I finally picked up my new computer, and I want to thank all those people that commented on my post about my computer meltdown the other day, I was overwhelmed by all the kind words that everyone left, and to those that didn’t have time to comment but let me know they were there by hitting “like” I thank you all also.
For those that had time to read about my computer meltdown, you know that I decided to get a computer built after going from shop to shop; it was cheaper as well than a computer off the shelf for what I wanted. I actually found a place that builds new computers not far from home, and it is only a small shop, but the service was fantastic, the guys were very helpful and with my knowledge of computers which amounts to zero, they were more than patient. I would recommend this place to anybody. They also repair computers and also sell second hand computers, as well as new, it really is a one stop shop.
When I went to pick up my new computer they even gave me a care package, which had a LCD cleaner for my screen, a couple of discs including windows 7, and a 4 GB memory stick.
For anyone that lives in Brisbane Australia, and needs anything to do with computers here is their web site. Computerdrive
They transferred everything for me from my old computer to my new computer, which was a blessing for me, all my documents, photos, favourites, just magic.
The guys even set up my ISP e-mail. Now of course I have to learn about this new system, and set it up the way I want, this will take me some time, but no doubt I will learn a bit in the process.
My old computer
I had Vista Home Premium (32 bit) 2GB ram, 360 hard drive, DVD burner, card reader, it was an Acer and it lasted just over 6 years.
My new computer
Being built from scratch it is no particular brand, but a whole lot of different brands.
New Intel Pentium DC2. 7 GHz, 4GB Ram, 500GB HDD, DVD Burner, card reader, Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
I comes with a 12 months warranty which includes parts and service. That is as far as my knowledge goes.
My screen is nearly new as I had to replace that only a few months ago, so I only needed the computer itself, I’m still using the original Acer keyboard, although some of the letters are missing, but it is still going strong just the same. We also decided to get another desk top computer from them as well, so now we have 2 desk top computers, one each.
