I am without a new computer! After trying out three machines, I gave up! (For the time-being at least…if you know me, you know it probably won’t last long. LOL)
I dumped some applications on my trusty, very old, souped up, bionic Dell Inspiron E1505 and it’s stopped whining about it’s memory. My world is peaceful once again.
The Yog2 Pro 2 was unwieldy. Darn, double darn!….I wanted to like it so much, but I was just tense all the time, struggling with teeny tiny tabs on the web browser, my fingers missing the keys on the chicklet keyboard, and the touch screen not working with various programs. I took it back to Best Buy and they were very gracious.
I took home a Lenovo Idea pad and after much tweaking, customizing, disabling of features and dealing with it dropping my WiFi connection repeatedly….I called it quits. I took it back and decided to just lay low, let the dust settle and wait for the manufacturers and developers to get their sh**t together.
No one should have to go through all this to get comfortable with a new machine. And it’s not just me…in my research to find solutions, I discovered that other consumers are having the same issues. I won’t bore you with all the gory details here, but suffice it to say that “the boys” are going to have to get on the same page and play together nice before I jump into the game again. If it’s this frustrating for me (the lover of almost all things techie), imagine what it’s like for the average person!
On the positive side, most people are not trying to do all the things I do on the computer, so if you absolutely must get a new machine, talk to me first and let me advice you about the best solution for your particular needs. I do consultations and shopping trips and I can tweak and disable things to make the transition more comfortable for you.
It’s been a hectic three weeks, but I’ve learned a lot that I can share and that makes me a happy girl. I took the hits so you don’t have to and it’s my greatest pleasure to be able to help.
In Joy…no matter what,
