When my old computer died John set about finding me another. I admit I never would have even looked at this one because it is a tablet rather than a laptop but he found a great deal so I told him OK. I don't know if I'll ever use the screen to write on, I'm not even sure I know why I'd want to, but maybe some great use will present itself.
I spent the weekend moving my files from my old hard drive and everything seems to be working fine. John is going to add more ram so that it is a little faster. So far I am quite pleased.
