I've been thinking of buying a new computer.
I have a Compaq Presario for some time now.
It has a 2.7 Celeron CPU
My knowledge of computers is VERY little...
I've been looking at the HP site on the internet.
Some of the computers show CPU's 2.20 etc, in that range. Which seem to be slower than the one I already have.
But now, they must be a lot faster with what they call Dual-Core, Triple-Core, etc etc..
Can anyone offer me suggestions as to what all this means and compares to my old Compaq Presario. I don't understand what I read. I've been looking at the Elite and near near that level. Maybe I don't really need something like that. I really don't know.
 Will I be able to run my Windows XP Home software on Vista? 32-bit right?
What about the 64-bit? What is to be run on that? I guess we are being led in that direction by Microsoft. What are the advantages? Just speed?
 What about I think is called PCI slots? I install my own Sound Card. I read somewhere that there were not any PCI slots in one of the computers. I could be wrong about that. Maybe that was Dell or some other brand.
Well that is about all I know about computers. I have no understanding regarding the tech specs I read. Or what the 'options' would do for me. I suppose best to leave them alone to save me some money
I will appreciate any information and suggestions anyone has to offer.
