Getting a New Computer?

If you're in the market for a new PC, you might consider an Ultrabook.  Take a look here -

With the "newer" Windows 8.1 being released soon, Windows and these devices should be better than ever.

Wonder if Donna will let me try one?

Windows 8 Not So Bad ...

I've been using Windows 8 for many months.  When it's the only Windows OS you have, you find out more about it.  Increasingly, I'm pinning Metro Apps to the desktop task bar - the best of both worlds.

Read this article about the new start screen.  Very informative.

Is IE 10 faster?

I've been experiencing some very slow responses from Google lately.  It seems I can get my gmails faster if I use a third party email program - presently, I'm trying Postbox.  It is pretty good.

Even Chrome seems to be very slow for me (Donna hasn't experienced this slow down on her computer, but of course she has put up with the internet at work).  So, I'm trying IE in Windows 8 and it SEEMS much faster than Chrome.  Hmmmm.  I've always that Chrome to be much faster than Internet Explorer, but now I'm not so sure.

Anybody out there using Windows 8?  How to you rate IE10?
