Nope, I don't have any desire to have a touch screen computer or phone or anything else.

I also like the physical and auditory feedback of buttons, it makes it easier for me to type or whatever else. That way I know for a fact that I have hit the button I intended to. That and if my screen gets a crack on it, I can still fully use my computer no problem, but if it was a touchscreen I wouldn't be able to touch that area and have it register properly.

Re: Found my dream computer

Yes, a stylus makes touch screens much better. Sometimes I'll use my brother's Ipod touch for some reason, and it won't accept input from a stylus. It is really frustrating, I don't have a desire to put my dirty fingerprints all over a screen, my mom broke me of that desire long ago. I was always told to keep my fingerprints off of anything glass and any kind of screen, so why would I start now?

Re: Found my dream computer

Touch Screen and LightScribe are both gimmicks that you will not use after the first week. Do you really need a TV Card? Do you need bluetooth wireless? Do you need a laptop instead of a desktop?

Re: Found my dream computer

No, no and no.
My basic desktop is more than sufficient. I don't need or want bluetooth or whatever. A laptop would be nice, but I like my desktop well enough.

Touch Screen would be for CT for HRing, and maybe games here that require a mouse. About the TV card, yes, in fact I'm going to be running directv through the computer. Bluetooth is calling correct? Dunno, maybe. Actually I want a desktop more than a laptop. I want to incorporate the use of both laptop and desktop into one. Laptop mostly for when I don't want on the big comp, or need a high powered device. Basically I am condensing everything in my room into one thing.

Re: Found my dream computer

Dude, for the price of this touch screen thingy? Why don't you just but a heavy duty desktop PC. You could build a beast of a computer for that price that will last you a long time if you maintain it. What's the appeal of this one to you?

Re: Found my dream computer

What is hring? A regular mouse will be faster and more efficient than a touch screen. You can also get a high quality precision mouse.

I recently built a PC for someone else. Here is what I bought.

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom X3 8250e Toliman 1.9GHz 3 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 65W Triple-Core Processor HD8250ODJ3BGH - Processors - Desktops
Processor - AMD Phenom X3 8250e 1.9GHz 65W Triple-Core Processor. Very energy efficient and performs very well. 64 Bit. $47

Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
Hard Drive - Green 1TB 5400 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s. Very energy efficient and fast 1,000GB. $70

Newegg.com - ASUS Black 4X BD-ROM 8X DVD-ROM 32X CD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Drive Model BR-04B2T - Blu-Ray Drives
Blu-Ray/DVD combo drive. $45

Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX T1 Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2T1K2/4G
4GB of SDRAM DDR2 1066 RAM with heat spreaders. $91

Newegg.com - JetWay JPA78VM5-H-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 780V HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
$50 I choose the motherboard because it had HDMI out which I needed for this project - you probably don't need that so it might not be the best choice for you. It has a ATI Radeon 3100 onboard video card which is very good. It gets a 4+ on Windows graphics test and a 5+ on its 3D test.

Newegg.com - LOGISYS Computer PS350MA 350W Micro ATX Power Supply
Newegg.com - Rosewill RCX-Z80-AL 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
The fans are all extra quiet yet powerful enough. $19 + 10

Newegg.com - APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
Small compact case with handle and front inputs and fan. $25

That is everything you need except monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers all of which can be bought at a thrift store for under $15.

Total price $356 + $35 for shipping + monitor and keyboard, mouse and speakers. You could also easily save $35 by getting a case out of the trash or thrift store and another $25 by getting a power supply the same way - there are tons of them floating around and they are all basically the same.

Point is, you can get a computer that will do everything you need to do (unless you are trying to cure cancer or search for life on other planets) for under $400.

