At the parents' they have:
Pentium 4 3GHz
1.5GB DDR ram
200gb IDE/PATA HDD - over 80% full though
and its painfully slow!
The most they would need is youtube, the odd browsing etc
currently a few tabs and the whole thing hangs for ages.
Any alternative to just buying a new PC? What's the limiting factor?
New HDD? I was even toying with the idea of the ide-to-sata SSd converters.. more for the operating system than anything else
