Today my two year old Sony Vaio laptop died. The hard drive is done, taking everything with it. This includes upwards of 10,000 pictures that were not backed up. Thankfully I have most of the best photographs on flickr but that only accounts for maybe 20%. With the repair cost being close to 50% of the original cost of the laptop there is not much sense in fixing it either. ERG!
I'm done with pc's and will be upgrading to a iMac or MacBook. I will also be adding an external hard drive so I can backup, live and learn! For the interim I have set up our old HP desktop computer, circa 2002. It is running windows XP which surprisingly runs better then crappy Vista. I am happy the old computer is still around or I would be computer-less for a month or two. Life isn't the same without a computer...
Any Mac users out there with feedback?
