I’ve been thinking for a few days about upgrading to a faster computer. This one made me happy when I got it, but I’m using the internet more now, and since it’s an income stream for me, I thought an upgrade might be in order. Yesterday, for instance, I made 15 blog posts. That’s a lot of time spent here at the desk, as most of them were fairly lengthy. I was thinking a lap-top might be a wise choice, as it would give me freedom to be where I wanted to be and still get my work done, especially if we could swing wireless internet.
Well, there are a couple of snags in my plan. Dh tells me that wireless is really slow compared to our current connection, so that would be a really bad thing. The idea of a laptop still appeals to me, though, so we’ll see how that goes. I don’t know if I could even blog without an on connection, because I like to/need to link to what I am talking about, and frequently need to do research as I am typing even the most personal of posts.
Here’s the other one: I don’t want VISTA. Everything I’ve heard about it begins with “It stinks” and ends with “It blows”. In the middle, it’s “security issues”. So, I’ve been leaning toward a mac. We had one several years ago, and I really liked it. However, when I asked DH about getting that instead of a windows based system, he told me they were higher in cost.
I don’t want to take out secured loans for a new computer or any other thing. I just want a faster system for me, and to let the girls use this one for schoolwork. I’m just not convinced I can get what I need at a price I am willing to afford.
