Update: A system has been ordered and is on the way. Thank you all.
Reminder: My tower system has a big problem and can no longer run in graphical mode. The GUI keeps locking up on random events. I need to replace it. Here’s the justification: I’m struggling to process my photos on this laptop. My large 20-inch screen works a whole lot better for that. Trying to set up an external monitor for the laptop is very clumsy. Also, I cannot run my printer from the laptop; there aren’t enough USB ports.
But I have no need for something expensive. So if you have a used tower from the Vista days or later and can donate it, I’d be glad to take it (no, XP boxes don’t have enough power). Just about any consumer grade box will do. There are no big plans to run services from it. I still have all the peripherals from the previous system: monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers, etc. Just the tower itself is all I need. If no one has one to give up, I’ll start saving my PayPal donations for it.
Pray with me for the Lord to provide.
