OK, I’m going to indulge again, because I’m in theory allocating far too much money from the sale of The Blog Herald (which should be settled shortly) to new things than I should be, but given I’m Problogging full time now one important thing I’m going to need is a new computer, because my nearly 4 year old custom built (I built in from scratch) AMD XP1800 box with 512mb of ram, two hard drives (20gb and 80gb), 7 year old box, keyboard and mouse (all from my computer before) my second hand 17 inch CRT monitor (bought it at auction) are getting worn and I’m sick of waiting 3-5 minutes for Windows to boot in the morning.
What I’m thinking about: a AMD 64bit 3200 (or do they have faster chips now?) with 2gb ram, 250gb hard drive, 19 inch LCD monitor. But then there’s the Mac, and as much as I’ve always appreciated Mac’s from afar now they are a lot cheaper than they use to be maybe I should switch?
Give me your advice: what new computer should I buy. What do you use for blogging and/ or what would you recommend I use.
