My 'old' computer arrived from Johannesburg yesterday, so I am now connected again. It's quite nice to have my familiar machine back - the one that was stolen was less than a year old and my fingers still know the keyboard on this machine. It is going to be interesting to see if I miss any of the Vista features now that I'm back on XP.
This pc is a nice one - 2.8Ghz processor which is still pretty good, although single core. But - the battery is unreliable, the hard disk is very slow and the cd drive is not what it should be.
I am definately not complaining!
