Happy Monday..
dreary..drab..overcast..

 http://www.artselector.com/users/juliaeverettmirrors my mood..
still trying to come to grips..
after the demise of  my 6+ year old,
much used and well loved computer..

I NEED a NEW one..!

went online last nite to Dell.com..
finally figured out exactly what I NEED..
all the bells and whistles..
a middle of the road variety..
necessary for my particular usage..
after plugging in all the info..
$569.00 sounded reasonable..
or so I thought..
but then when it came to ordering..
reading the fine print..
no monitor..
no new keyboard..
just the TOWER..

basics installed..
actual programs to be downloaded from internet..
no recovery cd's..
(use backup on your computer!)
no "media"..
(whatever that means!)
various ones could be ordered..
upgraded ..
at about $200 each!!
so.. what would I be getting for the $569.00 ?
supposedly..
a faster operating system with mega memory!!!???
have not a clue..whatsoever!!
what's a girl to do?

gotta have something here..
hubs is taking the laptop with him..

 gonna call and talk to Dell in a few..
in the meantime..
another cup of caffeine..

my final and LAST cup of the day!
hopefully jolting!!
and eye-opening!!
see what's happening over at my friends places..
Blue Monday at Sally's

Mellow Yellow Monday with ??

  3. I know they cost more, but try a Mac computer. They last and last.

    Happy Blue Monday, Loui.

  5. Is there a reason you prefer a new desktop to a new laptop? I just had this conversation with my husband and I told him when this desktop bites the dust, I think I'll just get a new laptop to replace it. I can plug the laptop into the printer if need be. You might want to think about it. Good luck.

  7. Go to the Apple store in Denver and ask them to show you what they have and ask advice. You will find the greatest customer support you've ever had! Spend some time with them and get yourself an iMac....you will never regret it nor will you ever want to be anywhere near a Windows machine again.
    iMac is my next computer as my old XP is dying due to being no memory left.
    I bought a book last year from Amazon about How to Move from Windows to Mac.
    Oh how good! I am doing it! By the way, there is a version of Picasa for Mac.
    Spend the money and it will be so very worth it for your photos and blogging.

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
