Recently, our old desktop finally bit the dust-totally. So for the last several weeks I have been using hubby's which is fine unless we both want to be on it at the same time. We were talking about getting another desktop but I hate all the cords and mess around the tower etc. so I finally talked hubby into another laptop. I did some research(yes, I'm one of those-lol)and then we went to our local Be*st Bu* store to check them out. Our clerk wasn't as helpful as I had hoped and I came away a bit confused about which brand to buy. At first we were focused on Dell and Lenovo; it also became really clear that this was not going to be as inexpensive as I first thought. Laptops don't come with programs already on them like our old Gateway did, you have to buy them separately-bummer. Since reviewing all the laptops, I think Toshiba and Asus are coming up as the ones that might meet our needs. But then we do need a new WIFI modem and Works program so this is not going to be a really cheap shopping trip. How about you-do you use a desktop or laptop? I'm excited about the possibility of having another laptop, I can move it around with me and take it on trips. So what is your favorite brand? What would you do without on your current computer and what do you wish you had gotten?
I hope our weather stays nice today and I hope the cough I've had will just disappear-I'm ready for spring weather, spring energy, flowers and flipflops.
Big hugs to you today. Noreen
