My laptop is in retirement after being only 4 years old, but in techno ways these days, its time for a new one. I have been trying to rev her up with more memory, but NO, she is being STUBBORN! The GEEK SQUAD even helped me pick out the appropriate memory for my type of computer and she is failing to cooperate! We could really use a new one, but we are holding out until we get closer to our referral. The way things are going, if we purchased another laptop now, it will be in retirement by the time we get our referral! So in the meantime, I am practicing patience....the theme of my life!
