Abstract

How can you call yourself a serious computer user if you don't have a 33MHz 486 system with a 16 1024768 Super VGA screen and 300MB disk drive Run right out and get the new goodiesotherwise, you're wasting your precious time. The above is an extreme position. On the other hand, if you're still using the equivalent of an IBM PCXT or, worse yet, an original PC, you're at the other extreme. Quite apart from the hype, you would almost certainly benefit from a more powerful PC. For most of us in the real world who are spending real dollars for equipment to serve real needs, the decisions can be tough upgrade, replace, or let it be And, if upgrading is the answer, what should you upgrade This column deals with hardware questions. While there are few firm rules, there are some reasonable guidelines to consider. The author also provides notes from JanuaryJune 1991 PC literature it's been a great period for powermongers
