No Worries There!
In the few weeks we've had the machine we seem to be getting along alright with it. However, our old machine came with Microsoft Office and the latest Sony video software. Both items were deal makers when I made the purchase since none of the competition offered that package with similar machines.
Dell Does Not Warranty Software
The fact that the Dell hardware failed is of no apparent concern. Adding injury to their insult, I received notice that my McAfee security software trial subscription is ending on the Refurbished model while my full subscription on my new old machine, the one I no longer possess, continues.
To their credit - Microsoft honored their part of the deal but I have only one more download available from Sony. I have spent most of the day getting that software up and running. I can make some movies At last!
Is The Monster You Know Better Than One You Don't?
My Refurbished model came with Windows 8.1. After 148 updates it informed me that I could have Windows 10 at no charge. Well, since I'm setting up a new computer anyway, why not? As bad as Windows 8.1 was; I had gotten used to its quirks. Now I have a whole new pile of quirks to get used to and these are a squirrelly bunch!
All I want to do is go sailing, tell some stories, paint a little and make some movies. Hopefully the HideAways have sailed through the worst of the tech storm and can get back to normal, whatever that is. Stay tuned!
