RIP POC PC... Say Hello to My New Friend

All I ever wanted was a decent laptop so I could work, play, read email and write stuff.  I don't think that's asking too much.  In the past 8 or so years I have been through at least 4 maybe even 5 PCs -- I've lost count.  The PC in the below pic is fortunately still under warranty but is experiencing death rattles; hence the new silver beauty above it.  And, yes, the amount of money I've sunk into computers lately certainly has to have made a positive dent in our local economy (to the detriment of my checking account) ...oh crap on a crutch.

  4. Is that an IPad? My son bought one last year and he's going to get the latest version soon so I will get his "old" IPad. I can hardly wait.

  6. Karen - thanks so far I'm enjoying it much more than the PC - we'll see how long this love affair lasts. The world knows technology and I mix about as well as oil and water. LOL ;)

  7. Susan - No it's not an iPad it's actually a MacBook Pro laptop and it's pretty nifty - an iPad is not powerful enough for what I need for work - iPads are fun but I needed much more computing power. You will have fun with the iPad especially if you like to read or watch movies/videos. I just find them cumbersome to carry around and am used to my Kindle for reading. Enjoy - and thanks for stopping by! xoxo

  8. Hey Delaney!! My other PC is still under warranty however it is a piece of crap. I keep taking it up for work and yet the "company" doesn't think the work being done warrants a new computer. Plus much of the time they can't "duplicate" the problem, (bugger-pickin' morons). So it has another year of warranty and the hubs will take it up and have it worked on periodically and he will use it until it completely dies & is replaced or goes out of warranty and then he can buy what he wants. I'm DONE with PCs. DONE. I love this Mac.

  9. I am so glad that you love your MAC. If I ever get a new laptop it is going to be an iPad or a MAC. I am so sick of viruses. I finally for the moment can write comments again. Still can't figure out what was wrong. I keep running virus checks constantly. I think I am now virus paranoid. MAC's are not supposed to get them very often and my sister who just got a Droid phone said she now wishes she had gotten an iPhone because she heard on the news the other day that a lot of the Droid Apps carry viruses.

    Dang virus blood suckers need to go rot in a prison that throws the keys down a deep, deep well.

    Anyway I hope you are doing well.

    God bless.

  10. I do love my MAC - and the funny thing is now that I've given my old PC to Devoted Spouse suddenly it works fine!! So, it IS me!! I'm the electronic jinx in the household -- electronics mysteriously break down around me. Ack. LOL xoxo P.S. I have a Droid phone and I have an antivirus app on it that checks every app - I also have an antivirus especially made for MAC on my new laptop - one can never be too secure! xo

  12. I see the last one is an ASUS which is what I am using as I type. When I bought it last year I was on the fence about a MAC but decided I didn't want to spend the money. I feel confident the next one will be a MAC. Good luck!
