My dad makes computers. Only my last one lasted 6 months and the hard drive went out. I'm thinking of buying something new instead. The problem with "home-made" is that he gets the parts from different places and they are ticking time-bombs before something goes out.
I'm thinking of getting a laptop as that is something he can't make and I really want one.
Any suggestions on brand?
My original desktop was a compaq and it lasted a good 6 years and eventually started making noises, although it still ran... I'm not against getting a new desktop but I don't want to upset my dad.
I'm really upset because I love taking pictures and I lost 6 months worth of photos which are not replaceable. I was planning on backing it up this week... Only it black screened on me. My dad says the hard drive failed and I won't be able to get anything off of it.
