I always buy Dell computers. That is not the learning curve. Windows 8 is the learning curve. I have had XP for years and I learned easier, younger! Oh well, I have had it less than a day and I am learning it. Maybe not learning but getting used to it. I bought the Inspiron 15 and I do love the num pad. the screen is wider but shorter so all of my keys are at a different place.
The old computer was full of photos so I am hoping I get get them off before the big crash!
