Quote from: pastywhitegurl on July 13, 2022, 07:42:19 PMAt this point, I'm not thinking of switching to a laptop. I like the PC tower set up and my giant desktop Acer monitor.I don't have any desire to use Linux at this point. But something that I just thought about is whether my other components will be compatible with something newer. My Xerox Workcentre 3215 printer is 5-6 years old now. My camera, monitor and other components are all 12-15 years old. I might need to think about replacing everything.I think I'd like at least 16GB RAM in whatever I buy, so I'm thinking thats going to cost me somewhere around $1000. Machines with 32GB RAM seem to be going for $2-3000. But since I was doing everything I needed to do (well barely) with 4 GB RAM, it seems like 16GB ought to be enough. Am I thinking correctly about that?

Went as far as downloading one of the Mint versions and then some wonderful guy bought me the Dell Optiplex. If you've encountered any of my computer problem threads where I have the most basic confusions about my machine, you can see why Linux and I am not a good fit. ^_^
