If you have JAWS 5.1 basic, then don't get XP Pro.

Hi there,
It depends on what you want to do with this new computer. The following is just my general recommendations:
* I recommend that you get at least a desktop with the following:
* CPU: at least Intel Core II Duo at 1.66 GHz.
* Memory, at least 512 MB RAM (1 GB is recommended).
* Hard drive: at least 80 GB hard drive (120 GB is recommended).
* You can use either XP or Vista. For XP, I recommend XP Pro. For Vista, I recommend Vista Business. For laptops, I recommend that you get a mid-range laptop (between $600 to $800) made from Toshiba, Sony, HP and others.
Since you have JAWS 5.1, a best choice for you might be the following:
* CPU: Intel Core II Duo
* Windows XP Professional (JAWS 8.0.1163 and higher should be used with Vista)
* 80 GB hard drive
* 512 MB of RAM.
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: new computer help

Hi. I am in need for a new computer quite soon because I am
running
an old one and running out of space.
I am wondering what people recommend to get these days.
I cannot afford to upgrade JAWS as well and am running 5.1.
Is vista okay?
What type of memory should I consider?
How big of a hard drive?
Any other thoughts?
Thanks so much.

Lovette
