New computer

I bought a new computer. I actually bought a dell (I say this not for advertising purposes, just so you know), more or less an updated and upgraded replacement for my old machine, and because they were having a flash sale with 14% off.

I love my old machine, but it is 8 years old, started with Windows 8 which upgraded to 10, but recent updates would not work any more. It has a traditional hard disk and an SSD drive which was a good compromise between cost and storage.

The CD drive no longer works, as something inside was bent or broken. The battery would not take a charge. I did have a replacement battery, but the old one would not come out. The cpu struggled at times and the fan would come on.

Other things like bluetooth and the wireless netwoking were either broken or slow.
