The PC I use is now over 5 years old. Today one of the graphics cards decided to play up, so I’ve had to revert to the internal card and go from two displays to one, which is a bit of a shame. I liked the dual 1280×1024 display set up a lot. Mail in one screen, browser in another etc.
So the obvious quick fix may be is a wide screen single display… but sadly the internal graphics card won’t support more than 1280 x 1024.
So do I just get another graphics card… my machine is quite old so it’s AGP only… although you can still get those cards.
So may be a new graphics card and a wide screen display.
I’ve been thinking about upgrading to a new machine anyway… but what… another PC, with Windows 7 may be… or may be a Mac Mini.
I need to sit down and look at my real requirements and compare the two to see what I actually need.
At first sight Windows machines look cheap and Mac’s expensive… but specifying them up to similar performance, there’s not much difference in them really.
Anyway my spare display can now be used on my notebook, or on my old G4 Mac over in France!