Newegg.com - Kingston HyperX T1 Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model KHX8500D2T1K2/4G
4GB of SDRAM DDR2 1066 RAM with heat spreaders. $91

Newegg.com - JetWay JPA78VM5-H-LF AM2+/AM2 AMD 780V HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
$50 I choose the motherboard because it had HDMI out which I needed for this project - you probably don't need that so it might not be the best choice for you. It has a ATI Radeon 3100 onboard video card which is very good. It gets a 4+ on Windows graphics test and a 5+ on its 3D test.

Newegg.com - LOGISYS Computer PS350MA 350W Micro ATX Power Supply
Newegg.com - Rosewill RCX-Z80-AL 80mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
The fans are all extra quiet yet powerful enough. $19 + 10

Newegg.com - APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
Small compact case with handle and front inputs and fan. $25

That is everything you need except monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers all of which can be bought at a thrift store for under $15.

Total price $356 + $35 for shipping + monitor and keyboard, mouse and speakers. You could also easily save $35 by getting a case out of the trash or thrift store and another $25 by getting a power supply the same way - there are tons of them floating around and they are all basically the same.

Point is, you can get a computer that will do everything you need to do (unless you are trying to cure cancer or search for life on other planets) for under $400.

Wow thats cool.

Also, I would want to have one after Suicone expires ( he is deffinetly a future HR.)

This the guy who wanted to watch NFL on his computer? I'm not too crazy in going that much into it, but after thought the Touchscreen does seem pointless. what is a high precision mouse btw? Maybe it would be best to post what I am looking for.

1TB+ harddrive

4GB+ RAM would like 8GB

best processor I can find

ability to use directv on my computer, same with Wii/PS3.

Able to buy PC games like SF4 and play on computer

Able to burn/copy DVD's

Able to watch anime and convert to DVD's on computer

Able to run every single RU game for the next 10+ years. (I have an example of a game that gives even my Mom's comp trouble)

Able to multitask. Play a game like SF4, msn, while on FF and chatting in RU for example.

Biggest thing: I do not want to build it and would like to pick it up somewhere. Think my work gets a discount on HP.com.

Why do you not want to build it? Just because you don't want to have to deal with it?

And does that mean you don't want to order it off the internet?

Regardless, you can do all of those things and more for a computer that's half the price of that touch screen thingy. Just shop around.

Search for high precision mouse or gaming mouse or laser mouse.

Quote:
1TB+ harddrive

4GB+ RAM
My post above included that.

Quote:

Add an extra $90 to my post above. Must have 64bit OS to use over 4GB.

Quote:
best processor I can find
You can not judge a processor by the price tag, the release date or the specs written on the package. You can only judge it by real world performance tests. Look up the processor here - PassMark - CPU Benchmarks - List of Benchmarked CPUs
If you look up the processor I posted above, 8250e, you will see it is ranked as 310 fastest processor. #311 uses 3 times as much electricity and costs 4 times as much money and is slightly slower.
That is a very useful link.

Quote:
ability to use directv on my computer
Add $50-100 to my price above for a TV Tuner.
DirectTV encrypts the channels. That means you must change the channel on the DirectTV box. Your computer can not change the channel. That means you can not have your computer schedule recordings on different channels. Unless you get a cablecard for your PC which will add about a grand to the price.

Computer I posted above would have no problem with this.

I still recommend building your own, it is easy, but if you want something prebuilt from HP then here is a better deal HP Pavilion Elite HPE-300z series | HP Official Store

Re: Found my dream computer

I bought my computer from ibuypower.com, and you pick your parts then they build it and send it. I highly recommend it. The price was right, I have a good warranty and my computer is a powerhouse.

Re: Found my dream computer

@Kong when I click your HP link I get sent to home, did you mean this: HP Pavilion Elite HPE-400z series | HP Official Store

That link is very useful, building my own computer is something I know I would screw up.

I'm not handy at all.

@TMT: I'll look at that thanks.

Re: Found my dream computer

No, the one I posted is no longer on their site. It was $599. I think the one you posted is the same except it has a "free upgrade from a 500GB hard drive to 750GB". Funny that free upgrade costs $30.
