Oct. 21

The new lap top arrived. I love the fact that all I had to do was plug my printer in and it was installed. Wow- before I had to go online, find the drivers, download them, and install the thing-several times. Seriously, all I did was plug it in and it was ready to print. I did a test print because I could not believe it was that easy. Another cool thing is the lap top has a finger print reader instead of a password to open it. I simply swipe my finger over it and it starts. No more reading books while I wait for the thing to boot.
The only downside is that the key board is different. There is a column to the left of tab, caps lock, shift, control. So that I tend to hit caps lock instead of "a" - and when I go for "control c" I get a calculator. LOL. must retrain my fingers to not reach so far.
So far Windows 7 is intuitive- although I'm still trying to figure out how to do the cool snappy thing that lets you see two documents side by side. If you work in Mac, you've been able to do this a long time. Anyway- that's my experience so far. Cheers~
