Wow! You want physical books to read? Visit any library. Just kidding, but in this era of electronic gadgets (e-readers, iPad, etc.) and the availability of on-line content, most of it free, I don’t see a reason for buying a book on computer hardware, but if you must, the library is your friend. :slight_smile:

Just my two cents.

Books are static…tech moves very quickly in computers, so I think a better option would be to read the sites that deal with technical problems.

Anandtech.com is a good introduction to this sort of thing. Others to look at include Arstechnica, The TechReport, Xbitlabs, and SilentPC Review.

Books still have their usefullness and plus you can buy and have a archive so you can review tips and see how it is done when you don’t have a computer around to read. One shouldn’t limit one research to just the electronic sources books contain a wealth of knowledge you just have to know how to go about finding and looking for it. I myself use both Books and web rather them limit myself to one resource.
