I am looking for a computer that is 'radio friendly'.  Right now, I can't have a computer in my shack.  The minute I turn on the computer, I might as well turn off the radio as there is so much noise and static interjected into the radio that it drowns out the radio with the noise.  I have tried multiple computers from HP to Dell and all seem to have the same issues.  The issue seems to be power supply and hard drive motors - you can hear the 'build' up in the noise as the power supply comes on line and as the computer goes through its boot cylce.  PC is plugged in on a different power line from the radio.  Any suggestions for RF friendly PCs?  73
