  3. OMG, half of my customers think the monitor is a computer! I sell them a newer monitor and they think they will loose all their files! And that it will run faster! They are perfectly willing to pay $200 for a refurbished monitor but only want to give you $35 for the computer that goes with it! They ask what speed the monitor connects to the internet at!

  5. well ok, they are "civilians" hehe. it's a whole other thing when you talk to a autocad designer and find out he doesn't know that there is a hdd in his computer. i don't know where he thought his files went..... good thing there's engineers to eek out all the details.

    CPU is like sex, the faster the better! :wink:
  7. most of mine call the base unit "the hard drive" i've had the question "what kind of mouse do i need for this hard drive?" many a time.

    Although it has a lot of good ideas, beer doesn't know anything about computers!!!
  8. This summer while working at my highschool on the computers and network, I saw my previous tech teacher teaching teh teachers about computers. She held up a monitor and said "This thingy here shows everything..." A few of my friends who know nothing about computers asked me how much faster my internet was when I told them I got a new LCd (back then when I tried teh horrible VP150m.)

    When I rule the world, Apple will only mean the fruit.
  9. I get a lot of that. More experienced people call it a CPU, which I don't find anoying because it contains the CPU and because the entire computer acts as a fuctioning unit. Computer guys call it a "computer" or a "box" when talking down to the uninitiated.

  10. Maybe he was used to working with dumb terminals hooked to a mainframe.

  11. Yeah, last summer I took a beginners class, and when I pointed to the "box" and asked them what it was I got computer, CPU, hard drive and case (smart ass) among the replies.

  12. that's what i thought too, but then i saw his box in the cabinet, and he said he lived and died by his zip drive :/ there was a lady in one of those classes, she's holding her mouse in mid air moving it around and couldn't figure out why the "little arrow" wouldn't move on the screen.
