Thread: Laptop deal question
07-12-2012, 08:48 PM
The problem is the NEW laptop has NO email program on it, she only wants to use Verizon online to handle her email.
The OLD laptop has Outlook Express on it and I had it set to download her email to Outlook and delete the
ONLINE copy of the email. Her Verizon online acct was filling up all the time since she never deletes anything...
The new laptop didn't come with a MS EMAIL program and she doesn't want one.
I can't even move her Contact List over since she never added anyone to it on the OLD pc. Her contact list in OutLook Express is empty.May the FORCE be with you!

Correction, the LapTop does have Live Mail on it...May the FORCE be with you!

OK, now I talked her into letting me turn Live Mail on for the new PC.May the FORCE be with you!

Mine is not here yet.
I'm still using the one that over heats. But I'm very careful with it.
I gave my mom a nice computer, I could walk next door and grab it, but sometimes she can't sleep and wakes up and plays word games on it...and if if she is sleeping, I don't want to wake her up and the cat will want me to feed her.

I know for a fact it's a great computer and a great deal! I ended up buying the same computer off of eBay. I earned $8 in eBay bucks!
My mother stopped by and had her eyes on it and likes the raised keyboard letters. Her hands are bad and it's easier for her to type with the raised keys. I guess things like that happen when you are 71 years old.
Once I get my Toshiba's LED fixed, this will be going to my mom.
Her computer has been overheating and shutting off. It's about 3 1/2 years old...when she was sick and could not get out of bed, she used it often for computer games, skype, etc...I doubt she ever turned it off.

My Hp been running for 6 months. Do a soft reboot occasionally. Shut it off maybe twice in the past 6 months, just sits quietly atop my computer hutch.The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.
It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

Not all models of new HP laptops are bad but there are several higher end with video cards that are not integrated that are having serious heat problems just like there are several Dell laptops I wouldn't buy now.
Right now you have to be very careful buying any notebook and I would recommend thoroughly researching any model of any brand before purchasing.
Here is a good place to start.

Yes. It helps. But still eventually still shuts down. I bought a more expensive cool pad also.
The old HP a block of ice could not keep that thing cool...it gets REALLY HOT quickly...
