Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

When did you last buy a PC?

[ Edited ]
I'm interested in starting a discussion about buying new PCs. I'll get the ball rolling with a few questions:

When did you last buy a new PC?
How often do you buy a new PC?
How often do you upgrade your PC?
On average, how much do you spend?

I'll let a few people share their thoughts before I do.

Re: When did you last buy a PC?

Hi, our last but one computer was a second hand computer having a 2 GB fixed disk running at 133 Mhz! It worked perfectly but the plugs were outdated, so that I bought a small notebook with 20GB storage place - filled up surprisingly quick. Unfortunately it doesn't recognize any memory sticks anymore and can therefore be used only a a sort of a dvd player. Our last bought should hopefully help us over the next three years. It has 2 GB RAM, a graphic card enabling to play any PC games, dual core and a wide screen - which flickers already! I hope the last one is good enough to be upgraded when necessary - if I can lean how to do this.
