Well, my guy talked me into it. The old computer had viruses. To reload would cost more than it was worth. Ergo, I'm now the proud possessor of a new laptop.
Alas, it comes with the Windows 7 and Word 10 and all those things that I am having to upgrade to. I hate having to relearn how to do stuff. that was second nature before.
But it's a necessity. And I shall persevere.
