Well.... I had the older Leopard Mac OS and I wanted to play Diablo3 which needed Snow Leopard or better, but they only have physical copies of Snow Leopard which would take a few days to get in the mail. So I went to commandeer a copy of Snow Leopard... But then you needed to put it on a DVDR, but I live in the middle of nowhere and the closest store that would have that is an hour away and I want to waste the gas. So another way was to partition the HD and load it that way. So I went to partition the required memory and my HD died! So then I had to drive to town anyway to have a Mac/PC repair store install a new HD / OS for me. The guy at the store didn't even know you could partition a Mac HD on the macOS, lol.

So, due to my impatience and lack of research prior to Diablo3 I ended up buying the Collectors Edition of Diablo3 for $100 and the new HD / OS load up / Labor cost me $350. So $450 for a game that I later learned wasn't really complete, a gateway back into WoW (which I will never play again), and has no end game... Awesome!

Oh yea, I also left my portable HD with my design back up files and Adobe CS software in Michigan and my parents can't find it... AWESOME!

Guess I'll stick with my new old $20 pc bought from thrift shop. My last $15 pc died on me about 10 days ago so I went out and bought a brand new bottom of the line e-machine at Walmart. It had 4 gigs of ram, 500 gig hd, but right out of the box it would loose the internet connection every time I put it to sleep. I know it was just a bottom of the line model, but I still expected it to function well from the start. I'm on and off the computer, probably 20 times a day. After speaking to the tech support in bumf**k India, people who English is a 2nd language, and have such heavy accents that you can't understand them. It's frustrating talking to customer service that hires people off the street. I'm by no means a computer expert, but when I know more about the machine then tech support does, we're all in trouble. Anyway I took the computer back and got my $20 compaq. It's old and slow, but I got it full to the brim with 1.5 gig memory. It gets on the internet every time, so I guess I can live with that. And win xp runs all my old programs just fine.
