Well, it was bound to happen some time. My laptop moved on to the big computer heaven in the sky. Since working at home on the computer is a huge part of Mum's work and my work, we do have a desktop backup (well the laptop was really the backup). But our desktop is getting smaller and smaller as programs get larger and larger - and we couldn't work with just one 'puter.
So what did we do all last week? Yep, worked on computers. It took two days to backup everything off the laptop, since it sounded like it was sawing logs, clicking more than my clicker, and slow as heck. Then it took another day to put all the stuff on the laptop onto the desktop. Then we had to decide how to replace the laptopper.
Luckily for us, Acer just came out a week or two ago with a new, very powerful netbook. It's a little mini type of laptop - twice as powerful and twice the size of our dying laptop, with tons of computer memory, and only $349 bucks. We love our new netbook. It's small, but it's super powerful, and it's really just the right size for my paws. And it keeps it's charge for up to 7 or 8 hours, amazing for the super great price, and it's only 2.3 lbs.
So my new netbook is all loaded up, everything is moved over that I and Mum need for work, and we are finally able to get email and get some work done, woofs!!!!!
