At least it will keep Carl busy even though Gracie may not get out for its daily walks as
often.

Well I've taken the plunge and ordered a laptop for myself and it will come with Windows 8. The computer I've got now is getting on a bit, it came with Vista but I'll keep using it until it gives up the ghost. I'd been thinking about getting a tablet but looking at the prices for them in my mail order catalogue I thought I might as well get a laptop, OK it's not a top of the range one but it's an Asus with 4 GB of RAM plus the other usual stuff, web cam, WiFi, Bluetooth, Multi DVD drive several ports.
Be back in a bit got to reboot for updates.

I have a OEM machine, it lets me do all things I want to do, so I'm very pleased with it to be honest!

I have Windows 7 though, so Windows 8 may be a different story..

Nothing at all wrong with an Asus! I have one with an i5 650 running at 3.2Ghz. By no means a speed demon, but with 6 GB of RAM, it does all I need it to...

To be honest without going back to look I'm not sure if it's 64 or 32 bit machine, I think it's got an Intel Celeron processor. As I said I was really looking first about getting a tablet so I could use it and still be in forums when I'm in the living room but with the price I thought I might as well just get myself a laptop, at least I can do more with that than a tablet.

We'll just have to wait and see what I think of it when it turns up, I just hope it's not Yodel bringing it or there will be hell to pay.

Who/what is Yodel Joan?

Carl Lawrence, does walking Gracie pay well?

Hi Gary, Yodel is a delivery/courier company here in the UK and they are usually a total nightmare and thought of by many to be one of the worst out there.

I would do some research into what courier they use, before you order anything Joan.

Anyway I have been walking Gracie as usual this morning and also going into Battle to do some shopping.

Also I have opened an case on ebay as that laptop I ordered a few days ago developed a dodgy power button before he posted. Well I said to him yesterday that I wanted a full refund (thought about it over the weekend) and he said that he refuneded me, which he hasn't done. The case will be open until 23/11/12 which I can if I haven't heard anything I can transfer it to the Ebay Customer Service/Support and they will have to make a final discussion.

I see Paul gave you the answer but just to add that so far I've had very bad service from them. The last was getting an order for my grandsons birthday which was on 31st October, I ordered on the 16th should have been delivered on the 17th and it finally arrived a week after his birthday.

Hopefully the retailer will take note that I had already phoned them with a complaint about Yodel when I found out they were changing over to using them, this was earlier in the year after another balls up by them via an Amazon order.
