It's time for a new laptop and I spent some time doing research on the weekend. I had intended to wait for some good Christmas sales, but I got all excited when I was doing the research. I couldn't wait. I placed my order on Monday morning and received it yesterday by courier.
It's so nice and new. It's a Thinkpad. I compared similar models from the local stores, and for the same money, I chose my favorite brand of laptop, again. It's got much larger hard drive and 3 years warranty which I like. So while I should be starting to work on the borders for my nines and vines quilt, I'm distracted.
I forgot all the little things you need when setting up a new computer. Looking for printer drivers, re-installing sewing machine and quilting software, setting up Itunes, etc, installing anti-virus, doing a backup, making recovery disks etc. It's amazing how the time passes when you're tinkering with all the utilities. I'll get back to the sewing on the weekend.
