HC and Lins, your computer acumen is impressive!

And then, there's me. As Sergeant Schultz (of Hogan's Heroes) would say, "I know NOTTING!"

I've got a nice, fast Dell and a very intelligent engineer-husband. I don't trouble my pretty little head with the details! :D I don't know what I'd do without a cable modem- and my husband, of course. ;)

wgd30gig(way small now)
512 crucial mem(need more)oc's ok for me

love tweaking-don't have to trace chipsets anymore to gain multi's and can mess with most things in bios.

Mac enthusiast here: Dual 1.8GHz G5. Sweet machine and a beauty to look at. In all, our little office holds 2 desktop PCs, a Vaio laptop, my G5, and on alternating days of the week, my wife's Dell laptop from her work and a Titanium Powerbook from my work. Oh, right, four printers and a scanner, wired network with wireless router and cable broadband to boot. Oh, the networking headaches on the PC side of things...

Just depends what you're familiar with. I think PCs are pretty easy to network. Easier before Microsoft decided to make it "easier" anyway. XP's worse than the early 95, 98, or ME.
