New computer

  1. My new computer arrived yesterday. It's a dell - dude! I'm thrilled and still a little overwhelmed. I would normally be working today but my son has been throwing up since 0430 so I'm taking advantage of the off time to play with my new toy (between clean-ups.) I have had a computer at work for years but this is the first home model. Any tips? I have a cd burner and a scanner plus the digital camera. No idea how to use the digital camera but I'm reading on it. No printer yet - thought I had one but it's not compatable with this computer. Any thoughts will be welcome.

    Hey y'all...... it's "DOOD"

    Enjoy the new computer! Have fun and take your time getting to know it and all it's features. That's the way I learned, by just sitting down and playing with it.

    Thanks for the replies. Hoping I can figure it all out. This is really different from the one I usually use.

    I got a Dell for Christmas and love it! It's supposed to be for school, but I'm having so much fun going online and scanning pictures and downloading music and emailing and coming to this board...well, you get the picture.

    My boy is still sick. Thought I was out of the woods last night but he woke up this morning and looked just awful. He's one of those kids that you can just look at and know he's sick. Oh well, thank God for sick days and a job where people understand children first! Still playing with new computer...
