Bionic Woman

I have to check that it is suitable for gaming so that my son can share it with me. I also need office programs so that I can do my coursework too.

Anything else that the pc has is a bonus.

When I was looking for a pc just before christmas last year I was going to buy a Compaq pc as I try to go for a good name, and it also had AMD Athlon processor but it wasn't in stock so I got the Ei system but only because it has parts that are made by HP, so I was told.

I wish I had waited though.

The cpu speed,

Hard drive,


if it's generic, the motherboard manufacturer (I like Asus, SuperMicro, ....)


Yellow Belt
Speed and the manufacturer of the machine

Also big hard drive, plenty of memory and a good graphics card.
