  1. I get the impression from the professionals in the computer repair that the current HPs are alot shittier than they used to be. But its good that old one lasted that long. I’d love to steal that card reader though and somehow cram it into my new laptop XD no use for a SD or Memorystick reader at the moment.

    • Several different workers at Best Buy, and other places, have told us that we can, if needed, switch everything in the tower to a new box, if needed, so they might have changed something in recent years. I do know that the power source isn’t too hard to remove. Josh already checked it out on the old tower. 🙂 It’ll work good enough to be a decent computer for the kids 🙂
