Now That Hurt The Budget…

indexYesterday, we went and bought a computer. A desk top computer to replace the one that had a heart attack and breathed its last a day or so ago. I have it up and running, but I still have much to do. It has a 320 gig hard drive, but…we have two 1tb drives that I have to figure out how to squeeze into the system…

That will give us 2.3 terabytes to allow Svetochka to save to her hearts content… 😉

Computer is made by DEXP; The Dexp Company was founded in 1998 in Vladivostok (Russia) by a team of skilled engineers. We started with professional system integration service for business and desktop PC assembling…

SAS to SATA

SAS to SATA

Nice computer and since assembled and built in Russia, a nice happy for poor people price also. I have almost shoehorned the two large drives into it and I do have one up and running. The other is going to take a special SAS to SATA cable and with that I can also upgrade the DVD/CD. Then Svetochka has a friend at work who has lots of computer stuff and she will try to see if he has at least one memory stick for the system we have. It has a 2gb stick, but will hold up to 8gb and I installed Windows 8.1 64bit and it is just simply borderline with only 2gb of RAM…

Aliexpress has, it if I need to get it and it is not available anywhere else for us. I need it before I leave for the village again…

I find it an interesting computer; it looks like a big tower computer, but everything inside is from and made for laptops. Everything but the case and because the case is full size, I have been able to make everything work, as I piece it together. I just have to work with the limitations of laptop components and several crucial areas missing; such as a PCI slot and or Bridge and such what knots that make computer building a piece of cake…

Abacus Calculator...

Abacus Calculator…

I like it! DEXP makes a good product from what I see so far and this computer runs cooler, quieter and not as fast as the old one. This is a dual core Celeron and we had a Tricore AMD – 2.4GHz compared to 3.3GHz…

Svetochka is happy and that means even if it is an old Abacus Calculator, I am happy also… (By the way, these abacus calculators are in use all over Russia! Thought you might want to know that…)

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
