I still need to run a bunch of diagnostic programs at boot up. The PC is only 4 1/2 years old at this point. I might be looking at something other than a Dell
at this point.
Good experience for the kids Tom...shows them how fortunate they are to have what they do
I had a Dell and after 3 hard drives the Mother Board finally went...(was only 4 years old
). We went to Best Buy and bought a Lenovo
. I am happy with the performance but hate Windows 8
. Give me XP

IMO MS is getting too complicated and my believe is that is the root of a lot of the issues I see at work and hear folks talk about here. My son is MS System Administer/Technician and keeps our machine going currently. He used to sing the MS party line but doesn't argue the point/belief with me much anymore. Either my grumpy old man act is working or I'm right.
I do almost everything computer related on my IPhone or IPad nowadays anyway.
Well crap ... Getting a little old for you NE guys.
I run XP on my older ex-work laptop and it performs quite well
and I have a Samsung tablet running android that I use when we travel and have less problems then I do with windows 8
...The missus has an I pod touch and an I phone and loves them but for some reason I can't get into MAC programs and operating systems. I like my tablet and my phone has the same android system as the tablet so it's a plus for me
