So, I’ve been threatening to throw my laptop out the window for a while now. It’s not that old, but it is incredibly slow and has the tendoncy to not want to do what I want it to. Its a Dell that we got from Best Buy probably 2 – 2 1/2 years ago or so, and I’m not super hard on it I don’t think. I’ve kepy my virus protection up to date and the only large program I run is Photoshop. My husband has a Macbook and when I get frustrated he likes to comment that I wouldn’t be frustrated if I had an Apple product… While that may be true, its not something I can afford right now, plus getting a Mac would mean buying Photoshop again, which would add dramatically to the cost of a new computer. So, the Dell and I have to learn to co-exist for the time being.
My lovely husband played hero for me and did a bunch of stuff to try to speed up the laptop and get it to work better. I now don’t have all the cool Windows animations and all my icons and stuff are old school, but my computer has sped up dramatically. Now if I can just get my Bamboo Pen to work again… That’s next.
