Out with the old...In with the new!

Excitement abounds in our household....I have a new computer! Are you a Mac'er or a PC'er? There is a lot of debate in this household! Hubby is a Mac'er....I'm a PC'er! After many month's of struggling with my old computer, and after one stressful day spent in the emergency room to see if Dr. McGeek could repair the old, tired, struggling PC. Old PC spent almost two weeks in the hospital recuperating...after that he was just not the same. My dear, sweet hubby said 'why not buy a new one'! Was I delusional? Was I hearing things? NO....hubby was saying 'buy a new computer'! So, off I went to the Dell website and purchased a new, beautiful Dell Inspiron 1720! She's beautiful, she has a 17" screen for better viewing and she's a beautiful white opalescent color! Since I just got her yesterday, I'm still learning the new 'Vista' system. So far, so good...she working beautifully!

Out with the old....(Now don't feel bad old computer will still stick around. He will strickly be used for my Husqvarna Embroidery Sewing Machine. Since he can still handle 'floppy' disks, he will only be used for programming new embroidery stitches!) See, I told you he was old...who uses 'floppy' disks these days?

In with the new! Isn't she beautiful?

I can't decide what background to use? There are so many wonderful ones to choose from. For now, I'm using the upclose, dew covered blades of grass!

So......are you a Mac'er or a PC'er?

Thank you dear, sweet hubby! You are just the best!


  1. A very nice new computer - awesome!

    I am a Mac'r but have been since I was a pre-teen. I'm now 36 - I don't think I could change even if I wanted to.


  2. Oh you are so lucky. A new computer.

  3. I'm a new Mac'er as of Christmas. Santa brought me a wonderful Mac computer. I had always been a PC'er. It is different and takes some getting use to, but I am LOVING it!

    Love your new Dell!

  4. PC'er and a Dell at that!!

  5. Congrats!! It took me a little while to learn that Vista thing too.
    Enjoy it.
    Oh, I am a PC'er.

  6. Oh wow, wow, wow. What a great guy. Happy Valentine's Day, early. I work well with Mac's and PC's. I guess that makes me ambidex - er - computer. LOL

    So here's the secret of what's wrong with this picture. Someone had dropped the Archeology magazine into the motocross/racing section. Too weird. Shhhhh. Dont tell anyone.

  7. Oh you lucky girl. My computer keeps telling me I am running out of disc space. I need a new one. My son has a Mac and loves it but I am afraid I am too old to learn a new system. LOL

  8. Hi Alice, congrats on your beautiful new computer.

  9. Congratulations on your new laptop! I've used both, Mac for newspaper and magazine editor-in-chief jobs and PC for my personal choice. I also have a Dell Inspiron (the E1705) and love it.

  10. OOH a new baby (computer) Congratulations!
    Both of my kids come and change my background every so often. they customize it with photos they have shot and scanned images. Lots of fun.

    I have a nice Mac
    With Kindness,

  11. Lovely new computer...I am an former Mac'r. After a big problem with OS10 I gave up and bought a Dell Inspiron 9300 with the big screen...I love my lap top as much as you can love a computer...have to forgive them a lot...you know.

  12. I'm a PCer and have a Dell Inspiron laptop...but it's over 4 years old....I would so love to upgrade! I LOVE that there's a number pad on yours. What a nice hubby!
