Nabby, I only got fiber optic about 3 years ago. Til then I was on dial up! So 
my computer seems very fast to me now even though it's running Vista. I've had 
the computer about 7 years. It's an HP Pavillion that my SO chose. He used it 
for about a year along side his own computer, to build his website. It's got a 
wide screen that's ok for watching movies, yet it's not too heavy for 
traveling. Really the only problems I have are with yahoo changing stuff 
without any warning. Personally I think it's a plot by the Illuminati to keep 
us all bonkers (-:

This is how Microsoft use their muscles in Europe, I don't know about across 
the water where they developed this nonsense. Even here you could get WIN7 on a 
new PC if you buy an outgoing model.

I currently have Vista which I've gotten used to and really don't know enough 
to be unhappy with! But I've read what you guys say about it. Anyway, this 
computer is 7 years old and I just hope it holds out for a while longer though 
I've been told that's usually the time to upgrade.

When you know how it works and the speed is OK why not hold on to it. I also 
have a 1o year old laptop which works fine, as long as I have the time to let 
it think things over :-)
