so when they ask I don't have to stress my memory trying to remember how to do something on XP  :LOL:

Yeah been there too, it's awful  ;D

Freddy, build your Mum a nice little cube PC for mothers day  ;)


I was looking at those cube PCs - just not sure how powerful they are, seems a bit of a mine field figuring them out.  :scratch-head:


My Win10 folder (upgraded from Win7) is at 29GB.

Ok, so 120GB was a bit of an overstatement. Anyone remember how big the Windows folder was with win 7? XP? How about Windows 95? :P

Does Moore's Law apply to Windows folder size, as well? :D

I have to build a little PC for someone, when I get the time, laid out this Skylake cube PC with SSD and 8 GIG dual channel RAM. This was only meant as a rough guide.

Total for components = £256

No graphics card, sound card or CD ROM required.

Would need to put a win 10 ISO on a USB flash drive and buy a windows key code on top of this but the components come in at a pretty good price I thought.

Cube case £21

Power supply £14

Mobo  £50

CPU £54

RAM £65

SSD £52
