Computer problems, again!


Ugh! I can hardly believe that another computer has died on me. It really is so frustrating. The screen on the old Macbook that I have been using recently has gone completely black. It’s either the logic board or the graphics card or some other thing that isn’t worth fixing, said the men at the apple store.

I even had a template ready to share. How sad. I’ll have to get my data pulled off, again. The data that I just barely put on that computer, the data from my Asus laptop. When was that, December? Sigh. the bright side is that the hard drive on the Mac is still good.

So what to do? I’m not sure. I guess I’ll be shopping around for another computer. Do any of you have a computer that you love enough to recommend? I don’t know if I should go for a desk top or a laptop? PC or Mac? I’m not having too much luck with laptops. I don’t really need It to be portable.

This picture is curtesy of Jeremys iPad. That’s what I’m typing on. Do your devices have tons of crazy head shots of your kids? I added it just to make this post somewhat interesting. It is proving very difficult to type and edit on so please excuse my errors. I’m assuming its a wordpress issue but it doesn’t like to go back and change things. It’s like the cursor won’t work unless I refresh ss the page. Which means I have to save my draft after ever sentence because I’m making that many errors.

im going to give up now and hit publish. If you don’t hear from me for a few whiles, you’ll know I’m computer shopping or at least saving my pennies so I can go computer shopping. later skater.

    My daughter has a new Toshiba Laptop and loves it!

    It has a large hard drive with RAM to run all her programs including Photoshop,
    InDesign and Illustrator.

    She had one before this one that lasted 7 years and it still was running great when
    she sold it to someone else on EBay. She just wanted a new one…LOL!

    She’s worked for our local newspaper for 14 years and uses PS on it and also freelances
    making menus, etc for local businesses. The color and graphics are great on it!

    Depending where you live…it costs around $700 to $800 and is worth every penny.
    I’m disabled and don’t have money for one yet, but I’m saving towards it because I’m
    not having much luck keeping the one I have running. Photoshop crashes all the time
    when I’m trying to work…ugh!

    Hope you find a good one soon! :-)

    MacBook Air has less computing power and less hard drive space, so I don’t recommend it for most scrappers – especially since portability isn’t important. I LOVE my 13 inch MacBook Pro with an external 22 inch monitor. If I wasn’t concerned with portability, I’d get an iMac. We have a whole Mac scrapping community on FB if you’re interested:
