New Toy! Oh, Boy!

I ordered a new laptop computer for myself with the assistance of my brother-in-law/computer consultant.
He likes (and uses himself, although one far, far more advnaced and 'tricked out' than I would ever need or want): DELL.  Dude!
My son also has a Dell Inspiron--bigger screen--and really likes it.
I am in the learning curve.  Since my technological skills are still in the stone age, it is a very steep learning curve.
The sound is on.  That was my motivation to get my own computer.  Mike, being quite hard of hearing, always turns off the sound.  This has driven me crazy for far too long.  So, for that reason alone, I am happy.  Still, there is a lot of playing around and getting-used-to ahead.

Good for you!! After you play around with it for a while, it will become second nature. Have fun!! I love my laptop, and would never go back to a desk top. It goes everywhere I go. My life line. Enjoy the day!

Yeah! New toy! Are you going to name it? Much like every car I have ever owned, I have named all of my computers and even my backup drive! Enjoy your new toy.

Computers are like underwear. We really need our own. Have fun. Soon you will be comfortable with it.

Good for your brain cells! I'm on a learning curve with the iPad, too. Good Luck.
