If so, then it's entirely possible to plug both computers into a router, then let a family member use one in a different room. Unfortunately, you've not told us any specifics about your preferences..
Do you even have a family? Do you need two computers? Is the new computer going to be busy downloading files or converting videos? If so, a second computer might allow you to continue surfing the net, or doing business chores, while the other machine works..
How do you use the computer? Personal home use? Business use?
There are a lot of charities around that could use a functioning computer.. Is that an option?
Let us know what you want?
Hope this helps.
I'm getting a second computer, essentially the same as the one I have now, except the new one has twice the ram and hard drive space. Aside from a minor display glitch I'm having with the old one, it's run perfectly (just like new, actually, as it was just wiped).
What I want to know is what I can do with the old computer. I hear a lot of talk about master/slave and home networks and such, but I don't know what I'm doing.
Can anyone recommend something, or point me in the right direction?
