I’m getting a laptop

Post by MikaelaArsenault on Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:11 am

Hi everyone. You know that I haven’t been posting much lately and I’m about to explain why.

My computer had a major issue yesterday when I was trying to update it and it’s now no longer usable anymore, so I’m now getting a laptop to replace it.

I like Dells because they are easy to find repair information on, on the net.  By the way, don't forget a good backup program can save you from update problems.  You just load the last saved backup.  I use AOMEI backupper (funny name) it's free and does both a full backup and incremental backups.  You need to make a restore DVD, once, and you need a external device to backup too.  You can find out more at:  https://www.backup-utility.com/ they also have a help page at: https://www.backup-utility.com/help/

I wish you the best with your new lappy.  I hope it brings you loads of fun and discovery, not to mention answers to any homework you might get (giggle).

You are almost certainly correct, considering, of course, the exceptionally high build quality of Lego laptops these days. With that variety of benefit, who wouldn't want to punch any at those vividly coloured acrylic keys?

The only question is obviously how one charges them, but mike1 is enigmatic to the extent where we may never know. It's (come on everyone, you can clearly fill in the blank here).

One of my very first PCS was actually a Dell believe it or not.

Luckily it wasn't a 2004-2006 Dell.

I forget the model and year it was made, but it's most likely from the early 2000's.

2004-2006 are usually the mid-2000s aka when AIM was at its peak, if oldversions.com is anything to go by.

I'll most likely be investing in a new laptop in the near future, as well.  I've been relying on a bargain Acer for the past year or so since my power Asus died after nearly 7 years of unparalleled service.  I buried it in my backyard, complete with full funerary service.  Crying or Very sad

Asus computers are pretty bad. Both of mine died within three years (one even died in five months)

When they initially debuted, they were pretty top of the line. Unfortunately, my understanding is that they've become more or less average over time.

As much as I wish I was still running Windows 7, I'm stuck with Windows 10 by virtue (or lack thereof) of the fact that it came with my present interim laptop.

My main complaint with Windows 10 is that it tries too hard to be something other than Windows.  I use Windows because I'm comfortable with it, not because I want to use an iPad.  That, and serious security/privacy issues not limited to the fact that we now have practically no control over whether to install or opt out of updates, giving us much less control as end users.
