There we have it i guess you put words on why i miss the real deal.
See what you can do with so little yet have something fun\different to play around with. I personally loved to get the most out of my systems and also liked that some things did take longer =slower like copy stuff and disk access .
I guess for the thread i made up my mind to build a new system again. Not sure what i need and want yet but that will come later .
Thank you all for your input you have inspired me allot.
