SHOW & TELL



More participants here

Lately I wasn't happy with my HP laptop anymore. Not because of it's technical skills but because the screen was not big enough for what I am doing now, i.e. more photography and it's better to see photos on a bigger screen. I had noticed that they look completely different on Mr. G's computer then on my laptop. So I became pregnant of a new computer. It had to have a big screen but a little tower as the space in my room is reduced. Not easy to find.

But then I saw this and that was the ideal computer for my purposes. Big screen, no tower !! and rather cheap ! (400 €) I couldn't believe it and called Mr. G as he is the responsible for the technical details, I don't know how many Giga I need and all the rest. Computers are his big love (besides the cats) so he hurried over to join me in the shop. The verdict was : yes for you, it's OK. It is an Acer so called emachine ! (never heard of it)



Rosie had to help with unwrapping



and here it is in all its beauty. Enough USB plugs behind and on the side and also space for DVDs. It came along with a keyboard and a mouse.



and here is a picture of my blogging space now



a little closer look. It really doesn't take a lot of space and I so much appreciate the big screen !

I love, love the last photo...showing all your kitties sitting around and near you while you work.

And, I so agree with you and your comment you left for Kelli this morning...yes indeed! I too would rather get rid of EVERYthing in the kitchen and keep the microwave!!!

My Show n Tell is the last of my Autumn decoration. Come by if you can...I'll love having you visit.

CONCRATUALTIONS! That is wonderful! And you still have your little pocket computer for your purse! I don't want to "suggest" that my computer die... but when it does, I am not getting another big one. I will just have a laptop. But I WILL miss my screen! Right now I have a 19" monitor! I love it!

Now how smart! We are thinking about downsizing, and I don't want to give up my keyboard. This is a smart way to go:)

Tinsie said...

It looks great! Thanks for letting us know, I like to look at other people's spaces :-)

Boo-Bah said...

Well I just dropped my keyboard and I am not sure if my post went through or not. So here goes again.
I really like your new computer and big screen. It is nice that it doesn't take up a lot of space.

I love your kitty-cats. They probably think that the new computer is just for them.LOL.

Thanks for sharing.
