David's Musings



Houston, we have a problem

It appears that I have a “laptop”problem and intend changing the operating system that I use. This will necessitate about 3/4 hours work and if successful, I will see you then – if not it means the expense of a new laptop tomorrow!

    Desktop is the way forward. Piece by piece repairable and upgradable, I’m surrounded by demised laptops.

    For serious work, a desktop has always been the best choice. Repairable, as Flyinthesky writes. Worst case scenario, the MB blows. Replace the MB, install OS, and restore data. HD collapses, replace HD, restore all Data using “image restore”. 30 mins max.

    A laptop I use inly while traveling or sitting in the garden.

      I recently upgraded an old destop MB CPU MEM HD total cost 225, it would make a £700 laptop look like a diabled snail.
