I'm sure this has benn discussed 1000 times but I would appreciate help in selecting a computer system. Iknow next to nothing about computers only that I nedd one that is capable of doing documents and that I can download my digital camera pictures to. No need for games or anything like that. Any help would be great
Basically any computer that will still run can do this.
What will crank up the requirements a lot is the OS that you want to run.If that's going to be an XP, stick with the 128 Mb Ram and 1GHz processor or better.
If you want an older Windows OS, less is required (on the box of your Windows CD it will say how much of what)
If you don't want a windows OS, make sure your hardware is supported.
(If you're completely new to computers and do not have the urge to become a fully-trained system administrator, stick to windows, no matter what others may yell here.)
The easiest way is to find the cheapest one on sale in a normal computerstore.
It will serve your purposes. It usually has an OS installed (saves you the trouble).
Keep an eye on the harddisk space (now usually expressed in Gigabytes), with the pictures you need enough of that.
About the screens, no matter how big an CRT (Cathode ray tube, the big TV-like boxes) or LCD screen is, it doesn't affect the performance of your magine a bit.
It's handy if you're doing documents that you have something comparable to what those documents would look like on paper. A 17" will usually do (For both A4 and US-letter).
CRTs usually last around 7-10 years. LCDs still less, but they are getting better.
Screens are rather personal. Go look for one you like.
I don't think anyone could give you "The ultimate" advice on screens.
Hope this helped
