I kept my old tower HP -- It is windows XP and integrates with an older printer at the cottage. It scans my travel pix from the 90s and early 2000s. I have thousands to sort over and I will never get back to most of the places I've gone to. I have some very expensive photography programs on it and can't afford to get the updated versions. So I manipulate the pix on it and then put them on disc to transfer to the new laptop.
Sort of like the older fridges -- they weren't elegant but they never died either.
I corrected A1 but I'm not satisfied -- some of the points don't exactly match. Easier to do it over than to be irritated when I glance at it. It will be in an obvious spot and I intend to use my DJ on the bed here in Olympia.
