Just an FYI...and a little spur of the moment CONTEST ;)...

Hi everyone!

Jess here w/ a quick message and note of thanks for all of you guys!

I want to let you all know that between Marie moving and my computer woes, things are a little slow-going at the Farm and we apologize for any delay in returning emails, sending prizes, etc.  I got a new computer over our tax-free weekend and am in the midst of setting that up and recovering what is left of my uncorrupted pictures and music and also have to transfer all my 'schtuff' over from my expansion drive :)  

So, even though things have been rough there is a light at the end of this crazy tunnel!  Thanks again for your patience and support and please know that if you are waiting on a prize or return email we are getting there!! THANK YOU!

To show our SINCERE appreciation for you guys bearing with us for just a few more days here, I figured, well, TGF is TWO years old so let's give away TWO digis today!

I will give a digi of CHOICE to TWO LUCKY COMMENTERS today...all you gotta do is tell me what kind of computer you have and how much you love it or hate it, LOL!   I feel like it's all I've talked about the past few days so I'd love to hear from YOU!

You have until 11:59pm CST tonight to leave your comments and I'll draw two random winners in the morning!

THANK YOU ALL AGAIN for your patience, support, and friendship!

xoxo
Jess and Marie :)

I have an HP. It's a fairly new one and I love it. Has just what I need and none of what I don't! :D

Zarah said...

LOL! I have a Dell and I actually kinda like it! I admit, it sometimes drives me nuts, but that's mostly my own fault. I wish it had mor RAM tho, and one of these days I'm gonna get more... One of these days. Any day now... ;)

Janet said...

I have an HP. Had it a couple of years now and haven't had any problems so far. Knock on wood.

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline. I like it because it works, unlike out last computer. I am not very computer friendly, so there are certainly days when I am threatning to throw it out of our second story window.

~*Joni said...

Hi girls!! I am so happy there's a light at the end of your tunnels - and to think, a new home and a new computer make it all the worthwhile!
DH sweetly bought us matching laptops for Christmas. I have a pink Dell that I love.

AShu93 said...

We have a Toshiba laptop with a really big screen. I love that, but the touchpad mouse drives me crazy - always clicking when I don't want it to.

Diane Davies said...

I have a Dell and we have what I would call a love/hate relationship. When it's working well and fast, I love it. When it shuts down for what seems to be no reason, I hate it. ; )

chocolatecoveredkatie.com said...

I have an HP. I love the bright screen, which is great for Photoshop :) :).

Wow, looking at the other comments, it seems a LOT of us have HPs :).

Lauretta See said...

congrats on your new buy ;) hope it works good for ya.. I am on a DELL XPS machine... it is big and expensive.. my man needs this because he works atocad and solid work on it.. etc.. So i am a lucky gal ;)i love it!

hugs xx

Marcy said...

My HP laptop (only 2 years old) fried last week. I am really disappointed as it was really expensive. Now I bought a new Dell laptop. So far it's super fast, so I love it. I am hoping it lasts!

Pryn said...

I have an HP desktop and a Gateway laptop. I love my HP and the Gateway is not bad either. I wish it was also an HP though. Both are getting old and I think are on the way to the computer graveyard :( I didn't know about the tax free weekend! Maybe I can get another year out them and catch it in 2011...wishful thinking there ;)

Hope you are all having a fabulous Monday!!!! Sending you beginning of the week hugs!!!

Donna said...

I have a Dell and I hate it. We have had nothing but problems with it and the extra warranty that we paid for doesn't cover the problems that we are having. I think it does, but they don't. I will never buy a Dell again.

Lelia Pierce said...

I have a Dell with upgraded RAM...no issues at all. It's even an older guy that we got refurbished. Now that's a deal! :O)

Lorraine said...

hi well i just have an ACER and so far it has been very good to me but i have only had it since August last year and its my very first one so fingers crossed its still my friend and thankyou so much for the chance of winning thats a great prize for the winners xx

Jamie N. said...

