- Laptops: I am looking to buy another laptop, for my Dell is on its way out. I am waffling back and forth between Acer and Toshiba. What are your opinions?
- Windows 95: I have 5 computers all in working condition from Windows 95 to Windows 8. I’m trying to figure out how to get one of a kind photos off the Windows 95 one so I can get rid of it. I had a cd player installed a number of years ago but when I try to copy to it I get error messages. Any suggestions how to get the photos off of Windows 95?
