Hello,Having lately become disabled and unable to work Iwas looking for a hobby to spend my time with. I was a carpenter for 30 yrs and before that I repaired radars in the US Army The army sent me to electonix school but that was was back in the days of tubes!my first project I would like to start is a computer to replace my wifes dell which is so noisy you can hear it running two rooms away.She use mainly for the internet word processing(trying to write a book)and downloading movies from netflix.the only game she ussaully plays is scrabblewhich is enuff to make the dellwhir like its coming off the desk.I'm thinking maybe the intel I5 w/o a video card may be enuff for her but am very interested in what builds people with more experiance than me would reccomend thanx
