Ibali leKhompyutha leBarebones elenzelwe wena…

Iikhompyuter ezi-4 zokugqibela endizithengileyo ekhaya ndizakhele ngokwam. Ukuba ukhe wafuna ukugcina imali kwinkqubo, funda kancinci malunga neekhompyuter kwaye ufumane amandla amakhulu kwibhokhwe yakho… cofa ikhonkco le-barebones kuyo nayiphi na ivenkile yekhompyuter enkulu. Ndikunye nonyana wam esiya IUPUI (ngokuhlwanje), bendifuna ukumothusa ngenkqubo enkulu!

Iimpawu zeGladiatorNdinemali kwiakhawunti yam ye-PayPal, ke ndaye ndagqiba kwelokuba ndikhangele ivenkile yekhompyuter esebenzisa iPayPal njengendlela yokubhatala. Mhlawumbi ethandwa kakhulu ngu TigerDirect, yokugcina enkulu kwi-Intanethi izinto ze-elektroniki, iikhompyuter kunye neenxalenye. Ndikhethe inkqubo ye-barebones ebizwa ngokuba yi "IGladiator", Ityala elinestayile elingafuneki kwizixhobo (zonke iidrive kunye nezinto ezityibilikayo kunye nokusetyenziswa kwesibiyeli esikhethekileyo.

Namhlanje, unyana wam ufumene izinto zokugqibela ezivela kwi-UPS kwaye waqala ukubeka irhamncwa kunye. Izinto zitshintshile okoko ndagqibela ukuthenga inkqubo ye-barebones, nangona! Ngaphambi kokuba ndiqalise, ndandifumana ii-imeyile zeTigerDirect ezichaza ukuba kufuneka ndicofe ikhonkco ukuhlawula i-invoyisi yam. Ingxaki? Imali sele ikhutshiwe kwiakhawunti yam!

Nditsalele umnxeba inombolo yokuxhasa kwaye ndiqinisekile ukuba ukuthengwa bekubanjiwe de ndafowuna. Khawufan 'ucinge! BAThathe imali yam kodwa bafuna isiqinisekiso ngaphambi kokuba BAThumele izinto zabo. Kuhle huh? Ndikhalaze kubo ukuba bekufanele ukuba bayichazile into eza kwenzeka kwi-imeyile. Oh Kulungile.

Ndikhumbula xa wawuthenga inkqubo ye-barebones, unokuphosa nje ezinye iindawo kule nkqubo-zihlala ziyi-hard drive kunye ne-DVD-RW, kwaye ukulungele ukuhamba. Le khithi ye-barebones ize ne-hard drive, nangona… uhlobo lwe.

Ukuba uya kwiphepha lemveliso, uya kuqaphela izinto ezimbini ezingaqhelekanga ukuba umntu ophakathi (njengam) angaphoswa:

  1. Akukho umqhubi iprosesa! Esi sisinyanzelo esipheleleyo sayo nayiphi na iprosesa yanamhlanje kwaye akukho sizathu sokuba mayishiywe ngaphandle kwekiti ye-barebones.
  2. Uyayikhumbula i-hard drive? Banikezela nge-hard drive ye-200Gb Maxtor EIDE. Kuvakala kulungile, huh? Mhlawumbi… ngaphandle kokuba inkqubo ilungiselelwe i-serial ATA (SATA)! Ngezinto ezongezelelekileyo zonyana wam, akanayo naphi na ukuze afake i-hard drive.

Ke unyana wam waya ekholejini namhlanje ngaphandle kwekhompyuter. Ihleli iziqwenga ezininzi phezu kwetafile yasekhitshini… ayinamsebenzi nakubani na. Ukufika. Amaxwebhu ade afunxe. Ndikhumbula xa wawufumana incwadi ngebhodi yomama, ngoku ndineposta engenazinkcukacha. Kwakudanisa oku. Ewe akukho kubuya kwiHard Drive, nokuba kunjalo. Ugh. Mhlawumbi ndiza kuyinika kwindawo leyo ukuba andifumani kuyisebenzisela kwenye indawo.

Oobhontsi kuphela endinabo TigerDirect bekukuhanjiswa okukhawulezayo kwamalungu. Ukusuka kwintlawulo (ukukhululwa) ukuya kumnyango wangaphambili, ziintsuku ezi-2 kuphela zeshishini ezidlulileyo. Hayi kakhulu. Ngethemba lokuba iinxalenye ezimbalwa ezizayo ziza apha ngoMgqibelo! ityala uzobuya ngeCawe- ngethemba lokuba ndingayifumana inkqubo yakhe!

    UDoug,

    Indoda yobukrelekrele bakho kwaye ngokubanzi iyazi ukuba kufanele ukuba uyisebenzisa kanjani iMac! IMacBook entle inokwenza umatshini omkhulu wokususa!

    Iminqweno emihle evela eNgilani enelanga (kube kanye!)
