As of today, I’m still sitting in the breakdown lane of the Information Superhighway. My computer’s still dead, and I have yet to purchase a replacement. I’ve done some shopping and found a couple good possibilities. I’m trying to strike a balance between low cost and power. I’m not a gamer, so I don’t need state of the art graphics or the latest bells and whistles. I do, however, want something that won’t be obsolete in a year. I’m hoping to have something by Saturday afternoon. Then I get to screw around with Windows 8 to see if I can find a way to live with it.
