I now during 32 years daily have been using PCs, and own 10 – 15 books concerning PCs, most concerning programming, but my last bought PC building book now is 20 years old so I had to buy a new one.I didn’t buy the book for learning how to build a PC, as I learned this back in the schools, but because I’m now on the 12th year live in Thailand, and here totally am missing in being up to date concerning the part inside the PCs, and soon will have to rebuild one of my PCs. So I’m searching knowledge for the best combination of Motherboard, Music card, RAM memory, the Ports, and so on, to use, when renewing the actual PC.When living in Denmark I weekly was meeting in a PC group, and went to the libraries for searching and reading in many of the excellent PC magazines from USA and Denmark, but here in we have no libraries, so I instead have to buy books, or try to search in Google.This book, which I received few days ago, is really excellent, by the short and easy writings which precisely are telling us all what we need to know, and a bit more. And this either if we are building, or rebuilding a PC, or if go visiting chops and there buy a new PC, maybe the first one.The book contains many good pictures, and many small details, as for example on the side 40, during the installation of the Memory Modules we are reminded that our bodies are containing electrostatic electricity, which can destroy this card, and then how to take care of this. And for example we on the side 152, concerning USC Flash Drives, learn that there are 2 different kinds, which we nearly newer is mentioned in the specifications. Newer before did I know anything about this difference which actually results in different speed, price, living time, and G bites.
