OK - this is for PERSONAL use builds of course - and you can include those you build for others to use but maybe not the cases where you upgrade just a processor (after all that is hardly a new system!).

personally I average two a year, one bwing for me and another maybe for someone who wants a freebie from assorted finds and leftovers as I build etc etc.

I built two new computers in 2006, but now that I am happy with the second one so I am just going to continue upgrading it.

I either get requested to build lots, or none, this year I only built one, and bought a pre-built (mac) :)

personally, never had a desktop and it's surely not cost effective to build a laptop

If you count machines I build for others, usually 5-10 depending on how busy I am per year if not more. I refer most people to Dell these days for basic home use, but I custom build anything that has reasonable needs.

Only when I feel the urge. Probably once every 2-3 years.

Usually about 2 per year unless I have family or friends that want a new machine.

mainframeGuy...where is my marmite? Hmmmm???
Wow! I'm impressed you remember - now then - I'll need to search over about five computers for your address.... which (I am guessing) may have changed.... Know I have moved abotu three times since then - if you care to PM me again maybe I'll see what is possible for Christmas.....

The good news is you can now buy it in plastic (squeezable) containers suitable for shipping.... So maybe it was worth the wait?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
