Disappointment with Computer technology

Real Estate Agent with Realty ONE Group 65491

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz is very disappointed with computor technology with yet another laptop going down ;o(

In the last 3-4 years I have purchased 2 Microsoft computers which lasted about 6+ months and then they fail with different problems. By the time I bring them in, get them fixed and pay the bill I could have bought another new one.

Well I will never purchase another PC laptop computer run by Microsoft. And 2 weeks ago my Mac Pro 17 inch took a dump and I can't log into it ;o(

I have had the Apple Mac for approx 10 years and bought it used from a friend at ActiveRain. I have never had problems with the Mac until recently and have not been able to blog, check emails, etc.

I am not really sure what I am going to do? I am posting this blog with my smart phone and really don't think I am going to spend anymore money on laptops, or personal computers.

So that being said you will be seeing less and less of old Vegas Bob on ActiveRain. I am tired of wasting my money on computers and am very disappointed with the latest technology, all the updates and or crashes happening lately.

I got the black screen of death on an HP computer a few months ago. 

Then I lost one (!) in Baltimore last month.

OH VB:) do not blame the computers for less activity on your part, go run out and get yourself a good laptop, a Lenovo and you will have no more complaint posts rather you will be praising Lenovo:)Endre

Morning VB.

While I will never say never, I doubt if I'll ever go back to a PC.  My Mac is doing just great. Like everything, we all have a life span, Mac's just last longer

Ugh, I don't think I could live without a computer anymore! I love my Macbook Pro. I hope you find a computer or tablet that works for you!

Technology is wonderful, but it is not always reliable and sure is a nuisance when it doesn't work properly.  I feel that I have had pretty good luck with laptops that I have had and I have never really tried apple products, other than my iPad, which I didn't feel was all that great.

Hi Bob,
Bummer!  I guess maybe I've been lucky.  I'm a PC person and my computers have always lasted several years... the last one about 10 years.  I hope you can re-evaluate and stick around.  Posting from a phone is way too laborious for me.

Vegas Bob, I sure hope we still see you in the Rain. I had a bad run for a couple years and finally decided to buy a Dell even though I hear a lot of people say bad things about them. Knock on wood .... 3 years and going strong!
