Thank goodness! Though I did not want to spend any money on a new computer, I had no choice when my surprisingly reliable and durable 9 year old 2004 Dell Dimension 8400 crashed catastrophically this weekend. I replaced it with an HP laptop equipped with Windows 8, an i7 quad core cpu, and a stunning touchscreen. Suddenly, my "PC" experience is lightening fast and very Droid-like. Sometimes, one doesn't know what one is missing.
