Pat said...

Savannah: # 1 son tried to persuade me to have a laptop but I need a station- it's my security blanket.
Thank you - it's good to have good news.xoxox

Granny Annie said...

Yes she is lovely. What is her name? I am sooooooo jealous!

Scarlet Blue said...

You look like you have the same screen as me!
Sx

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

Oh Indeed---She Is BEAUTIFUL!!! And that screen is so wonderfully BIG!!! Congrats, my dear.
I'm still back with the 'moniter', and I like it a lot...But I must say, the size of that screen is most appealing.

The best reveal of getting a new computer is realizing how slow your old computer was.

Pat said...

Granny Annie: no name as yet. I tend to call them my puter. It's not all beer and skittles - it took me all morning to discover how to publish the photo.

Scarlet: I'm slightly techier now and call the screen the monitor. It is Lenova like the puter. The background is from my Exmoor pictures. I had to buy the speakers separately because they forego to tell me it didn't have them built in. But the sound now is divine.

R. Sherman said...

Great looking set-up! Have fun with it.

Cheers.

Pat said...

Naomi: maybe the picture is misleading. I don't think it is especially big - big enough for me.

UB: so true. Some Blogs with lots of stuff on the home page used to take forever to reach the comment box. Vast improvement now.
The mouse was over exciteable and a bit uncontrollable but ~Tim has given it some sedative and it's fine now:)

Pat said...

Randall: glad you like it:)

john.g. said...

Very smart, Mum2!

Pat said...

John: :)

lom said...

sure is

Kim Ayres said...

Looks good - like the large screen!

Good to see the speakers too - you can now check out the animation thing on my blog from a couple of posts ago :)

Rog said...

Surely a computer is male not a "she"?

It has a mind of its own and can be temperamental but is quite useful about the house (although not capable of washing and ironing)

My case rests...

Pat said...

Kim: what's this large screen? Have you all got lap tops?
enjouyed the animation:)

Rog: you may well be right but as soon as I saw it showing Exmoor my head was full of Stevie singing 'Isn't SHE lovely?

GYPSYWOMAN said...

how wonderful! great to have a full "station" at which to sit and create or research or whatever - i really love my desktop, too - and find my laptop just a bit too stifling [except for travel, etc] - recently i bought a "tablet" which i think will be replacing my laptop even for travel - especially because i can download books etc on it and it's so easily carried - anyway, so happy for you - and isn't it grand to have good sound, as well!

john.g. said...

How do you fit your legs under the table with all that stuff there?

Pat said...

Gypsywoman: the tablet sounds interesting - must see if I can grasp what it does.
Being without asny sound at all was awful.

John: good question. The lower shelf pulls out.

mapstew said...

Ponita in Real Life said...

Very nice! I prefer a desktop to a laptop anyday. I hate typing on a laptop. My hands just don't like it. My monitor didn't come with built in speakers either but that's fairly common these days, I think. Glad you are up and running again!

Pat said...

Map: today I hope to catch up with one of my favourite singers:)

Ponita: I would have the same difficulty typing. Now if Ican just eliminate the squeak in my swivel desk chair.

Luna said...

Very lovely Pat. Makes ME feel to write :) Enjoy!

Pat said...

Luna: and MTL has found the oil can for my squeaky chair so all is hunky dory:)

belleek said...

Pat, I'm trying to post a comment here but it is proving impossible - if I do get through, could you ask Blogger what is going on? I type the right letters but it says I haven't and then I try the sound thing which has so much background noise on it you can't hear the letters!

LL Cool Joe said...

Very nice I bet you are going to enjoy using that! Nice screen size too.

Pat said...

Belleek: you did get through. What is the sound thing?

Joey: now I come to think of it I imagine I could watch films from it?

belleek said...

Pat, there's a loudspeaker option beside the letter verification that allows you to hear the letters via speech. However, it is drowned in background noise (deliberately, I think) and delivered in an American accent which makes it impossible to understand! So no better and dreadful for those with sight or hearing impairments ....

Now to attempt those dratted letters again!

Marjolein said...

Looks a lot like my computer! :) Is everything working the way you want it to?

Pat said...

Marjolein: when I was getting photos ready to post I found it difficult to contol the dialogue on the same page. It's in draft so will try again tomorrow.
It is so much faster.

Keith said...

That's a bit posh isn't it? I'm envious. I think it's about time I modernised and threw out my very old desktop, I just can't get the wicks for it any more and I think the springs are about to break. . . .

Pat said...

Keith: it's a joy when one is used to it. You are quite a techie so will have no problems. Do it!

Lance Vartanian said...

Yes, I think you have a lovely setup. I like it that your computer desk is spacious, allowing you to click and type without nuisance. Did you buy that as a set or separately? That’s what I like about desktop computers; you could save money by buying parts separately. Anyway, I also like your wallpaper. It seems like the monitor is a window looking out the mountains and sky. ;)
