Here's the Skinny
I hate my new laptop. It doesn't have a dial-up modem and I've tried adding two different ones but it refuses to recognise any new hardware. And when I drive out to an area where wifi is available, it some times will and some times won't connect. AND it takes it upon itself to shut off whenever it feels like it (and no, it has nothing to do with the battery.) So I took out my iMac which is 9-10 years old and which is the only computer I have ever loved. It worked great for years... until one of the dogs got tangled in the cords and yanked it off the stand... and pulled it around the room for a while. Even then, it worked semi-ok except for a few oddball things and not wanting to work with discs any more. But I had just bought my first laptop... the one that is at least 5 years old now and I started using it more and more. Now that IT has died and I'm so unhappy with the new one, I hooked up the MAC and am using that. I'll keep the new laptop in the car and may have to use it for all photo stuff, but at least I can be at home AND on the computer at the same time again. Yea!
