New Computer!

I've had a fun week, getting to know my new computer!  I haven't posted in a long time, and I thought my next post would be all about our recent Easter trip to California.  But I left my best camera there; it's not yet arrived here, and so, I couldn't get to all the wonderful California photos.   Instead, I share this news and this photo, taken with my old digital camera!

I love everything about my new iMac.  The monitor is bigger than the one on my old Dell.  What you see here is all that I have--no tower, no separate speakers, no Webcam perched on top--everything built into the sleek and big monitor.  And I didn't even buy the biggest!  But there's so much more that I love--too much to list here.

Truth to tell, making the adjustment from a PC to a Dell isn't duck soup. [Wonder what the origin of that idiom is?  Must check that out!]   But I am having fun learning.

Some things I've figured out on my own.  For example, I just plugged my old Sony digital into a USB port, clicked on iPhoto, and sort of felt my way through putting a picture in an album on iPhoto and then selecting it for this blog post.  Other more complicated procedures I've had to call the help-line at Apple to get some expert help.

I hate to admit that I have spent this entire week messing around with my iMac.  But being a bit under the weather and not having much energy, I've sat here at the computer and had a chance to begin my acquaintance with it!


  1. Congratulations on your new baby. You will continue to find so many treats and surprises on it. I am interested what you will do with making a book or a movie using their iLife. I like the desk that puts it at the proper height!

  2. Yes, this is the computer desk on which I had my PC. It is good in terms of height, and now with that tower gone, I have more storage room! This picture is deceptive, however, for here things look so neat, but all the mess is hidden!

  3. What a delightful new "toy" you have. I have already thought you were good with pictures and innovative uses of your old computer, so this new imac will bring even more surprises.
