"...I hope to help you find some hardware guidance. This installment lists a few of my favorite computer hardware resources. Some are news sites, some are on-line help guides, and some are books (book: portable computers with great battery life, no upgrade capability, and lousy refresh rates)."

"First, you might need to learn the basics of the personal computer. Newbies should start with titles like Peter Norton's Inside The PC and How Computers Work. ... Scott Muller's classic series of upgrade & repair books has been updated for LINUX with the help of the folks at the Linux General Store in Atlanta (The eigth edition of the "standard" edition is also available on-line)."

This includes (but is not limited to) Tom's Hardware Guide, HardwareCentral, Sharky Extreme, and Ars Technica. ... Again, most of these sites are focused on Microsoft Windows.
