I have been doing all my digi scrapping on our laptop, which is fine. I love our laptop and the convenience of it. But I have to say that doing digi scrapping has been so much harder that way. Having to always hook up to an external hard drive to download and access pictures and making sure there is enough free space to do a big project - simply a pain.
So when our laptop started acting strangely (not waking up from the sleep mode unless you touch the on/off button), we decided to go ahead and get a desktop. We'd been talking about it for months so this was the push we needed. We wanted to have all our media consolidated and on one source, as opposed to two external hard drives and flipping back and forth. Plus, the possibility of losing it if an EHD failed was scary.
So, without further adieu, here is our new baby.
Being able to access the photos right away and working with that big screen is going to be fantastic!!! Can't wait to do my first layout on it!
