I know. I have had a Dell computer for such a long time. My previous laptop (now headed to Northwestern College to get a degree in Early Childhood Education) was a Dell, and I LOVED it.
I always have mixed feelings when I get a new computer. It takes me about a week to get accustomed to the new keyboard, the new operating system, and especially to get all 'my stuff' loaded on.
Paranoid creature that I am, I backed up the old laptop files to an external hard drive, my jump drive, and I emailed copies of my novels and WIP's to myself just in case something happened while moving files.
One thing I love about this laptop is the fingerprint identification. Instead of typing in lots of user names and passwords, I can just slide my finger across the reader and Bing! I'm logged in. How very cool.
Makes me think of the 6 Million Dollar Man and the IBM commercial Steve Austin/Lee Majors did a few years ago when this technology first became available.
Nanananananananana...Did you watch the 6MDM? I was a little young to watch it, but I did enjoy the Bionic Woman a few years later.
