Over the past week my laptop has been slowly dying, poor thing. Anyway I went back to our computer shop up at Charlestown (where we bought our PC) on Friday and left my old one with them and they transferred everything over onto my new Hewlett Packard laptop. It has an added extra of the keyboard lighting up, so I don't need to have a light on at night time, which is great news for Trevor as he doesn't like the light on whilst watching the Television. It also has the numeric pad on the right hand side of the keyboard, so it's a bit bigger than my previous HP laptop. I'm just so happy to have a computer that works as soon as it's turned on. Love Chris

That sounds really cool Shirley. Glad you have got a new one too. Love Chris

Enjoy your new toy. I desperately need to start looking for a new one for Klaus. He still has XP. He only uses his aged laptop for email and solitaire.

I hope you find one Sarah. It's always a good idea to get them from a reputable computer company. I'm so lucky mine is only a 10 minute drive away. Love Chris

I am also looking second hand. Klaus uses it so little but is always calling me to sort something out.

Oh, the joy and stress of a new computer. I too will need a new one soon it is 10 years old. All pictures and embroidery designs are backed up on thumb drives regularly but I know when that crash happens some of it will be lost. Enjoy your new computer!!

You've done well to have it last for 10 years Pam. They don't seem to make them last these days. Love Chris

Great! My SNL keeps me up and running but always asks" what have you done now" since he is in the fields most of the time now tending to all his crops , I have to wait 'till he has time for me.

That seems to be the norm these days Miss Lillian. People are so busy. I hope he can check yours out sooner rather than later and it's good to have someone who can help you out so readily. Love Chris

Isn't it wonderful having a new computer that works great! My hubby will tell you (or anyone listening!) that I am hard on computers! He is right by the way. I take good care of them and am careful with them - but, I download designs and it is possible to pick up a virus that way
In the process of setting a new computer up - adding programs, redoing passwords, etc, it takes time and is a major hassle. But, in the end, you have a wonderful machine that works like a dream (for a few years)! Hugs to you - stay safe and enjoy your new PC! Laura

Thanks Laura, yes it's so nice having it turn on and go!!!!! It was taking ages. We are well and keeping to our area. I have been in to see Amy and the girls a couple of times. Next week I'm back to full time babysitting Dana's children after school. I just pick Aqualina up and go to Dana's home and wait with the 3 of them till Dana gets home. Love Chris

Thanks Suzanne, I'm getting used to the wider keyboard and the lighted part quicker than I expected. Love Chris

by 02kar Moderator 17 Jun 2020

Ohhh, love the idea of a lighted keyboard! Enjoy playing with your new toy. Thank goodness you had no trouble getting everything transferred onto this one so you are up and running with barely a delay.

Hi Karen, yes it's great being able to see it. I'm a touch typist by trade so it didn't much matter, but it does help in the evenings! And yes, having everything transferred over was fantastic. Love Chris

by graceandham 17 Jun 2020

And now for the learning curve! Since you aren't changing brands, hopefully it will be easy. Congrats on your new "notion".

Hi Betsey, that's for sure. Most of our electronic stuff is Hewlett Packard in the home, except for Trev's computers - they are bought through TAFE (Technical and Further Education) as he is an Adult Education Teacher. Love Chris

So glad you are up and running smoothly...and that you were able to have your new laptop set up for you...

Hi Caroline, I am afraid they are a necessity these days. So many choices too! Love Chris