Ooh bummer about the computer woes. We've got a XPS b/c our last computer unexpectedly died on us. So I totally sympathize b/c it really really sucks. But I've got no complaints w/ the XPS.

Lesley said...

I have an old Toshiba that I *hate*. It was prone to overheating (apparently a "known" problem with the brand, although not to me when I bought it :) ). I've since bought a laptop fan - but isn't the purpose of a laptop the convenience and small size? Anyways, I'm going to read everyone's responses because I definitely would like something NEW!

craft-princess said...

I have a Dell Studo Desktop with a BIG flatscreen and I love how quick it is BUT it can be a tad noisy when the fan kicks on!

Thanks for a chance to win!

Jessica said...

I have a compaq laptop. it's pretty good, does what I need it to do, so I like it. :)

Wilfreda said...

My computer is custom built. It was great when it was new. It is getting old now, so I need to get an upgrade.

kat9 said...

WOW you have been busy. I work all day on a Mac...and have a Toshiba PC Laptop at home. I personally LOVE the make. Just my preference and understanding of it.

Thanks for 2 chances to win today!

Jennifer Roach said...

My hubby is a computer geek and we have sooooo many computers in our house that I don't know if if there is room to type them all out. *My* computers are an old Dell laptop and a custom built one in my scrap room. Thanks for the giveaway :)

Meg said...

I have a MacBook Pro and I love it! It never crashes and it comes with great basic software. If you're an iPod, iPhone or iPad user it makes interfacing with those things very easy.

Sara said...

So sorry about all of your problems with the computer-those are the worst!!! I have an ASUS, I got it last december, and LOVE it!!!! The best laptop I've had, and this is the 3rd one!

Mariska said...

That answer is kind of hard for me since we have so many computers in the house and non are simple to call a brand of. My hubby has his own small company in the IT world and he builds the computers in our house with separate components, so a motherboard from Asus with a soundcard from Creative soundblasters etc. etc. Next to the windows machines as described we do have an Apple laptop and I have an Apple iPad and I LOVE Apple :).

Thebug415 said...

We have an Acer. I really like it. I also have an Acer Netbook too.

Isabelle said...

we have many computers in our house, mostly PCs but last year i finally got a MAC desktop and i LOVE it!!!!!

Helen said...

for Christmas I got a new E-machine laptop and I LOVE it because I can take it anywhere with me!

JoAnne said...

We have a Dell and we do love it. The REAL secret to your computer being reliable and working well for you is to have a geek in your corner. We found a local gal that comes about every 5 or 6 months and she tunes us up. Makes sure we have the most up to date anti virus, anti worm etc (all free versions), compresses our hard drive, cleans things up, etc.

Costs us about $35 each time and saves us hassles. This computer is almost 5 years old! Runs great and it is used for hours every day.

Good luck!!!

Erin said...

I have a ancient relic that is on it's last leg. The hamster that turns the wheel inside has grey hair and wants to retire. I really hate it but have to ride it out until the end.

Mette said...

My computer is custom made by a friend who is a wizz with PCs. He's made it to my specific requirements. Need lots of space for digis, photoes, WWW, my teenage sons favorite game World of Warcraft.
As you can see my PC is in constant use and couldn't live without it.

Thank you for a chance to win.
Hugs

Kristen said...

I have a Dell Laptop and I couldn't live without it!

Cassie_lu said...

My computer is a Dell and is a couple of years old and still going strong :)

jan farnworth said...

i have a dell laptop and it has quit on me once but it has lasted me a long time and it stars reliable most of the time. I have lots of fun using it with my cricut and i take it to my friends to scrap all the time.

Mocha-Latte Crafts said...

I feel your pain when it comes to computer problems, but I have now got an HP laptop and so far, so good. Thanks for letting us know how things are going and a chance to win. Good luck, Tanya R.

Mary J said...

Hello! I have two laptops - an IBM ThinkPad X200s that I use for work (it's light and portable so great for all those business trips)and a Samsung X20 which has a nice large screen for all my blogging and photo editing!

