Rock! you are miles ahead of me! I said I was computer illiterate and I meant it! I'll let my son make sense of it tomorrow, he has a screwdriver! :D
Arty Ape, its a Gateway with Windows Vista, wasn't a great investment, but I thought it would last forever!
I have had more than one gateway,they are okay but next time buy a Dell business laptop. For price I prefer the vostro series. You can't go wrong with a lenova business laptop either. If you have limitless money like those Englishmen you could buy one of those laptops named after fruit.
