Shopping for a new computer. Technical difficulties (‘puter “bit the dust”) will pause my posts for a bit…….not too long, hopefully! Have an awesome Monday….πŸ’œπŸ˜˜

    No fun at all. We have a neighbor who does great work when we need it, but shopping for a new computer is no fun at all!

      You are so correct!! Zipped into LaCrosse after lunch today to Best Buy. I hope I made a decent choice. Will be in later this week and ready for pick-up early next week. Then, to install my programs………..I’ld rather be quilting!! LOL!!!

    Bummer! I can relate! My hard drive crashed a few months ago in my HP laptop. I thought it was a gonner, too, as laptops are pretty much disposable these days. But No! First I took it to Best Buy to the Geek squad. What a rip off! More than buying a new laptop. So I then took it to a neighborhood computer repair just to see what they said before biting the bullet and buying a new one. Well! They said my hard drive crashed and they replaced it with a Solid State drive, retrieved my data, reloaded Windows 10 and reinstalled all my data, photos, etc, all for $180. The new drive is lighten fast. So you might try taking yours to a shop, not Best Buy. Good luck!! And sorry for your computer 😦 ❀

      This β€œLenovo” laptop has been a problem since I got it (4 years ago) and am looking forward to replacing it. I am thinking HP (my first one was an HP) and Best Buy is probably where I will go. Have done Dell (online) but that’s a hassle. Agreed…Geek Squad is expensive. The newer HPs get good ratings. Guess I’ll see. Thnx for sharing your experience. I really appreciate it!πŸ’œ

        I also had a Lenovo. The hinge broke right off the bat. Had it fixed once but when it broke the second time I trashed it. I bought my HP at Best Buy. It’s an ENVY and I love it. The hard drive crash was my fault 😦 I don’t have a problem with Best Buy, just the Geek Squad. Do you know you have to have an appointment now just for them to look at your computer? Good luck! I hate shopping for computers and I was a microprocessor design engineer in my previous life! If possible you should try to pick a laptop with a SSD (solid state) hard drive. The difference in speed is amazing. ❀

          THE HINGE??!!!! Mine is held together with postal strapping tape!!!! ‘Puter is totally locked up. Been acting funny for a while. Defragged, etc, no help. Will look into SSD (although speed is not really needed for my interests). Would have considered Mac but Cloud back-up is Windows and I do my blog in Windows Live Writer. Thnx, again πŸ’œ
