Haven't seen much activity here in awhile...
Please enjoy this conversation-stopping post.
( Fulton is a little further than I want to drive
for a group meeting... and I have no idea how the Ubuntu
group fares at Catonsville..) OK, smack me with a wet noodle
for getting a bit lazy, or picky.... I passed a milestone birthday.
Change is in the air, and in the desktop linux environment.
Just wondering - as much curiosity as
"maybe" --- how any of the local small computer places
rate for buying a laptop or used parts ? I'm NOT
desiring any repairs. Some linux knowledge would
be good.... SCREW QUALCOM PARTS !!! - although
I might not be able to ....
More or less, I'm looking either for an outstanding
suggestion, or a "avoid at all costs"...
I know there are a number of small shops and don't know
how they stay in business -- one large client for each ??
So, I'm in SW Baltimore, and am interested in the area from
Catons/Patapso Ave, west to maybe Eliicot City,
south line maybe Washington Blvd going N. to rt. 40 ...
Of course, include all Halethorpe, Lansdowne, Catonsville,
Or would I still be better to visit Towsons Microtek.....
Or maybe one of ya'll have a laptop and some junk ....
Now that the type of local shop is speced, I guess I'd also be
looking for any of ya'll with used stuff... My first pass
would be at least a dual core, prefer 4, AMD cheaper than Intel,
8 gigs ram, 500 gig or bigger drive, and a 17" screen....
or bigger... Have thought about one of those all-in-ones to
maybe carry about...
Are you a gamer and upgraded yet again recently ?
No, I'm not interested in spending $1000....
Temper your answers with the fact I've been "sorta" looking
for 6 years ???? HAAA !!!! also looking for 2-3 junk laptops
locally for giveaway... OK to have no bricks, or batteries,
or hard disks... although one "bad" drive and one "bad" DVD
drive would be OK. I plan to break apart dramatically ....
for some look-see...
