    Well, at least you are getting closer to having a new one, Patsy. I am sure that you will love it when you have the new smaller one that you can use in your comfortable chair. Keep us updated on the progress of getting the new one.

    Its an Acer - An Acer was my first computer and I shed a tear when it packed up, so I'm happy to get another
    It has lovely soft keys with no gaps. It is an 11.6 screen and looked big enough for me
    I will try to get the picture :)

    Oh, no ! That is awful ! Are they refunding your money for the lost one, I hope ? They should just be sending you out one from the company if the first one was lost. Did you get it from Amazon ? I am sure they would refund or replace it right away of you contact their customer service.

    Amazon didn't have one, otherwise I would have got it there
    No, this is a big store and yes they refunded and I re-ordered
    Just a wasted journey

    Sorry to hear that @Patsy Faye Geez:(

    I order most of my things from Ebay, no trouble with them so far and yes, they have new stuff as well. Always seem to get free-shipping, but I've never tried the overnight. Also, Walmart isn't bad, ordered my new hdd from them (hard drive for my laptop, mine is about 5 years old so having to replace some things now).

    I do hate that Chrissy - with the other laptops, I left Fabs to set them up over the years
    This time I sat with him and thought, wow - this is easy !
    Ha ! For a while - yea
    So, I've left Fabs to it .................:p

    First time using Windows 10 maybe ? The new system is a drastic change from what the older Windows OS were like. I have had the Dell for 2 years, and it is still a pain to use. This last time, it wouldn't charge up right anymore; and when The Guruette (Robin) looked at it to get it working right, she was muttering bad words and declaring her undying love for all things Apple, too.
    Turned out to just be the connection wasn't working right in the pedestal, and we are now charging it with the cord plugged in, so it was not something big. Hopefully, Fabs can get yours set up and running right with out much trouble, too.
    Computer Gurus are good to have.......

    Fabs has patience and will keep going till he gets there, me - I give up easily :p

    Just caught up with your thread about your new notebook @Patsy Faye , I hope you get it all set up to your liking, Windows 10 is a good OS, but I hate the Metro style menu, so like a lot of people I installed "Classic Shell" which gives it the familiar Windows 7 look you can download it HERE

    I really don't get on with tablets for anything other than watching movies in bed and browsing, I can't do without a keyboard and a mouse is essential.
    I bought a Lenovo 11.5" notebook similar to your Acer about 6 months ago @Patsy Faye , it is very light at about 2lbs with a 10 hour battery life and it runs very cool, being all solid state. It was on special offer on Amazon at £120 ($150) .....I took it all over India on my recent trip and had no problems with the high temperatures there. I find I use it all the time at home now despite having several desktop computers lying around here....
    Here are a couple of photos of it in a corner of my bedroom..
