As promised, I took Haley to Costco yesterday afternoon to pick out the laptop that she preferred. She had picked out this beauty. Well, not exactly, her computer has a 550GB hard drive without the office software pre-installed.
I took care of that though. I ended up purchasing the Microsoft home and student 2010 (3 license) package Costco was selling.
Today I set up the computer for her. First downloading the Microsoft Security Essentials package. Then downloading the Firefox 4 web browser software. Un-installing all the “junk ware” that usually comes with a new computer. Then installing the MS Office software. Finally making the “DVD Back-up and Restore set of Discs”.
All this ONLY took about 4 hours! But it’s done, she now is using her new Dell Laptop, and is a very happy young lady!
I am expecting and hoping that this laptop will last the duration that she is in college.
Tomorrow if the weather is nice, without rain, I hope to get my lawn mowed. It is past the cut height now because of all the rain we have had lately. I might be cutting it a couple times in the next few days. Then will come the weed spray. Already I see a dandelion in the lawn.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless
