YAY! Hard Drive failure...


Recommended Posts

:/ sorry to hear this news. Hope all goes well getting your replacement.


By chance, do you remember all your current setup's components? My sister and brother-in-law are looking to have me build one for them and if yours--besides the HDD, is functioning well, it would save me the step of having to search for compatible parts for the build.

and grab any RAM you want with these prices :D

As of now my near future update plans will be to get more storage and probably a solid state.


So yeah! good luck to them. Oh and I went out and bought a cheapy optical drive.

I can't carry a desktop to China on a whim...



Laptop wise, maybe one of these?

Key things to look for in a laptop:

- Dedicated Graphics

- RAM (though upgradable, good to know if it can support more than 4GB like 2 x 4 GB sticks)

- CPU - Intel Core i series for the win (sandy bridge is optimal, might get a good deal on a last gen Core i5)
