    Well, I have only my single desktop. (I once had a laptop--I think I purchased it in the late 1990s--but I sold it for a mere $25 to our housekeeper, several months ago, as I never used it anymore. But perhaps I should keep a spare.)

    All my computers are mutts.

    I like to think of them as... um... "multicultural". lol

    Eventually, the Cupertino Fruit Company is going to declare my Macintosh as past its Use-By date.

    Since it's basically, in hardware and motherboard-logic, a robust machine...even if deliberately made useless for independent computing, as most remotes can't be searched, copied off or to...those being "features" added to tether Fruit Company cucks to the Mothership...

    ...with those issues...there's a guy in town who will load Linux onto it. For money. And he's not cheap. But since the thing is almost ten years old, and still, itself, usable...just obsoleted by the Macincucks at the Fruit Company (led by the Big Fruit, Timmy Cuck)...it'll have no value unless I have that upgrade done.

    That should see me through to the tail-end of my computing career.

    i'm on my third keyboard and just installed new led screen in my ancient dell laptop.
    Ride me back home to a much better place
    Blue skies and sunshine and plenty of space.
    Somewhere where they would just leave you alone
    Somewhere that you could call home.

    2 laptops that are Dell's. 2 media box's and 2 desktops are homemade. All run linux. We haven't used Micro$oft for 20 years.

    A flag worth dying for is a flag worth protecting.
    IN TRUMP I TRUST

    I built my own from parts I purchased different places. My latest purchase was a lighted keyboard that really helps.

    The first couple of desktops i had back in the 80's were hand built, but the snag with hand building is you can get problems when yo uhave slight mismatches between hardware. In the old days thes ewoud lcause BSOD's, nowadays they ar eles scommon but can make it run slow or do odd things.

    I found in the end it was better and quicker to get a second hand production machine and improve it. And even better is get a decent file server , stick a better graphics card in and new O/S use it as a desktop.

I've got a logitech keyboard & mouse but I'm a bit unhappy with the keyboard. It's not a plug in so it skips letters sometimes & I have to sit a certain way for it to connect. That seems to be a common problem with logitech now days.

    I had to get this keyboard because one morning about 4am I got up to get more coffee. I filled the cup & then had to take the dogs out before returning. Finally I grabbed my coffee & headed back to the computer which had gone into sleep mode. I sat in my chair (in total darkness) & sat on my keyboard. What a pain in the ass in more ways than one.
    On the political side of your thread, no Marxist is going to call you a racist.

    Your computer system is politically correct, diversity.
