    I don't really like this 'Base Unit' terminology. It implies that there's more than one unit in the PC. The monitor is just a peripheral, anyone who runs servers will know that. Plus most PCs are towers these days, so calling it a base unit doesn't seem right. A friend of mine runs a homebuilt tower with the usual setup, and his old PC sits behind his desk with nothing but some crossover cable to the main PC. It's only ever managed through remote desktop (XP you see).

    Yesterday my colleague brought a photo copy of floppy and told me the story, that happened to her mother in the office. Her mother gave a floppy disk to one of her co-workers and asked her to print out it's contents. In a few minutes that lady came back with floppy and a paper, were she photocopied both sides of floppy on xerox machine. See the scans of the paper she brought:

    Not nessecarily, remember the old iMacs (I'm not sure if they make em' like this anymore) where the rest of the computer was actually built in to the back of the monitor? You had to reach to the back to put a floppy disk in or something. I'd think the monitors magnetic field would get to the parts though. So this is probably where some people at least get confused as to what the difference between the monitor and the actual "computer" is
