My U.S. Packard Bell desktop which I got back when Windows 98 came out\nfinally came to an end!! The thing served me well over the years. It\ncould not run many of the fancy newer programs or Windows XP but it\ndid what I needed and wanted from it. I ran it as it came out of the\nbox except for removing a lot of the junk and installing my programs.\nI started on computers when DOS was the thing and progressed with each\nnew OS but Vista (BOO-\-). Got my PB when 98 came out cause my old DOS\nunit could not handle 98. So my XP is only the 3rd box I have had.\n\nIt never had to be taken in for repairs or fixed in any way. If it\nwas not for the on / off switch going after all these years I would\nstill be running it. I tryed to locate a new on / off switch to no\navail.\n\nI do have to admit that the one thing it did not have that I missed\nwas a card slot for my digital camera so I just took the camera to the\nlocal store and had the photos put on a CD so that was no big problem.\n\nThe PB is setting in the corner now and I have a new box that I found\nwith XP on it. Taking a little getting used to this OS!! UGH.\n\nThanks for listening.
