    they got my files off and saved them
    in2 weeks or so I will have the PC back
    I tried using my old Gateway laptop running Vista
    cheap PC running bad os
    arghhhh
    nothing polite to saw about that device so the less said the better
    When I was at Best Buy I notes and open box, warranteed Chromebook.
    I am on it now.
    instead of taking 3 minutes to load webpages it is loading, on same connection and page, in SECONDS
    Just edited and uploaded shot from my Nokia 808, usineed editor built in to Chrome OS

    Computer problems aside, WOW that is a GREAT photo. I love that motion blur effect but the great thing is not the entire photo is motion blurred.

    So, Lilli, you're currently in the middle of the Total Mobile Experience: Shooting with your Nokia 808 and uploading and posting with your new Chromebook. Excellent.

    But seriously, I'm sorry about your PC issues. I'd be interested in hearing a bit more about which kind of PC this is and the circumstances surrouding the failure.

    Everything I've heard about Chromebooks has been good. The key is to not bother with the expensive versions because they don't do anything more than the cheap versions. But they are nice, basic machines.

    It is a stunningly smooth image. I'm glad you are able to get online. We'd miss you!
