well, in all actuality, it was my hard drive that died. My Dell computer is only four years old, you would think it would have lasted longer.
At any rate, I just wanted to mention it because I won't be able to scan and/or post to my blog until I get the new one. That will probably be sometime around October 3rd when I get my monthly paycheck.
I'm not the most "computer oriented" person there is, so if anyone has any helpful hints on buying a new computer or what to look for, etc, I would appreciate it very much. This will actually be the first computer I buy for myself on my own. The Dell computer was a very generous gift from my sister Stephanie a little over four years ago.
I'm kind of struggling between a desktop or a laptop. Basically I use the computer only for receiving and sending e-mails. Also, scanning, downloading &/or uploading pictures to save and edit for my blog. I would love to eventually try some digital art, however, for some reason I'm very intimidated by it.
This last computer has Microsoft Vista, which was a pain in the rear. There are lots of problems with Vista. I can't wait to get Microsoft 7. So, again, if anyone wants to point out anything I should look for, feel free. Also, I have no idea what brand is better than the next.
I look forward to doing a new art posting with my new computer the first week of October. I thank you in advance for any computer tips you might give me. Is it really the end of summer and the beginning of fall already? Wow!
