New Laptop Post Part II

Well, I’ll let you all know how this turns out. I’ve ran into some problems with the new Laptop and am having to return it. In doing a bit of testing, I tried to restore the factory image of Windoze 8, and lo and behold, it would not install the OS to the SSD. It insisted on installing it to the 1Tb 5400rpm hdd. This was absolutely intolerable as the whole point of the SSD is for the speed gains with the OS, and the 5400rpm drive was for file storage.

I have been told I’ll be getting a full refund, so we’ll see how things turn out. If they don’t go my way, expect a serious rant about the company I bought it from!

Anyway, at some point today I’ll UPS it back to them and wait patiently for my money to be returned so I can start the whole process of laptop shopping again.  What a pain.

My children and wife are my life! Worked in the computer industry as a network engineer, living between Maine and Indiana for the past 20 years or so. Love to write. Love Linux, the community it has inspired, and most importantly, I can run my computer free, better than yours, even with all that money spent to "buy" your OS. Oh yeah, I think I'm funny, (though I know looks aren't everything) and you'll laugh if you read my site posts!
