When did you buy your first computer? Are you satisfied of its performance? Do you often upgrade your PC? How much have spend for your PC in estimation? I bought my computer 6 years ago. At the time, the price was quite expensive. I was not satisfied of its performance. My first computer was at 850 Mhz speed. Then, i gradually upgrade it. Now, it is 3 Ghz. I spent over than $1000 in estimation for my computer. What about yours?

I got my first comp. in 2004, I had to save up for it and was very happy when I bought it. I resently got a laptop so I could do my business work on it and found that it's more convienent to walk around the house and not have to worry about staying in one spot. I never upgrade my computers. I spent $400 on each comp. and they are still in great condition.

Well I just bought my laptop last year and it is great. It is 3 ghz, 512 mb, 40 gb hard drive and I just love it's speed. I haven't upgraded anything on it yet as I don't realy need to. I think the first thing I will upgrade is my dvd cd rw drive. I think I will upgrade it to a dvd burner and not just a cd burner. The computer I had before my laptop, I had for 7 years. I did upgrade that and by the time I was done it was no longer a Gateway but instead a white box. I have a friend who is a computer whiz and he did the upgrades for me. He chaged the modem, memory, hard drive, cd drives, speakers and just about everything else. We never did upgrade the processor though so it got to be too slow for me.

One of my computers is 5 years old and the one I am using now is about 6 months old. My first one was a Dell and I had nothing but problems with it. It is in my closet right now needing repairs. I now have an Emachine and everything seems to be okay with it so far. I have spent a total of about $1200.00 on computers so far.

Wow, I had only spent $800 on both my comps. and they are still in working condition. I don't think I'm going to buy a Dell computer again. When they have problems, it's a pain to get fixed.

I bought my pc 4 years ago and yeah, it was too much expensive. I was n' satisfy with my pc as it came still and did n't work and i had to restart my pc. I often make new changes on my pc by buying new things of pc e.g. mouse, fans etc. My RAM is n't enough. I often have to change it and have to increase it but my pc is working very well now-a-days.

It's been eight years now since my father bought me my first computer! And until now I'm still using it and it's still okay!
