minimum spec comp

Guy at work is looking to buy his sister in law a basic computer. He has seen an ultimate bargain one that is still running a 1.8 ghz proc. (no Idea what model)

Its for basic web and email. Is it going to be able to handle current web sites with all the animations and scripts?

Nope.,,, well yes, but it will be slower than balls

for around 350 you can get a quad core desktop if you take the time to hunt around.

Well, I'm running 1,83Ghz with 512MB SDRAM and I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone. If you keep it clean, I guess it'll do for really basic things but when you get ...for example, genmay threads with 50ppp filled with youtube videos of shitty music no one likes to listen to... yeah, no. I'd guess you could get better for virtually free?


(before someone laughs at my ghetto shit, I do have a relatively new laptop that was built this decade )

1.8Ghz P4? No. Some AMD 1.8Ghz quad core? Maybe.

I'm using an HP Pavillion I've owned for 5 years now. 1.7Ghz processor and it runs fine. Starts up fairly quickly, and I don't have problems viewing any web page. I only ever upgraded the power supply to support the piece of shit Radeon graphics card that died on me a couple of months ago.

Since I no longer play WOW, I said to fuck with it and didn't buy another. Maybe one of these days i'll upgrade my desktop, but as long as this thing keeps running the way it does i'll keep using it.

I think when you start viewing flash videos, especially at full screen, is when you'd notice a big difference.

don't build one, don't buy a used one. getting anything less than that even if it's just for web browsing doesn't make sense because no one just does email and web browsing. everyone will watch youtube, play flash games and eventually want to do more shit

most netbooks are only around 1.6ghz and they seem to handle web and email well. only problem might be with streaming video depending on graphics card
