Update

New screens for laptops can be verrrrrry expensive, turns out you can get a new laptop for $10 less than a new screen (or a really spiffy one for a few hundred more!)

Will update this blog quick smart, as soon as I play with this fun new thing and get the photographs of the garden transfered. Thanks everyone for the kind words while I was whinging about my lack of usable computers. Pretty tomato pics on their way ...

Prue~~ Are you using Windows 7? I'm interested in whether this version will be more user friendly. Not that I'm shopping for a new computer. It takes money to do that. :)

hi Grace - unfortunately it is Vista, with a windows 7 upgrade when it is available here in Oz. It is a great laptop, a toshiba with more things than I could want but gosh darn it is taking me a long time to get used to stupid windows vista! My bank account is currently crying, but as a postgrad who lives on this thing it is a bit of a necessity (mixed with a tiny bit of a splurge)
