The new computer...a laptop! The bad news is that it has the Vista system...UGH! Received the computer on Tuesday, March 24th and have had to call Dell technical services 3 (yes 3 times) already. Yesterday, after spending most of the day downloading programs, it had to have a systems restore back to factory mode. So once again had to reload programs. This time though I'm taking it one program at a time to check for compatibility. What a pain!

Hi... It might not be Vista giving you the difficulties. My laptop--an HP--runs on Vista Home Premium w/2g of RAM and it's been great. Sometimes Vista gets a bit 'cranky' if it has to struggle with low RAM. There is a small learnning curve in the beginning. I read the "Vista 4 Dummies" book and then everything was fine. Congrats on your new system!
Hugs, /;-)

I have had trouble with Vista but that is because it has insufficient RAM. If you have plenty it will be fine once you get used to it.
