Happy Birthday to ME!!!

I have a new toy! Yesterday was my birthday, not telling how old....LOL! But have been wanting to get a lap top for some time and found one I liked from Dell, they had a Mother's Day special so ...... my husband said happy mother's day and birthday, since they are a week apart.
Now trying to figure out how to get things from the desktop to the laptop, I know I can do this....yea, right!!! Put all my documents on a flash drive and loaded them onto the laptop but they ALL went to the desk top!!! So now all I see it all my documents and it's covering up the picture on there. LOL OK, I will figure this out and move them where I can't see all of them at the same time. GRRRRRRRRR!!! A new brain exercise for sure!!!

Oh, happy happy Birthday Jane!!! I love the new laptop! I have a Dell, it's like yours, except older and yours is nicer. I bought mine used (it was 1 yr. old) from my friend's dad. It's been a good laptop, I will use it until it dies on me!

Oh, thank you PG!!! I love the laptop too, still getting used to it. the "no" mouse is different but I'll get used to it. I did finally figure out how to get the documents off the desktop.....LOL
So many NEW things to learn!!! And wondering if you can teach an old dog new tricks?????? ;-)

Happy birthday, Jane! My mom just got her very first laptop -- a netbook, actually -- and I've been helping her set it up. I wonder what my kids will be helping me with someday. ;o)

Katharine Swan said...

By the way, tell Gilly that since you were nice enough to give him applesauce for HIS birthday, for yours he ought to give you a stress-free ride and a well-behaved creek crossing. ;o)

Sarah said...

Oh Happy Birthday Jane!!!! Can you hear me singing?? What a wonderful gift!! You will figure it out. Our new family computer came with Vista - all new details - took me a bit to figure it all out!! Whoo hoo enjoy!!! Hugs, Sarah

Amanda, thanks, it's great and I love the 17" screen, can see all my pictures better.
Julie, I was having a hard time deciding of HP or Dell but the Dell had such a good deal on the Studio 17 that I decided on it.

YAY! Congrats on your new laptop!
I have a Dell desktop and a Toshiba laptop. I like both, but because of my injury I appreciate my laptop more since I can't sit at a desk for very long without my leg swelling up and my knee becoming stiff.
I spent a lot of time on my latop. Love it!

Have fun with yours!
