Rarely do I 'need' anything but every now and again there is something I really 'should' have. (It's all relative, I know.)
Finally I had to agree with my husband and relent to a new computer. In general, I can do whatever I need to on my current computer but when the bank won't let me access my accounts to use all the various online features I guess I have to throw in the towel.
I've wised up, however, and won't let my husband do the choosing. My last two laptops were Christmas gifts.
This year I went shopping and tested various laptops.
In the end...it's not the actual laptop that is making the difference. It is the adjustment from Windows 7 to Windows 8. You'd think I was going from 7 to 108. There are that many differences.
This is me in the wee hours of the morning reading my email in the dark. Isn't the screen pretty? One of the first things I figured out was how to change the wallpaper. Just like blog backgrounds, I like them to be seasonal.
Really, take my advice, don't skimp on the touch screen. Those apps just cry out to be touched.
21 days and counting!
