Dude, You’re Getting A Dell!

Actually, I’m not a dude, and I already bought my Dell. Yesterday. At Costco. Now I can type my blog posts once, not twice as I did when I had no Internet access on my old computer—I was having to compose the posts in Documents and then type them into my phone. As you can imagine, that was quite a process, and more than once I nearly gave up because it was such a gold-plated pain in the ass.

But sweet are the uses of a little extra money, and thankfully I got five months’ worth of Social Security payments all at once so I had the cash to buy a new computer. It’s my very first laptop and I’m thrilled with it—it’s got all the bells and whistles I could have asked for and more besides. It’s not top of the line but I don’t need that; I just wanted a more portable computer that didn’t take up the entire desk when I set it down AND worked with my landlady’s wireless service. Which it does beautifully.

So if you don’t mind, I think I’m going to learn a little more about this marvelous piece of technology before I get back to posting my usual wit and wisdom. I’ve got a few bugs to work out in the user . See you soon!

I'm a retired registered nurse and writer who also happens to be street-rat crazy, if the DSM-IV.....oops, 5---is to be believed. I was diagnosed with bipolar I disorder at the age of 55, and am still sorting through the ashes of the flaming garbage pile that my life had become. Here, I'll share the lumps and bumps of a late-life journey toward sanity.... along with some rants, gripes, sour grapes and good old-fashioned whining from time to time. It's not easy being bipolar in a unipolar world; let's figure it out together.

  1. It will be such a joy reading your blog posts more often! so happy for you!

    so hey, I am looking for a lower end laptop that will work with wireless, you think that is a good way to go?

    What kind of jack is there for the power? The Dell I had before became unusable when the jack hole (no comments! don’t know what else to call it! haha) inside the computer loosened up 😦 Hopefully they fixed that. If not you need to be extra sure you back up whatever you would like to save.

    1. I like it. It was $600 at Costco, but I also bought an extended warranty that covers any and all damages for three years. Even drops and spills. I highly recommend the extra protection….. I had one on my car and paid all of $75 for a new engine when the original died. 🙂
