The main reason I need a new computer, is because I am a developer. I develop membership sites using every imaginable form of multimedia. You name the multimedia modality, I'll be using it.
I can't use this useless dinosaur of a "computer" any more. Time to smash it to bits and start over with a decent computer system.
I am really partial to HP computers. I found a HP computer at Sam's for $1100 that has 620 gigs of hard drive and an unbelievable 4 gigs of RAM (system memory). What the...? I thought Vista OS can see only 3 gigs of RAM? The OS is 64 bit Vista Home Premium.
My question is, Can I use Camtasia on a 64 bit version of Vista Home Premium? Can I use Microsoft Office 2007 on a 64 bit version of Vista Home Premium?
Or should I play it perfectly safe and stick with 32 bit?
Also, What is the MOST POWERFUL DESKTOP COMPUTER that a developer can buy, short of a Supercomputer? What is the most amount of RAM I can get in a desktop? The reason I am so terminally OBSESSED with RAM, is because I am going to be using video applications on this setup. I am developing multimedia membership sites with all multimedia modalities included and I will give the members whatever they ask for!!
If any of you on this forum develop multimedia membership sites, you'll understand what I am talking about.
Thank you very much for all of your input and suggestions!
