  • Thanks. Luckily when I bought my mac I also got an apple tv for the purpose of using it as an external monitor for my mac. I currently have it hooked up via HDMI cable to an HD tv. When I need to work with HD graphics I'll make sure to use TV as ext…
  • Thanks. You're right and for simple stuff such as word processing and web browsing my computer ( which I'll probably be doing a lot of as a liberal arts major ) should last several years. As for gaming my computer should probably last as you said 3-…
  • Thank you for your replies. I suppose I won't get a job in computers, but though I really hate to wait, I'll talk to a couple of people next week first before I decide on anything definite on a career. 
  • I agree it's the hardware not the name brand that usually counts. I am seriously thinking now that what I have is fine for now and I'm getting way too ahead of myself with thinking about building a high end desktop computer. 
  • Thanks for all the replies. Since I don't plan on building my own computer for at least a few years and technology changes so fast I'm probably getting way too ahead of myself as usual. I have a habit of sometimes getting too ahead of myself especia…
  • I know a simple computer will do for now since I'm just beginning but I have plans to get serious into programming so eventually I am going to need a high end gaming desktop computer. It will probably be a few years until I really need a high end co…
  • Okay this is a good start and very interesting read. 
  • Thank you. I would say that I am very serious about this as I seem to be very passionate about computers and I enjoy messing with computers and it usually makes me feel better working with computers as working with computers seems to distract my min…
  • Originally posted by spizz Kids should go out for fresh air and not sitting in front of a screen. True kids should be able to go outside and explore and learn from nature. And it can be fun for both kids and adults to spend some time outdoors. But…
  • Originally posted by Sho0terMcgavin Originally posted by strawhat0981 WoW or Wizard 101, easy answer. WoW is a terrible choice for a kid. Not because of the content of the game, but simply look at trade or general chat in any major city.  Kids…
  • Originally posted by yangdude Pay a few bucks for MINECRAFT (make sure your computer will play it).  My 5 year old creates amazing things on it. I really would prefer something free, but I doubt there are that many free games out there. My parents…
  • Originally posted by Karaethon Hearthstone might be good too.  It can get a little complicated with deck building, but it is a card game and the opponent can't chat.  There are so many A holes on the internet the lack of chat might be a good thing,…
  • I've checked wizard 101 and it looks interesting, but my nephew isn't into fantasy stuff like I am. I thought about maybe pirate 101 but he doesn't seem to be into pirates either. Also I'm not sure how educational the game is though I've read the ga…
  • Originally posted by Loktofeit Doh! I completely missed the educational requirement.   Definitely check out JumpStart, especially the JumpStart Moms section. I have thought of maybe JumpStart too.
  • I have heard of Wizard 101 and Pirate 101 on TV. I want to think they are free to join but free membership is probably limited. I don't think the game has much if any educational material to it, but I'll be sure to check it out.
  • Originally posted by Jean-Luc_Picard If you don't like medieval times, just go for TSW or SW:TOR. Both aren't the best MMORPGs ever but are very good games if you don't want the "sword and sorcery" genre. If you are into "Kung Fu" stuff, you can t…
  • I'm looking for a game that is free and I have been talking to someone about my worries and they say I need to take a break from my worries. I forgot to mention that I would like a game where you can costomise your character as often as you like. By…
