an electrical 'tester' ... no joking ;o]