Both are reliable so have no gripes - that's probably the best thing you can say about a PC!!!

Thistleblue said...

I have a snazzy Dell Inspiron 1720 wide screen laptop. It's got a fancy graphics card (or was fancy when i got it about a yr and a half ago) for gaming but once we had our daughter I didn't have enough time for everything so the gaming had to go :-( ... any spare time I have is for crafting now!

Alyssa S said...

I have an HP Media something, something, something. I love it!

KanataNewf said...

Oh dear - this will show how much of a geek house I live in - there are only two of us but there are 6 personal laptops, one desktop and one server. I usually use my 2 year old Dell Inspiron 1525 - running Vista! So far I have resisted dearly beloved's attempts to switch me to a dual boot with Linux....but may soon cave! Overall, it meets my needs... blog surfing, social networking and email and that's good enough for me!

judy said...

I have 2 IBM desk top, i love them. My husband special ordered them for me since i do graphics i need a system. I have no problems with them.

April said...

Our big old PC is an HP....no problems with it at all, except it is getting old. Our laptop is from Lenova (IBM). We have had it since March and love it. It isn't exactly light, but can take whatever that family puts it through!

Nat said...

Oh, sorry about the chaos! I have a Frankenstein computer! My husband builds them, so there are parts of this and parts of that...an upgrade here and there...kind of outdated now, but it does the trick! I love my widescreen monitor though!

Autumn said...

Sorry about your computer problems, I know how that can suck. I have an HP and it's pretty good, but we got hit with a virus and it hasn't been the same since. Previously had a sony and it was great, but I'm looking into a MAC next to help with my photography.Hope it all works out for you!

Danderella said...

I have an IBM Lenovo...and right now I love it. But, I also have a Compaq netbook and for just surfing the net and reading I love it...but for working or posting it is just awful. Hope your computer woes are over soon.

Sheri (a.k.a PaperCrafty) said...

I have a Toshiba. It's brand new and I love it!!

Kim Y. said...

Hmmm...I don't knw what I have! :( My hubby put my computer together so the LOVE brand? LOL My computer usually doesn't give me any problems but I think it needs to be re-image though...

Hope things ar back up for you girls soon!

Caz said...

We have a Dell Desktop...of but three years old now and feels slow.

A Dell Laptop (for my work) about 2 years old and a workhorse rather than anything fab and pretty.

A Sony Vaio - Three years old, expensive, shiny 19" screen....was top of the line and cost a fortune, and I use it barely once a month now I am moved back in my craftroom near my desktop....lol

Hugs
Caz

Nancy said...

We have a no-name reconstructed PC, and it is probably on its last legs...but we're hanging on. I'm holding out for a MAC, baby!!

Hang in there with all of the changes and breathe!

Chelsea said...

I have a gateway and aside from Best Buy jacking up the battery so it has to be plugged in 24/7 I love it!

Sugar said...

I have a Dell laptop and a Hp desktop and another Dell Laptop. I love them all! My dell is new and purple!

Tammy said...

I have an HP laptop that is a year old and I absolutely LOVE it!! Glad your working on getting things back to normal.

HazelQ said...

I have a laptop DELL that is really old, I got it like 4 years ago so I don't like it that much now lol I'm such a computer geek that my dream is to have an iMac one day :P
Thank you for the chance to win.
Hugs
Hazel

Kerry said...

I have switch to the dark side... I used to have a DELL, didn't mind it.. But I wanted a desktop, then brought an iMac and I LOVEEEEE it!!! Let's say I love it sooooo much, I brought myself a MacBook within 2 months. :D

I love everything Mac... Hehe!!! No, they are not paying me to say that. :D

PeeJay said...

I've got a Toshiba laptop after an HP one went wrong after just 3 months. Took another 3 months of diabolical customer service from HP for the retailer to give me a brand new one. I chose the Toshiba instead. No confidence in HP after that experience. Tosh is fine and is still going strong a year later ....

Joy said...

