If you're going to spend in the neighborhood of 1K I'd recommend looking at a Mac. New, used or refurbished. It's all I use. Faster, more stable and 2-3 times the life of a PC.

Hmm, MAC books are fine kit ..but run a distro of Linux that looks like Windows ( dump windows ) and it will fly for WAY less than the price of a Mac ..

They are a triumph of marketing over performance

..and how much was THAT ? .. The 8GB Ram model is over $1300 USD in the UK ..

As I stated earlier; I paid $919 for this and regular price on Amazon was $1399.

2.2 pound laptops

If you're going to spend in the neighborhood of 1K I'd recommend looking at a Mac. New, used or refurbished. It's all I use. Faster, more stable and 2-3 times the life of a PC.

As I noted, the prime requirement was a 14 or 15 inch laptop weighing 2.2. pounds or less and with this type of capability.

In addition, an Apple product for wife can never be considered given that, 1) I use PC and often coordinate back and forth with wife on her school projects that use various software packages, and 2) the University computers are all PC and need coordinated with also.

And, yes I know (a little about) idea that Apple's can run some Windows programs . . . but I am so limited in my abilities that I would never dream of trying to add this capability.

Windows 10 is a lot better than past Windows operating systems. The free anti virus programs is excellent to the point you won't need to buy an anti virus program.

Improving on previous releases did not really take much of an effort, considering their dismal performance ::).

You do not need to buy some excellent anti-virus programs. For 10+ years I have been relying of Softonic programs like Advanced System Care, IObit Malware Fighter, etc. (their free version downloadable) without having a single virus infecting my laptop :D.

A few years ago there was a worldwide virus attack on a few hundred thousand computers. Microsoft Defender stopped it over a dozen times that day sending me alerts each time I been hit. I didn't know what attack it was until it was in the news next day. It is a great improvement over anything they had in the past. If you choose to use other anti virus programs, turn off Microsoft Defender. Having multiple virus programs running at the same time isn't beneficial and will slow down your computer.

It's on but usually says "No actions needed". If not, it is always wrong ;).

Fifth wedding anniversary dress
« Reply #767 on: December 21, 2019, 11:55:16 AM »
Had breakfast at huge buffet this morning; then wife wanted to do some shopping . . . big surprise.
She looked mainly at sweaters; but I looked in dress area thinking about something for her for our 5th wedding anniversary tomorrow.
I have a great eye for women's clothes.  At least I think so, and many women have said so also.
Anyway, I chose this Calvin Klein dress for wife.
She balked at the price, but I insisted.
She looked great in it.
Will post some pics of her tomorrow in it, if any turn out decent.
She and I are both very non-photogenic and only 1 out of 20 or so look OK.

I said it.

Only one out of 20 is OK.

I only post that one here.

My first wife was extremely photogenic.

Note: Photogenic does not mean beautiful.  Just that each pic turns out very good without silly or terrible look on face, etc.

Current wife and I often have a terrible look on some part of face, eyes closed, etc., etc.

Unexplainable why some are photogenic and some not.

I share the same problem, i am, most of the time not photogenic.
Ex wifey was totally photogenic.

Free anniversary dessert
« Reply #771 on: December 22, 2019, 05:51:50 PM »
I always make it a point to tell hostess at restaurants that we are celebrating a birthday, anniversary or some such.

It often pays off, as exemplified by this free dessert for our 5th anniversary dinner.
