  1. Thanks everyone, guess I'll start watching the ads and visiting the computer stores next week.
  2. Thanks for asking, lets see, email of course, using the web for information, I like to read foreign newspapers, some graphics ( I do stained glass, windows etc. so I download lots of pictures to make patterns).

    Thanks Adam22 and Nigsy, Do you have any other advice on specs for a new computer?--anything I can use for a guideline when I do go shopping? My old computer was custum made and it lasted a long time--should I go that route again or stick with a ready made one? Dianne

    I could use some advice. I need to buy a new computer, mine is 7 yrs old , and starting to go(XP). I have always heard 'never change to a new system when it first comes out because there will always be some bugs to work out'. How long should I wait till I go shopping for a new computer?I need 'workhouse computer'--I don't mind having to spend a few dollars but I don't want to waste the money. I was thinking around Feb. 2010 is when I should start shopping. I should add I am 62 yrs. old, with medium computer skills. Please give me your opinions. Thank you
