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.

thanks for the reply i will look at the sites as for ipads and stuff like that i have a computer and a ipod thats it

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.

Here you go.
