Griff can you give more details on this system ? As most know what is in the US comes to Europe too.I could not jump through their new, third-party security system hoops
Also it is a pity you live not near to me I could easily assemble a PC for you from all the parts I still have lying around. I was electronic / PC freak for quite a while also had a small business up to 3 years ago when I needed to give it up (Pc repair, software installing, network etc.).. I am using now an old PC build from parts around 2011/2012 and guess what it still works for most things I need. I am also on this PC still on Win7 (I have also 10 but do not use atm.). All this BS you need the newest stuff is mostly crap when you know how to optimize the machine and do NOT want to do the newest 3D games or CAD or watch super high res videos.
Here a hint, the newer the hard/software is the higher is the possibilty to spy on you, as the devices got much smaller and more effective over the years. YES this benefits the user, but also gives more opportunities for certain companies to get your data. I am not saying I am not spied on but not so easily like others with new PCs / Smartphones and who have F-book etc. If one is at YT for example they will record anything you do there anyways. And then mark you or shadow ban you (I am LOL)
@Phil Jayhan : This forum seems great, a good choice Is this free or does it cost?
