    Ordered new Desktop - Lenovo IdeaCentre 5


    Just ordered a new Lenovo IdeaCentre 5 straight from Lenovo.

    Allow me to explain why I ordered a Desktop:

    1. My old HP Desktop is out of warranty.
    2. The old HP Desktop is no longer getting updates from HP.
    3. It isn't compatible with Windows 11.
    4. The Lenovo should be more powerful than my HP for my photography, because it's newer and has more power.
    5. The Lenovo has been bought new and is still under warranty.

    On the other hand, I ordered a new keyboard and touch pad (You have to order the whole cover for it) for my HP 255 G7 Laptop. It is working as it should again. I just hope it can run Windows 11 when 11 is released so I won't have to buy a new Laptop too.

    God bless!

    Remember Win 10 is supported until Oct 2025... but could be used long after that, just no routine updates.

    Win 11 may not be released until early next year.. we don't know. Have you actually tried it? I find Win 10 easier to use. No real advantages in Win 11.

    This laptop is some 7-8 years old, 9s cold boot to lock screen, bought 2nd hand- I have Win 11 running on it in a virtual machine just so I could have a look at it.

    Frightening thought as an aside.. I heard something like this- apparently 1 year's production of ipads stacked on top of each other = several Empire State buildings...
