    Slowest Work Mac Pro Ever

    My work desktop is a 2007 2,6ghz dual core mac pro with a whopping 1gb, its the mother of all bottlenecks. I also know mac pros are kinda loud, but this one is louder than my bikes engine. The sidepanel fell out on my leg once, right on the bone with that edge, like it aimed...

    My Work Computer

    It takes forever to load up, it drives me crazy! I am here, I am at work, but I cannot start doing anything because the dang laptop wants to take it's sweet time to load. Stupid old piece of junk! On an unrelated note, it needed a new power supply so I took it to Fry's, and they...

    I HATE slow computers. My computer can be sooo slow sometimes. I really think it's time for a new one. I rarely ever use the computer now.. I use the laptop because that computer annoys me. It's like you press on one button and it takes sooo long to load. Like 10 minutes or more...

    They Suck.

    Slow computers suck so bad.  I think slow compuers **** me off almost more than anything else in this entire world. (Okay, maybe not that bad)  But, super close anyways.

    So Aggravating

    Few things annoy me so much as a slow computer, especially given how cheap hardware has gotten, and, failing that, how easy Linux is to use these days. To me, there is little excuse to have a truly slow computer. Every time that, for some unfortunate reason, I find myself using...

    I Don't Have the Time

    I don't like it when my computer slows down.  I don't have the patience for it.  If we are in an area with a low signal for our wireless Internet I don't bother.  I pick up a good book or I have my Nintendo DS to play with.  Hubby will fight...

    Super Pain In the Backside

    I can't stand when I have to wait for my computer to either warm up or switch pages. Any computer that is slow is pointless to me and I get frustrated and just hit the off button! GGRR!

    They waste my time! My time is also valuable

    but these computers can simply not handle social media and too many windows at once, even though they are PCs and were designed to!

    Gaaaah! In films nobody ever runs out mobile

    signal or their pc crashes just when they discover the evil plot! The more we rely on tech the more it can let us down! Next big thing they discover should be a smartphone battery that lasts longer the 6 minutes.

    I Hate Slow Computers

    You wouldn't believe how many computers I have kicked because they don't move fast enough for me, or they're too slow to keep up with me.   Just look for the army ones with bootmarks down the sides....   Grrr...evil ulls boxes.

    Slow Computers......

    Its not the computer that is slow. It is the memory that Windows Vista consumes and the lack of broadband in my area. We cannot even get a cellphone signal here in "Patton Holler".

    Just Bought A New Computer

    My Dell notebook computer was stolen a year ago. I bought two 2nd hand ones before getting a Toshiba notebook for a fair price. I like the feel of the Toshiba but it is not very fast and has crashed a number of times. I'm running a 150MB excel spreadsheet to carry my project data...

    I don't think that Microsoft listens.

    I tried to send an e-mail to them. That is very difficult. But I did send one. And there is no acknowledgement. I bought Excel 365 and it crashed. Yes I must have overloaded it but there is no warning on packaging or while using it to say 'Hang on you may be likely to crash' It...
