He Loves Me.....

Author: MiniBullyMom aka Laura B. // Category: , ,
I got a combined Valentines/Birthday present today!!! A new Dell Studio 1537 laptop with all the bells and whistles I could ever want. The best part is that it's RED!!!! I'm having fun playing with it and tweaking it just so tonight. I haven't even had a chance to check out all the features on it. It was a killer deal through the Dell Outlet because someone custom ordered it then cancelled the order after the laptop was made. So we got a $1200 laptop for half price! The extended battery alone is worth $200, not to mention that it has a webcam and fingerprint reader. I can have it scan my finger instead of remembering passwords to the various sites I visit daily. Although I have decided to not utilize that feature for bill paying and financial stuff...it's cool but I just dont' trust any program that saves passwords on the computer.

About the only "bummer" out of the deal is that PSE5 and PS7 aren't Vista compatible so I now have three nice big PS text books that are no good. I'm thinking it's time to bite the bullet and upgrade to PSE7 now or figure out ACDSee's Photo Editor program. I also have to re-install Office 2009 since I use Excel and Word and they only include Works - I prefer Word over Works because I don't have to save everything twice - by default it saves everything as a "works" file so I also have to save wordprocessing documents as a "word file" if I want most people to be able to open the document later.

Oh goodness, girlfriend, you do have some things to learn! You should chat with me more. :)

First, you hotlinked the graphic to my site. Hotlinking is a big no-no. If you want animated in your blog, you need your own host. Each time someone visits your blog, the image uses bandwidth from my host.

Also, PSE 5 is compatible with Vista, you just need to go to the adobe website and get the plug-in.

Have fun with your new laptop!