I have a dell and I hate it (I think I hate computers in general b/c I work on one all day in the office). The only thing that gets me by is that I am married to a computer geek, so he updates it, cleans it, and takes care of everything for me!

Katie-Louise Oakley said...

I have an Acer Laptop, and I wouldnt be without it! I have had numerous laptops and this one is the best so far (And its never over heated!) xx

AnnikaS said...

Congrats on your new computer! It takes some time to make it "your own" and get used to the new one.

I have a fujitsu siemens and I like it, but when something will not work I hate it :-D

Marsha said...

I have a Compaq Notebook (for my scrapping room) and a self-built computer with LG parts :-D Haven't had any problems with both but the Notebook is definetly my favourite because I can use it for my Cricut and for scrapping inspiration ;-)

Hope your computer problems are over now :-D

Marsha

Caroline said...

I have an Acer. It does everything that I want it to do, so I love it!!! LOL :)

Michelle said...

I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. It's a hand-me-down from my husband that got himself a Fujitsu Netbook. I LOVE my laptop!

Tammy D said...

I've got an HP laptop. I love it most of the time. I need to do some housecleaning on it.

jigglymills said...

I have a Gateway M-seiers that is the worst computer laptop I have ever had. The volume doesn't stay on and then all of a sudden it is full blast. Screen saver doesn't work, etc. My husband has a Dell he 'built' and loves it. :)

Jac said...

I am lovin' my Samsung NC10 netpad, its been named Samson as it is small and mighty! It goes with me everywhere I need it to and I got an additional external hard drive too so that I can store loads of my stuff with out having to worry about clogging up the memory of Samson, its also a great way of backing up my work! xx

mamma0709 said...

I have an Acer, laptop. Mine is just about 5 month old. I just love it and I have what I need in it =)

djones said...

I have a Dell Studio laptop. I love it. It's pink...so I don't worry about my hubby walking off with it. LOL!

Jenny V. said...

Well I love my computer, my hubby had build and customize my computer. So when I have any problem I just ask him and he will fix it. But however I hate my toshiba laptop. It's harder for him to fix laptop depending on the situation.

JenRaff said...

We have a Dell -- I don't do a lot on the computer so I like it just fine. Our connection on the other hand . . . I would like to find another company!

Brenda Lee said...

I have a Dell and I love it, but it's not without its flaws (minor, so far)....I don't think there's a computer out there that doesn't have ANY problems!! If so...I'd sure be interested. LOL

Fay said...

I have an HP desktop, which is by far the best desktop I've ever had (and I've gone through many!). I also have a Sony laptop which is great because it has a quick weblaunch button (so I don't need to power up my laptop first) and a Toshiba netbook for traveling.

Vannessa said...

I have a Toshiba Satelitte Pro laptop and I LOVE it! This is the 3rd Toshiba one I've had and would highly recommend them as they really are extremely good laptops. I upgraded the memory on this one (this is the main reason I usually replace mine every 3-4 years)so it now has a 4GB hard drive and should last me a while this time, but it's soon being filled up with card photos and templates and everything else LOL

BJ said...

I have a laptop that I used to love before it died...now I use my hubby's compaq until Oct when they start putting all the year end models on sale so I can get a new comp.

Sue D said...

I have a Dell laptop that was previously my husband's before he upgraded. In general I have been pleased with it (it is much faster than the one I had before)but lately it has been acting quirky--it even shut itself off right in the middle of me typing this comment!

Stefanie said...

I have an HP Pavilion laptop which I LOVE!!!!!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!
Yep, I love it! :-)

Maylee said...

I have an HP laptop and love it!

Princessliyah said...

Hello- I have a Fujitsu Lifebook that I use daily at work. Somedays go better than others. Today is a good day.

Ruth said...

I have a custom computer my Man put toghether for me. The best part is that whenever I have a reason to hate it a little bit, I just call out, and he fixes it for me! :)

Pöydän kulmalla näpertelijä said...

I have an Acer that has already let me down once and still I haven't learned to take back-ups.

