PC wanted, Bangor area.

I'm visiting a friend in Bangor and he's struggling along with a very old PC and I thought it worth an ask if anyone has one a bit less old that they might want to get rid of?

Try and get him one with Windows 10 and see him REALLY struggle. Wink

He's running Mint V12 at the moment and I'm sure you don't need me to tell you how out of date that is...

I should have one

Cheers. Let us know what & how much?

This is on win 7, will not run anything else. Failed with win 10 and mint

Tenner or more if it can be spared to msf please

Also have LCD monitors, prolly 17" if needed

Can I get back to you on that? He's not best good at learning new things, and doesn't readily ask for help so we're probably better off sticking to a system he's familiar with.

That said, I have another friend, similarly struggling...

Are you sure that's enough? That'll barely cover postage. Confused

I spent at leasdt 2 days trying to install win 10 then mint, another day getting win 7 reinstalled. There's no amount of money that can get me that part of my life back. If they can afford more than a tenner then that's great. Nick

Five grand. Dance for me.

I'll tell him 20... but it'll have to wait 'till pay day.

It seems that he wants nothing to do with Windows. Funny chap. Confused

I can find it a home if you're keen to be rid of it, but meanwhile, we're back to the drawing board for the man in Bangor...
