To my new little friend.
The hubs finally had enough trying to deal with my son's computer crashing and locking up all thee time. Our old system died with a painful amber light of death and could not be revived. it was, after all, 9 years old. My son recently built his own system and let us borrow his old one until the hubs decided he could part with the money.
I found an all-in-one that fit the budget and our needs.....both kinda low, really. lol
Dell 2020....built in wifi and bluetooth...anybody need a wifi adapter? LOL
4GB ram. 1TB hard, card reader, dvd/cd writer, drive faster than my old system 2.6 vs 3.0...what's not to love?
Missing XP, it was sooooooo much more intuitive that windows 8, but I am adjusting. I am thinking I probably should've splurged for the touch screen and a few more usb ports, but the screen is bigger than my last system and I didn't even use half the ports anyway.( and they were out of tons of units and I was tired of thinking and waiting) lol For what I do, this system is more than adequate and will last a long time before I feel the need for an update. Dual monitors would've been great and I can probably get a usb adapter and make it work if I really, really want to.....we shall see.
It's actually a more powerful system than the one that died yet I still almost feel the need to get bigger, badder, faster. Our real needs and my sensible side won out. Besides, I can do a lot with all that money we didn't spend. I have a bad feeling that this is my birthday gift though...rats...I should've waited another week!
