The new Windows computer I wrote about in an earlier post, was really good, but it had serious issues with overheating. Without doing anything at all on it, it got so hot so I couldn’t hold my hand beside it on the desk. The fan was going almost constantly. I googled it, found that oodles of people had this problem with this model, but I didn’t find any solutions. Except opening it up and vacuum, which I, of course, had NO intention of doing — it was brand new, for Pete’s sake!
Considering the fact that it was just that; brand new, and I already sensed problems … I made a decision last night … I’ll turn it back in. I had 90 days, no questions asked.
Now I have my MacBook back, I hope and pray it will work for a long time. Those issues, with the graphic/video card [or whatever], only appear intermittently and I don’t know how serious that is. It’s not as if it renders it unusable. Several days can go by without any symptoms at all. It will turn two years old in September.
I feel good now, that the decision is made, and I’m back. It was an interesting journey with Win8.1 though … I’ve learnt something: «You can never go home!» … meaning, nothing will ever be the same and that’s true for computer operating systems too 🙂
…and here’s McDuff, resting on the couch — my place, of course — after an exhausting trip to see his family doctor. He had his annual check-up and his pedicure. His claws grow into the pads when he doesn’t have them clipped, and I can’t do it myself.
I was so proud of him; he didn’t pee in his carriage all the way out there … not until we were sitting in the waiting area, with all the animals around him. Then, he couldn’t hold it back. They have two cats walking around there, Percy and Nermal … they’re really cool cats, but they were sniffing around his cage. He’s never met any other animals so I guess that’s a shocker each time.
