It is really terrifying to spend that much money!!! A great big chunk of tax refund. But oooh, how I do love my new wonder machine! The old monitor weighed about 35 pounds... the new one about 3 pounds. The old monitor took up the whole desk...the new one only about 3 inches thick. The old keyboard went clickety clackity...the new one is almost silent.
Only one hitch so far. Our scanner is not compatible with the Windows Vista Home Premium software. I went to the web site for our brand of scanner and they say they are working on an update for the driver to use with the new Vista. I can hook up the scanner on the kids' dinosaur computer (another hand-me-down) and then transfer stuff with the usb flash drive, but for now that seems like too much work and too much to learn all at once. My brain almost exploded from trying to pretend I was a computer geek while setting up the new computer.
