Crash and Burn

RIP.....my laptop died.... I've had two disasters this week now. First my external hard drive decided to die and now this. I'm using my son's computer in the U.S. to blog while frantically searching for a replacement. Since I photo shop now, I'll have to upgrade a bit to accommodate it. Oh, the inhumanity!

What laptop to choose? I had my husbands' old Dell for ages and now there are so many more things to consider: battery life, Wide Screen, Wireless, Blue Ray, Cameras, ATI Video, HDMI outputs, etc., etc.

Once, all we cared about was basic email and occasional surfing. Those days are long gone. Now we play games, edit photos, show movies and listen to music downloads with external speakers. When will it all end?

I'll be back soon to blog yet again. Please keep me in mind and pray that I make a wise choice. When it comes to technology, I'm clueless!

I'm only hoping to salvage the hard drive so I can transfer it onto the new one...that's if I can find one that doesn't break the bank, lol!