Michelle said...

I have a Dell, with Windows 7 and I love it!
Thanks for the chance at winning!

DoodleDee Designs said...

What a fun contest!!! I have a Toshiba Laptop. I have had it for about 3 years and I LOVE IT. It's got an awesome about of RAM. It's super fast (still to this day) and it has never given me problems.

Glad your nearing the end of the computer nightmare on your end!

momsydr said...

I have an HP......its great most of the time but every now and then it acts up and could just throw it out the window...its a love hate relationship :-)....

Lynda Nielsen said...

Oh what a fun contest. Sorry about all your computer troubles you have been having. I can relate. I have had my fair share of those issues. Lucky for me my husband buys parts (new parts) and builds our computers. So I call my computer brand "Butch Built". I've had mine for about 4 years and still problem free. Knock on wood. Lol
Thanks for the chance to win.
Hugs
Lynda

1LuvnMama said...

I have a Mac desktop and luv it! Also, have a Netbook for accessing the internet and doing simple things. Luv it too 'cause it's small and transportable! :)

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop and I love it. I am an IT Manager and so spend all day on a computer but when I come home, I love to fire my little baby and have a look at all the gorgeous cards and scrapbook layouts that everyone makes. My hubby thinks that my laptop is attached to me as wherever I am, it is sure to be with me!
Hope you get yours all back up and working again soon!

JenniferOSteen said...

Macbook pro...It is delicious!

Gwen's Busy Little Hands said...

I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC. I love the beautiful screen images, the colors are so vivid and accurate. I've got plenty of ports for all my USB needs. A DVD Burner which comes in handy. Great sound, so many cool extras that came along with it too. One of my favorite things is my full size keyboard. I could have gone smaller but I missed being able to use a 10 key calculator for entering numbers, etc. Love this one! I've had IBM and Dell in the past...this is my hands down favorite!

Smiles!
Gwen

I have an HP and love it! Hope your computer woes are resolved soon!

Javablustamper said...

So sorry you are having computer issues Jess!! I hope everything gets back to normal, or as normal as it can be, soon!! I have a Sony Vaio laptop! So, far SO good!! I like it better than my last laptop, because it is faster AND the best part is, it is ALL mine!! Haha! Congrats to Marie on her new home! Have an AWESOME day all!!



ENJOY LIFE!

margosha said...

And I have a Mac Book Pro. I love it! It's so smart! :)

Cheryl said...

I have a Dell Inspiron and I love it. I had to get Windows 7 with it and I have to say I am not happy with that OS. The search function has an issue with it (you can find articles about it all over the web) and basically it is making it hard for me to keep track/find my digi stamps.

Trouble said...

I have a packard Bell and like all good PC's I love it loads when it works and completely HATE it when it doesn't!

Luv Jane XX

MischievousFox said...

We've got Macs! Love them... no problems in years since we've gone to macs. We did have PCs for awhile, but the constant problems and loss of info was too much!! I can't tell you how many times our pc's crashed!! Yikes! Never had any crashes on our Macs in 5+ years!!!!!

Erica said...

I have an HP laptop and it is great. I have had it for almost a year and it has been great for me.

Tina said...

My desktop and laptop both are HP. I've always owned HP and haven't had problems. I love them :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Deirdre said...

Dell Inspiron 531... I also have the all important external hard drive!!!!! and CA security software and it all works a treat.... I love my PC but mainly coz of the cool packages I have on it like photoshop!

Sonya said...

I have an HP laptop and I LOVE IT!!  Before we got the laptop 1 year ago we had e-machine desktop models and they were great too.  Guess I've been really lucky when it comes to computers.  We have had our problems with crashes when we had a teen in the house but I always back-up so I lever lost anything, yeah!

Marnie - Queen of the Marniverse said...

I have an Acer laptop - best investment I ever made. Don't know why I waited so long to switch from desktop to laptop. Don't think I'll ever go back.

Melissa said...

