    I remember as a teen my parents would always think the keyboard was the actual computer and the case was the 'hard drive'. I still hear it today among the boomer generation.

    Ha yep growing up my neighbours engaged me a few times to fix their "modem", by which they meant the big beige box next to their "computer", but which they meant the monitor :lol:

    haha, back in the day I've also been asked how much for "a whole new hard drive"
    just to find out they want to upgrade the box
    I've since learnt to walk away from those opportunities to become someones 24/7 support service :)

    speaking of monitors :D

    this is my bargain find. (I think it is). Even got to test it on pickup. No post as it was 20 mins from my house.
