I did not start out thinking I would become a Digital Photographer..I just bought a Desktop right out of the blue..
It became apart of my Internet Surfing/I was useing an Internet Reciever made by COMPAq..
I had been making CDs on my JVC CD Recorder for my Portable CD Player..and useing a Cell Phone..made by NOKIA..
I dropped the Cingular account and bought a PC..
I called DELL(still have that Catalog)..
and a salesperson sold me a DELL Dimension 2350(P4)..
and within a couple of months I was researching DVD-movie making..
I added about $$400.00 as upgrades to the Dimension and it stayed alive for about 3-4 years(very heavy workload)..
And I re-built it into a P4 3.0 GHz..Intel D915GAG Mobo..500-watt PSU..1GB RAM..XP-Pro SP2..
So now in the realm of building a PC..my budget is revived..
Laptops are nice..I would consider owning a Laptop..
But it would be a luxury..
I actually spent $$179.00 on a 7-inch LCD Screen to use w/the OUTPUT of my Camcorder..
Since I like to water proof..this was the way to go..
But I did not know about the Panasonic TOUGHBOOK..but that's $$2000.00..
Desktops can handle the peripherals..
a Laptop might NOT.
What is your primary computer?
- Desktop (By choice or necessity?)
- Laptop (By choice or necessity?)
- Equal time on both (Which one do you prefer?)
- Other (What is it?)