I have a Gateway laptop. It's the second one I've had. The first one served me well, so I bought another. I just wish the letters wouldn't scratch off of the keys!

Erin said...

I'm a Mac girl all the way! I was unlucky enough to have my desktop crash a few months ago, and lucky enough to have replaced it with a brand new MacBook Pro laptop, and Mac desktop- it soo beautiful!

Colleen said...

I am so sorry to hear about what you have been going through with your computer.
I have an HP desktop and a Dell laptop. I like my Dell laptop much better because it is much faster and I am able to use it while I am watching TV. Thanks for a chance to win some images.

Natasha said...

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop - I love it! Have had it for about a year and a half and it has never failed me yet!

Thank you for the lovely spur-of-the moment quiz, it's so kind!

Leanne said...

At work I have Dell computer and it rocks. At home I have an HP laptop and the only bad thing about it is the internet connection. Otherwise I love it. Hope your computer woes get solved. Thanks for always making us happy!! HUGS!!

boom said...

i have a macbook pro and i absolutely love it!!! i love it so much that i named him skeeter!! LOL!! :D

Jacilynn said...

I have a HP. I got a great deal on Black Friday on it. Love it.

Kimberly S said...

I have an HP that I love! I had Dell's before this, every one we chose was a lemon from day one. Also have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that's a few years old and still awesome. Good luck with your new pc! :)

Molly Joly said...

I have an Acer netbook that I love for travel!

Annette said...

i have a sony viao.....love it, and love it!!! it's also PINK!

Jodi said...

2 HP desktops and a Gateway laptop ~ one of the HP's is newer and I like it for the most part but not sure I like the Vista on it. I never had a problem networking my computers until I brought Vista into the mix. So last year I had Best Buy come out to do it and it worked fine until recently. I have no clue what happened but now they are no longer networked and no matter what I try to do it doesn't work.....

Christine said...

I have a Dell and pretty much like it but....it runs on Windows (something named--the last name instead of number). I've since learned that you need to wait until the next numbered version comes out because the named versions are the beta versions. Let's send this out to unsuspecting consumers so they can do our testing. I had a full month of problems recently. Every time I would let my laptop set open for more than 60 seconds (literally), it would freeze up. That was so frustrating. They finally sent out a new update that fixed the problem.

Long story for the moral--always buy a windows version with a number on the end!!!

Marie said...

I have an HP desktop and LOVE it! I use it for school and hubs uses it for work. No probs.

Wendalyn said...

Dell - Alienware Desktop. I love mine.

Heidi Brawley said...

I use an E machine lap top and it has been awesome!!!!

Sharon said...

I have a Mac computer and love it! We have not had any issues with it at all (knock on wood!). It has some great features (My kids love i photo and i movie!)

Crafty Jenn said...

Sorry things have been so hectic for you both.

I have an HP Pavilion laptop. It's 4 years old, and showing it! Lol! It's been good to me, but I've learned what all I really need from a computer.

lori said...

I have a 2 year old Mac - which served me fine going through school but now I have it packed with so much stamping stuff and ideas - I think maybe it will explode someday! I would love a new and faster computer. Just dreaming....gotta get a job first!
Thanks for the chance to win a digi!

Bizzi Hands said...

I have a home made one.. Yes my DH loves to tinker and he decided to create a computer for me! My only request was.. It had to have a pink or purple case - with the LED lights.. and perhaps a matching keyboard and mouse.. Ah ha. you say.. Well, he managed to find a pink case (baby pink) and a matching keyboard and mouse! Although it has been a bit unreliable - a bit like having a mechanic as a DH.. He has finally fixed the bugs and its working a treat! I know you are all jealous, especially when he was playing on it over the weekend and said "its faster than mine" lol...

Kim Etherington said...

I have a home made desktop that is in need of another update. I think I'll be upgrading to a whole new laptop... A Dell like the rest husband and kids have. Theirs have been great for them! Hope you find much happiness with your new computer.

Rachel Hope said...

