I have an old Dell. At first my family didn't have a computer until they knocked down the old high school. Then my brother went up to them and asked for a computer so we got ours for free. Pretty sweet.

You don't need to upgrade a computer. Mine is good now that I have cable.

umm lol you can get into a discussion abou hating Macs with me, that's fine, but get some better info. I have a 5 button, Razer boomslang with a scroll wheel for my mouse.

I don't know what you consider pretty, but this looks a lot nicer than most of the beige PC's out there.

http://www.apple.com/powermac/

Mac OS X is supieror to Windows in every way, I have had it for 2 years now and it has never crashed. No, I'm no lying 2 years not one crash.

If you hate Macs that cool, but ummm your reason's aren't valid. Even to start off, a computer being ugly does not make it a bad machine, or make it worthy of your hate.

First, I'll try to make you look less stupid and naive then you sound.

1) They aren't really "ugly" but to each his own.
2) OMG! NO RIGHT CLICK! HOW WILL I SURVIVE? Oh wait, you just hold down the "control" button when clicking...
3) Use the damn arrows then.
4) What the hell is so special about windows? I'll never get it. I had windows for years and I always hated that piece of crap. It is the most unstable thing I have ever had to displeasure to use, and I hope it burns in hell. You people are all brain-washed. My Unix-based OS X mac is more stable then that hunk of crap XP ever was. The only downside of a mac is no games, but really, that's what a ps2/gamecube/xbox/etc is for.

Learn to have atleast a half-solid argument before making fun of something.

and umm on the games well, that's not completely true. Lets see Elite Force 2 was just announced for Mac, Halo is coming out for Mac the same time as PC and many other games are on there way. I have tons of games for my Mac some of them inclue Unreal Tournament, Elite Force, Medal of Honor, Return to Castle Wolfenstien, No one Lives Forver, Soldier of Fortune 2, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, The Sims,Warcraft 3, Jedi Knight 2 and I could go on. There are more than enough games.

Sorry dude, half-life is probably the one good game Mac is missing.

Although there's a big difference between dual 2.8 and 5ghz. Since most applications don't support dual procs, then most of the time you are running at 2.8ghz. Still a nice amount of Mhz, but Mhz aren't everything :-).
