Error Messages:

Presently I have a Dell computer, running Windows ME and an HP PSC 950 printer. A lot of people tell me that Windows ME has had problems since Day One!  My grandson says that my computer is getting old and slow and that I should be considering buying something more modern and with Windows XP installed.  I will admit, my system sure seems slow,:-\  considering that I have "high speed"!  I have no idea what to buy when I decide to make the big change.  Would a Laptop be the way to go, or would I be disappointed with it, as compared to my present Desktop setup?

I don't need a Laptop for portability, since my husband and I are both retired, and just enjoy using the computer at home.  I just thought that the Laptop would be so compact...but....maybe I would find it too compact and perhaps lose some of the features of my Desktop.  I don't know how to compare the two beasts.  I enjoy emailing, searching, digital pictures, etc.

Is one brand or model better than another. Huh? Perhaps you can't recommend a certain brand, but I would appreciate your comments and advice.

Thanks!

i know it is not an easy thing to do but when you get a new pc by dell and gateway etc. they give you lots of uneeded junk that takes up your hard drive like lots of trial of stuff and it make take a while to get it to how you like but if you make your own(highly encouraged have a quality trained professional do it) it is perfect because you put what ever you want on it and it comes with just what you need and none of the excess garbage.


Also making your own pc can be much cheaper than buying a brand name one if you know the right places to buy the parts.

If you do choose to make your own pc i recommend http://www.newegg.com  this is a very good and decently priced website for parts and accessories

Dear Sherlock 19:

Thanks for your reply.  What you say makes a lot of sense, but I guess I am more into making casseroles than computers!  If and when I decide to get a new computer though, your idea is worth considering and I'm sure there's people around here who would be able to help.

Again, thanks and hope you are having a nice weekend.
