WOW, microsoft xp to microsoft 8, new custom built system, and I'm FLYING!  I hope I can be here more often now.  I say custom built, I get them that way so memory and resources are not dragged down by applications and software that I DO NOT NEED.  It is cheaper to have a system built than to buy in the box!  

My new baby:

I like the Windows 8 so far!  So many pages work better than they did before.  I don't pay much attention to the apps, I'm a menu driven user (it's my DOS demon talking).  

The antique radio case cost me a little more but I think it looks FABULOUS and is much less annoying as part of my living room.  I never liked laptops, wound up giving two away.  I'm shopping for an iPad, though, I have an old one that my sweetie really likes but I'd like a newer one too.  My sweetie is scared of his desktop computer, and I have not had time to make him comfortable with it, but he likes to schmooze on my iPad.  I think because it doesn't have a "real" keyboard.  He's not a typist, he's a truck driver...LOL!

How do you like the windows 8?  With all the apps.  Yes part of your computer looks like my radio/phonograph/cd player/tape player thing I got many years ago.
So are you have much fun with your new computer?  Well, I better check my muffins now.  See ya later...............

Karen, that's awesome! So glad you're flying around now. :)

I really need a new computer, but I can't part with my baby. They don't make them like they used to. *sniffle*

I'd love to get a new computer! I stick with laptops just so when I lose internet I can take my work to Starbucks ;) I'm so intrigued by the case, how did you do that? It looks like an antique radio, very cool!
