The beast that is my 10-year old desktop is near its end. I am loathe to replace it because we've really bonded over these last ten years. But the computer is having problems accepting a memory upgrade and the operating system is no longer supported by its maker. Reluctantly, I have to move on.
I thought about getting a Mac, but there are some functions that I absolutely must have in Word and they're not compatible (or at least I can't figure out how to do it) on a Mac. Plus the learning curve is a bit steep. I was given a Mac for my office and begged (begged I tell you!) our IT department to take it back in favor of the old and outdated desktop it replaced.
I've owned nothing but Dells and I am willing to remain loyal. However, I've heard some less-than-encouraging things about the new Dell systems. I don't do a lot of high-end computing and don't require a powerful system.
Does anyone have any of the new Dell Inspiron desktops? Does anyone have a Lenovo system? I've heard good things about them, but again, the learning curve...
What's your experience?
