Description

I was tired of having to 'fix' my Grandma's Gateway computer. By fix, I mean remove every single adware she ever clicked on.

Just wanted something simple with quality parts. The PSU is the only component I really skimped on quality. I regret it now, because the damn thing is loud as hell. Oh, and why does my Grandma need 1.5 TB?!?! She downloads every episode of NCIS from iTunes. She can't get enough of old Navy dudes and goth chicks I guess. Oh and the wireless adapter hasn't' arrived yet.

More pics on the way. It's not a real build unless you got pics on PCpartPicker amirite?!

Ugh my camera is broken, and I'm stuck with my crappy phone camera.

I have a feeling the people who are subject to downloading everything that comes up in their faces and downloading viruses/adware is 99.99% old senior citizens, and 00.01% normal users. Probably because computers are so new to them and they think there is nothing dangerous out there, and then go, "My computer is so slow!"

I wonder why.

You need to enroll her in classes for that, preferably Proper Computing 101.

(Proper Computing 101 is not actually a real thing, but maybe you can teach her.)
