    Default Lucky me, Getting a new and improved laptop.

    Finally getting a new laptop. The better half wants my old Lenovo and this is all I can afford but it should run TRS19 tons better than the old integrated graphics thing I've had for the last few years.

    Hello Chuck

    After all these years one would think that Laptop prices should have gone down --- It's like internet prices, same thing!

    Anyhow, sir, good luck, and have fun, indeed!!!

    Take Care

    Thanks ish. Since I'm using a laptop more than my desktop these days (serious health problems) I'll sure put it to good use.

    Hello Chuck,

    Sorry to read about your health issue, sir -- Laptop does a good job when facing health issues, indeed!

    I never used it at the Hospital because I had so many machines attached to me, however, when the time came to do rehab at the Hospital, walking. etc with my nurses I glanced at other rooms, and actually saw people using their laptops since the Hospital had free wifi!

    All the best for your health, sir
    Ish

    Yeah ish. I have a rare genitic disease and may be facing a double transplant for a liver lung transplant. When it happens, We'll be away from home for 3-4 months and the laptop will be my only machine. The liver transplant will be for sure, just finishing up a slew of tests before I go on the list but I see a lung specialist today and that may be part of the operation. Will be nice to be able to breathe again and not have the massive fluid buildup I now have among other issues.

    You might like to look at Newegg.ca they have GTX 1050 TI for roughly the same price or a little cheaper and one GTX 1060 laptop. The GTX 1050 laptops are available for under $1,000.

    Bless U on your journey, sir --

    On a side note: Finally got my test results to reverse the colostomy, and surgery has been dated for Dec 19 -- I ask for this day, since I got two little girls at elementary school, so they'll be home during this time-frame! Mother-in-law will be overlooking them!

    Back to the laptop -- I have talked to my wife about getting one just for emergency, like a hospital stays. Etc … nothing fancy, just powerful enough to run T12, since that's the platform I use to make contents! Just to create assets … We'll see! LOL

    Congratulations on your new machine, Chuck. Even if you weren't facing major health issues which seem to be really, really scary ones, you can always take your laptop and sit out on the deck and Trainz away in the fresh air.

    Yup the warmer days will have to wait. It's a bit chilly here too with ice on the pond in the backyard proving it with it beginning to ice over.
