My Family and Their Hand-me-down Dinosaur...

Today little brother brought home a used computer from school.  Is it a used computer with Windows Vista or Windows XP?  NO.  He brought home a USED Dell Demintion 4550!  This thing is a fuckin dino cerca 2003!  It runs on Windows 2000, and its hard drive has as much storage as my Acer Aspire One netbook.  Hell i don't even think we can even use our printer on it!  And since the computer is used, there is no telling what kind of abuse it went through with its last owner!

I swear when I get this job at walmart, I'm using my money to buy my family a proper computer...

You could strip it and rebuild it

What's nice is as of lately, laptops with a nice chunk of memory, as well as desktops, are getting cheaper and cheaper, as well as easier to not only buy, but replace. I got the laptop i'm on now for $329.99, $30 of that was an extended liquid damage warranty that would cover free replacement. Granted, it was from Best buy, but I arguably, got the Best Buy. /terrible pun.
They wanted to attempt to charge me $75 to have Geek Scam 'set up' the laptop for me, which I quickly, and somehow politely turned down. All they'd do is tell me it came with viruses and they had to reinstall the OS, and not bother removing the bloatware I had to sit through hours of to remove. xD;
But I digress, I hope you get this job! <3
