I opened my 2 year old laptop the other day and within minutes it made a very electrical POP and it left this world to go where dead laptops go. I now have a very expensive boat anchor. Not only did it die after just 2 years, but it died last February as well. I was able to breathe life back into it then, but this time I welcome its demise.
My laptops are 17 inch monsters with lots of horsepower under the hood because I need that power for the video and picture editing that I do. Unfortunately these behemoths come with large price tags.
I really love a great computer that is fast and does its job well. What I hate is having to rebuild the new ones. I do have backups available, but all the software still needs to be reloaded and adjusted just the way I like. Inevitably, there is something that I can't find. I always struggle with getting email up a running as well. You would think with all the recent practice I have had I would be getting good at this. Nope.
It is definitely a Love / Hate relationship between me and my computers. Oh, if anyone would like a lightly used boat anchor, please let me know.
