    What are your thoughts on this?

    I am pondering buying a new computer for around 500 bucks. I need to use autocad and office (excel really). The problem is my current computer hangs like a mofo doing most things. I did run antivirus & antispyware so I suspect my current pc is clean. Here are the specs on my current laptop

    1.06ghz intel core 2 duo 2gb ram winxp professional with office 2007

    The pc I am looking at is a desktop with amd dual core 2.8ghz with 4gb ram and win vista 64bit.

    My only problem with going with the desktop is money is tight and I can always go on campus and use their PCs. I do drive 25 miles 1 way to get to campus though, which means I use almost 2 gallons of gas on one commute. So what would you do?

    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.

    back up your stuff and put a fresh copy of windows on your computer. you probably have a lot of bloat from old crap that has built up. anti-spyware and anti-virus can't really address that. if all you need is CAD and excel, i wouldnt pay $500 for it

    the difference between a new, store bought laptop and a clean install of just win xp pro is immense.
