Old Compaq | prairiedog71's Blog


  Recently got sister's old Compaq from 2002.  She had so many programs loading on start up that saying it was slow is an understatement.  The original hard drive in it is in poor health and its replacement probably only has a few years left.  But it can have more memory than the older HP (1 Gb) and if necessary I still have a 160 Gb  & a 40 Gb I can install.  I can install Linux and see how well it will work from remote.
