    I would recommend getting a docking station with the laptop. It will keep your desk cleaner, give you more power (larger charger) and more ports. The newer laptops don't have all the connection points that they used to so a dock is an easy solution.

    I donít know all too much about laptops - but I remember back in the day docks were available for most. In my travels the past week or so I have never seen a dock mentioned or available.

    I would certainly buy and use one for my usage. Iíve been looking at Dellís Inspiron line - not a dock in sight.

    As Diane suggested I will start a thread in the computer section. Have some ideas on how to move forward but could use some insight from those who know a lot more than I do.

    I'm pretty sure that this one came from someone who doesn't have to stoop at all to be at that level....

    I debated 2 months or so between a desktop or laptop to replace my old desktop.

    Finally went with a laptop, absolutely no regrets for I guess 5 years now.

    Thanks - that gives me some confidence in going that way.

    It's just different - you know how we don't like change being old(er) and all.....I HATE any kind of change.....

    But - I may need to get with the times a bit. I have in the back of my mind a few years back when I could hardly move. The time may very well come again where I can't do the stairs (my computer room is upstairs). In the case I am restricted to the first floor I would be without my desktop.

    Found a laptop that I would be very happy with but it's called a "gaming laptop". I've never played a game in my life but I like the specs of the machine. But it's $800.......

    I've used laptops at home exclusively since about 2002. I generally buy a new one every 5 years, I wouldn't blink at that price when you think about how long you're likely to have it and how much more stuff you can get done on one vs. a tablet or a phone.

    At present I feel I have the best of both worlds with a desktop and iPad. I do use the iPad most of the time however.

    Iím just balking I guess - I have been in the upgrade camp every 4-5 years myself. I am on year 6 right now with the current desktop. That is why I hesitate to put $150 into it right now - would likely be better off to put that $150 toward a laptop that I want. I am not compromising this time either.

    I love my lap top it sits by my chair and I can just pick it up and go on line anytime. I used to use a desk top big one and it sucked like going to work sitting up strait and my arms cramping up. Now I can eat dinner, be on line, watch the news at the same time while talking to the wife in the living room. Best of all worlds.

    Now I need a new one way to slow, keys have the letters wore off all over it. It was like $250.00 on sale but it has served it due and needs cut up and burned in my shop. No way my screwed up hands can type on one of those little phones and hold it at the same time. My thumbs would cramp up using them that way. My pointer fingers don't point so well so I use the next ones and hold the still with my thumbs to type. I miss letters and need to correct a bunch of stuff when done after I look back at the scream. I am old school and old, not real old about to turn 68 and just wearing out more.

    Good evening all.

    Company picnic went pretty good, lots of good food, a dunk tank that we used to sink the owner, the CEO and two of our division presidents. Someone brought a lot of squirt guns so they went to good use.
    Met momma at her work on the way home, had dinner and now here I am, they went to give a very nice older lady who lives by herself some homemade jam and visit with her for awhile. They do this every few months and the lady absolutely loves the company and adores both my wife and Emma.

    OC, flyweight, LGM be safe and try to stay afloat.

    Oh, real nice trailer Oxpath

    Yup, that was the biggest hang up for me, plus my old desktop had a full height tower case, lots of room to fiddle around
    with things.

    Pushed that old Gateway desktop (400 MHZ if I remember correct) 12 - 13 years.
