  1. So was it Stockholm or Göteborg that your wife and kid went to? You and your family will probably love the 19th European Athletics Championships Göteborg 2006 http://www.goteborg.com/default.aspx?id=5576 The European Athletics Championships take place every four years between the Summer Olympics. I personally don't care for sport events. And ppl come here from all over the world for this event so the city will be PACKED. I hate crowds. Needless to say I will be hanging out on the islands for the most part, when this is going on. At the same time that is going on this year, they
  2. Well they have two listed....LCD flat and analog flat. And sometimes when you look they call them Digital flat and Analog flat. So I haven't a clue which is LCD or what is what! lol I don't have flat screen anything, so I don't know what is LCD and what is not.
  3. Yeah that is what I tried to get my sister to do the first time, and the computer store she went to, was horribly overpriced, worse then this Dell is! lol I too agree with the dislike of Dell altho IF someone had to go with a package I would say Dell over HP anyday! Can't stand either, but HP I think is far worse! Since I am sooo far away from my sister now, I thought it might just be better for her to go with a Dell, since the custom build was getting to be sooo confusing for her. I guess we know where "thought " went! lol
  4. Okay now she got a quote from Dell. Even tho they didn't get that she wanted a LCD monitor and did not want AOL. Here are the specs. Item 1 Dimension E510 Pentium® D Processor 820 with Dual Core Technology (2.80GHz, 800FSB) Qty: 1 Unit Price: $1,262.04 [CZ820H] - [222-2014] Pentium® D Processor 820 with Dual Core Technology (2.80GHz, 800FSB) [1GB5] - [311-5519] 1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 533MHz (2x512M) [EK] - [310-5324] Dell USB Keyboard [E19650] - [465-0615] 19 inch E196FP Analog Flat Panel [X300SE] - [320-4309] 128MB PCI Express™ x16 (DVI/VGA/TV-
  5. Thanks guys! I appreciate your imput. As for it being in Swedish currency, NO it's in US dollars. I just moved to Sweden. She lives in the US. Florida to be more precise. So can some of you guys give me some specs as to what you think she should be looking for? So she can go in there informed, telling the computer stores what she wants, and what she is looking to have priced. As for OpenOffice, I thought open office has programs that were simular to Word and Excel, but I was not aware of it being like publisher. How well will it be compatible with programs that wer
  6. I checked that Dell, and when you add the MS Office with publisher, it comes up to about the same price. My hope is to find out what she really needs to ackomplish what she wants, and lower that price. Way more then they want to spend.
  7. More info that might be helpful. She wanted the 64 bit processor so it could be updated to the Vista next year or whenever she wants to do it. That means she needs a bit bigger system them normal since Vista is big. She needs a scanner and printer which usually comes with a fax also. She needs a CD burner and the guy at the computer store suggested to get a DVD burner since that's what Vista will be using. She also wants a flat screen monitor he priced this for a 17 inch. She needs Microsoft Publisher to do her newsletter. She needs a database to do their church roster and she needs a wor
  8. Okay as I freely admit I don't know much about hardware! lol My sister is needing to get a new computer. She wants it mainly to be able to create newsletters for her church. And do graphics. I recommended she get a custom build, not a package such as Dell or HP. I hate those packages. Anyway, she want to a computer store and got this price and info. It seems a bit overpriced. What do you think of this system? It included MS Office with Publisher 17 inch LCD HP 6210 All in One printer, photo printer, scanner and fax DVD/CD burner Web Cam Logitech 961419
  9. another Invision forum was hacked a couple days ago, and infected. We had been working the past weekend cleaning users pc's up after it. It was not a security or computer help forum either. Cloud8 is what it was. The stupid site owner didn't feel it was her problem to close the forum. So it was left open for ppl to be reinfected all the time. The hacker put themselves in as an admin, and sent out emails to all users as well. A total mess.
  10. Oh but I did forget to add....... Volt.... I am really glad that you got to see ME twice tho! hehehe
  11. I already WAS married to a native Swede! For almost 6 years now. Now we are safe and sound in Sweden...hehehe. Altho I am still undergoing therapy for the TWO visits with you!
  12. Why do you think I left the country??? I left running and screaming for my sanity! Once was more then enough..twice?...well, it was almost the end of me!
  13. Well it's been awhile since I have been here, so I don't know alot of ppl here, very well. But I would have to say JackeL LittleEagle Jazzy Moon Bonzai Dough (now Doug, I believe) I have already met Volt, twice.
