    Gotcha, but which one is your primary use... or is it spread evenly across all three? I was hesitant to provide a mix option because I think everyone would have voted that way (including myself). Thanks for your comments.

    If I can't get Productivity out of my systems, into the trash they go! Usually watching downloaded Moovies and TV shows. I refuse to watch TV, so this suits me fine. I've got every episode of Fringe from day one to the last ep, and now I can hear the surround sound which ups the quality that much more. I resurrected a deceased HP machine as my primary Media computer, I use it to mix music as well as watch videos. The heap is amazingly fast with Windows 8 in it. This machine here, I use to pay my bills and blab on this board

    I been in here more than I been on Facepuke!

    I don't Facebook, not yet anyway. Just about everybody else in the family does though. My wife would divorce me if I canceled the cable. My spare desktop is set up as a media PC. I used to use it to record TV but or set top box does that now so its used mostly to watch downloaded movies etc.

    Not much! Computer and the Web so boring lately, 'cept for trying new software, maybe.
