technical repair

trouble with two laptops now smoothed out.  two different problems.  one had time outs and would not load internet pages – turned out to be a virus.  the other laptop was a problem I guess I created.  I bought that pc with Windows 7 installed and so had chosen to install WIN 8….and the troubles slowly built up.  so my local tech gurus fix stuff at Free Line Electronics, in Midland, Ontario, highly recommended.  they backed up my data, did a clean install of WIN 7.  Result was tow newly smoothly running laptops, the return to WIN 7 had that unit, a Sony Vaio, running much better than when it first emerged from the box immediately after purchase.  happy computer guy, me.  my wallet took a 160 dollar hit. back to smooth computing.

new laptop first impressions

Sony Vaio E series

liking it, battery length with no DVD use is about 5 hours, like the case and the white keyboard., texture pattern on the case is also very very nice

with DVD use, charge time drops to near three hours.

my previous laptop was a lower priced Gateway that had a couple of ergonomic features that I never got totally comofortable with….an odd touchpad design, and a shortish battery charge length……but it was inexpensive and worked ok for my kind of software efforts.

probably my favourite laptop is my still running but needing some replacement parts (battery number 3 and the power adapter cable) iBook G3 that I bought back in 2001.

I am considering spending for those parts and using it for word processing, hmmmm

this time around the budget just could not handle the Apple laptop price points and the 13.3 inch screen turned me off.
