Y'ALL! MFA Mama reader Jessica, of Idol Analytics fame, SAVED ALL OF MY DATA FROM THE OLD LAPTOP! All of my music, all of my pictures...why, it's almost enough to make me kindly disposed toward Dell in restrospect! I mean, I had a dying old laptop with all of my data, and then I didn't have a laptop at all for a month, which sucked, but now--NOW? Now I have Das Uberlaptop, WITH all of my data on it, which beats the old dying laptop hands-down, and all it cost me was several small rage-strokes and a month of computer time. Which wasn't even that bad thanks to The Precious. So the morals of this story are 1) warranties are good to have, 2) Apple >>> Dell, and 3) everyone needs a Jessica.
And how are all of YOU?