I have a Dell Laptop that I have had for 6 years...I have had to fix a few issues, but overall LOVE it and can't believe it is still kicking!

Lilian said...

Congratulations on your Anniversary and thank you for the chance to win 2 digis!

Love love love my MAC :)

Tina said...

Mine is custom built for the nerdette in me! :D I am a graphic artist and I also am a gamer so it was a must to have a kick butt machine!

Tanya said...

I have a dell for a desktop which does the job but aggravates me to no end. For our laptop, we just bought an Apple and I love it!!! The photo editing software that came with it is pretty cool and there is so much to do with it.

faithnme said...

hope its not too long before u r up and running with ur computer.. I have a "gateway" M-series.. had it for about 2 yrs I like it.. but I think I need a new battery.

Marianne - Fiskateer #6701 said...

Wow! What a good time for me to see your message! I have been on the Consumer Reports site looking at laptops. I think mine is just about done! It is a Dell Inspirion that was actually given to me by my neighbor who was going to throw it away because she was so frustrated with all of the issues! That was over two years ago. I have nursed it along...have formatted the hard drive twice and reinstalled Windows Vista. I have an HP desk top that has been great and reliable for over five years that I also still use for all of my bills and important documents.

It was interesting to see two people with the same computer who feel completely different about them! Congratulations on your new purchase! Thank you for doing your spur of the moment contest!

Christina S said...

Congrats on your 2-year anniversary! I have an HP Pavilion laptop, it's about 4 years old. I'm looking to upgrade to a desktop that has 1T hard drive so I can do more digital scrapbooking! I love it because it's lasted 4 years! Thanks for doing this!

Yeah for being two!!! I hope the woes lately are not part of the "terrible twos." I NOW have a Dell laptop that I recently got from Walmart and it's red! Bold and makes a statement like I do. I still have my desktop dell from college that is basically for holding all my music and my downloads so my new one won't get screwed up! Hope trouble free times are ahead!

I have a Mac and my new baby is a Macbook Pro, and I just love it! We have had Macs for the last 10 years and I will only ever get them again. They are so easy to use and we never have any problems with them and I am not very Tech savy!!

MacBooK all the way....you won't be sorry....I have had for about 5 years now

I have a Dell. Well, 2 of them. Laptop and desktop. I mostly like them, though I miss my old keyboard. I like that they're fast and both have really big screens.

Sometimes I miss my old ibook, though.

So sorry to hear about your computer woes. I have an Alienware computer and it ROCKS!!! It is about 2 years old and it still chugs right along.

I have a generic "eMachines" from Wal-Mart. I'd get another one if I could find it - it's lasted so much longer than any of my others. However, I think computers are a gamble no matter which company or band you get. Good luck with yours and remember to make lots of backups! :-d

I have a HP laptop. It is the best as I can stay out here in the lounge and keep an eye on my kids.

I have a Compaq Presario. It's about 4 years old and is still hanging in there. I like it but I am excited to upgrade to something new. Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Yeaa, I have a Dell laptop! I do love it, have had it for 3yrs now, with NO problems! My daughter has an HP slimline desktop. She loves it, no problems so far, only had that since Feb of this year:)

I have an HP. It is newish and I am that high tech of a person, so it works great for me. I love, love my printer though. All I have to do is put in my memory card from my camera and I can do anything with the pictures. Simple, which is what I like. Hope things are settling down for both of you. Hugs, Lisa G

I have an Acer laptop and i'm not impressed lately. I have had it for 3 years and until recently has shut itself down every time you want to browse blogs....but hopefully that has stopped with many upgrades being put on it. My old PC was a HP and that was great.

Yvonne said...

I have a Dell Inspiron. The computer itself is fine, but Windows Vista keeps me on my toes.

I have a MacBook and it is small and I can take it anywhere and keep up with your blog and it does everything but bark, of course I am still paying it off because it was expensive and we are in ministry so that doesn't allow for a lot of spending. But I love the way it saves digis etc. Thank you for your e-mails they brighten my day. Hugs Cathy(Mercieschild)
