New computers bring happiness
February 10, 2011
Who ever said that money can't buy happiness? After battling a recent computer crash, I finally have my new computer up and running. Wow, is it fast!
If these specs mean anything to you, you will know why I am so happy:
- Processor: Intel Core i7 950 3.06 GHz; 4.8 GT/s LGA1366 8MB Cache (dual-quad processor)
- Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth x58 tri-channel DDR3 SATA 6Gb/s + USB 3.0
- Memory: DDR3 12GB 1600MHz
- First hard drive: 1TB (for my programs and data)
- Second hard drive: 2TB (for another backup of my data)
- Windows 7 Professional
- and a bunch of other goodies
In just a couple of hours I fly to Salt Lake City to participate in RootsTech. I hear there are over 2,000 pre-registrants. Fantastic! I've now got my new computer set up with my GoToMyPC account so I will be able to access it from anywhere I have Internet.
Yah, that could make me happy.

When you join a webinar using the phone line, is there a charge?

If the phone number is long distance for you, then that would be the only costs.

You named everything but the BRAND of computer. It it a laptop or desktop? cbkinME

C B - it's a desktop - I had it custom built so it's not an off-the-shelf computer with a name brand.

You don't mention that your Windows 7 is (installed as) the 64-bit version so that you get full use of the 12GB RAM! You _are_ using 64-bit ... ?
