Yesterday, Laura’s new computer arrived. She now has the fastest computer in the house. It’s quite nice. Now, I have to spend a little time to get the thing up and running properly and set up just like she likes it.
This new system will run the latest versions of her favorite video/photo editing software without even breaking a sweat. For you nerds: she’s got an HP m7790e with an AMD Athlon X2 5600+ 2.8GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, a 250GB HDD and lots of bells and whistles. So far all is good except for two things: 1) they didn’t provide any “backup” media – no install disks and such; 2) they installed 32-bit Vista on the 64-bit computer. Weird. I guess we’ll live with it for now. Better program compatibility.
Back to work setting it up… 🙂
