Major computer woes . . . .

She is taking in her last few breaths - this computer of mine. Ughhh . . . I'm trying to make the big decision -Should I just have this computer rebuilt? Or buy a new one? Go MAC?? or stay with a PC????

Choices. .

Choices . .

and more Choices . . . . .

at a really bad time!

During naptime today, we are going to try to remove everything from the computer and start from scratch and see if that will buy us more time.

Maybe that will work . .

and maybe it won't . .

We'll see.

I'll tell ya' - live without a computer is not life at all! ha - I'm sure people can do it. They did way back when. I mean, people lived without washing machines too - but it made it kinda stinky!

Well, it stinks not having a computer as well!

Know that no matter what happens, I won't live without one for too long!

If you decide to go new--GET A MAC! I've had mine for 2 years. Not a minute of trouble. DH bought his PC laptop at the same time...freezes, lock-ups, lock-outs, glitches, issues...

DD is a graphic designer. She has had the same MacBook for 4 years (got it at the beginning of college). No problems; no upgrades. She just got a Mac desktop for graduation. Incredible stuff going on on that computer.

The new MAC operating system is designed to run Microsoft products just like a PC.

They are more expensive but when you average the cost over lifetime...

Oh--our local NBC station did a thing with high school students going tech free (no computer; no cell) for a few weeks (I forget how long). They actually enjoyed it. Yeah, no thanks!

So weird....mine just did the same thing. I needed a new harddrive. But still having other quirks. Wow what did I do before computers let alone a laptop? I'm dying here! I would go Mac, i love it....never any viruses. My issues are due to my little ones getting it and dropping it!

Get a MAC! I love mine and you will too with your photos and such.

Have a great week! I love the monongrammed painting in the last post.

Once you go MAC ~ you never go BACK!

I'm just sayin' -- worth every penny. I would lick mine if I weren't afraid it would ruin the screen - just the space saving is worth it enough!! PROMISE!

I totally agree with Natalie! I was SCARED of the MAC but man I'm so glad we took the plunge! You will LOVE it! I will NEVER go back! ;)

We are going through the same issues. DH just had to rebuild his and tonight we are hoping the reinstall of Windows will work.

Good luck to you. I have a netbook (which I am using as I type) but I like to use my "big laptop" for certain things!!!

Hope everything works out!!!

Poor thing!!! Computer problems suck! I totally could not live without one. And you have an online business, so you really need one! Hope it all works out!

I am a woe-begone, depressed, discouraged, beat-my-head-against-the-wall PC user.

Yech.

I'm sure you've already made up your mind, but I just switched from a Dell to a Mac. And I am SO in love!
