Rest in peace, old Dell computer

I got the word tonight that it would be cheaper to buy a new computer than to fix my old one.  That's the bad news.

Here's the good news:  All the stuff that's on my old computer's hard drive can be transferred to the new one I just ordered from Dell, once I receive it.  And I got a great deal: $400 instantly off, and free shipping.  That special deal is no longer offered on the Dell website, but I had put it in my shopping cart a week or more ago, just in case, and when I ordered it tonight, they let me have the deal!

As I mentioned before, the old desktop is 3 1/2 years old, which is fairly old in computer years.  Especially considering it operates in bad conditions in summer.  Lots of dust and no air conditioning.  And gets heavily used.

So, that's the scoop.

congrats on getting the deal... i have a 1 yr old dell dimension 9100 and so far so good lol...  so good luck with yours too!!  I'm really glad you didn't loose anything from your old machine!!   I back everything i can on cds.  I try to do it about every 6 weeks so i stay fairly current.. so if i crash.. i got it!

I didn't realize that was old in computer years...The ones I use at work are older...hope they don't die anytime soon.  Glad you are getting a new one !
Have fun !  'On Ya' - ma

I thought you got a laptop?  But I remember you saying you were having trouble getting on the internet.  I really enjoy my Dell.
