Let's get that out of the way first. It's been discussed too often but count on failures from purchase to 5 years and while you can replace this or that the ugly truth is the 5 year designs you see today.
Ok, wireless displays are just taking hold. CES 2010 found a bevy of that with a laptop that comes out TOMORROW at BB. Read about it at http://ces.cnet.com/8301-31045_1-10429305-269.html
This is very new stuff so let's give it 30 days for this to get into the shops so we can pick out a wireless display system for you.
Hang in there.
I am a semi-experienced computer user. I replaced my own power-supply once, I install my own software, hook up my own tv, stereo, etc., but all the different types of connectors and what they are for is very confusing. Like S-video and HDMI etc. I don't understand what would be best.
I'm on a limited income, but can afford to spend around 1000 dollars on a new desktop. I'm looking for something I won't have to replace too soon. For bugetary reasons I want to be able to replace parts, like a fan, a monitor or a harddrive if they fail rather than having to replace the entire thing at once.
I would like to be able to watch TV on it but would prefer a relatively small monitor, probably a 20 inch. I am into art so I have lots of images and I'd like to get into using Adobe Illustrator or something similar for image creation and manipulation. I also have lots of music files. I'd like to have an extra hard drive I can use for back-up.
What kinds of connectors should I be looking for? Is it as easy to change parts in a slimline case as it is in a regular case? Aside from a power cable, can a monitor be wireless?
I'd appreciate any advice you can offer.
