1 Lets remember that pawn brokers are just parasites who prey on those that are at such a low point in life that they are forced to pawn stuff to pay rent, buy food, or medical bills. So they go to a pawn shop where some guy like this Rick ( yes i have seen the TV show) tries to sc$#w them as much as possiable on how much money he " loans" them at intrest rates that would make loan sharks blush, There was no massive return for him so he said no. Yes I know that was just a TV add.
Microsoft is Microsoft evil money hungry company who don't give a dam about you the customer. They tell you what you want and need. LOL @ Windows 8........... LOL @ all Windows ( Window's = Look at me I can use a mouse)
The avarage user only wants a laptop to do email, surf the net, and chat, why do they need a 10 plus gig installed of OS for that? Why do they need A Pc that cost's $$$$$? Why do they need a quad core zillion megs of ram and video cards that in some cases cost hundread's of dollars?
Chrome books do away with all that for a good price. You don't need an aircraft carrier to cross a small stream a row boat or bridge will do.
Most of the time I use an old pendo u1000 netbook with 1 gig of ram and a 20 gig hdd and puppy linux 5.6 slacko . Its all I need, So do I own a real pc or not?
