    Back in January, during CES, a nice lady from Lenovo and I were chatting over lunch.  She says to me, “we have this huge collection of Baby Einstein DVD’s, but we have no way to play them on the go!”  I thought about it for a second, and instantly knew the answer to her question. […]

  • 02/07/17--17:21: Lenovo Yoga 910 Review
  • Disclaimer: I was given a Yoga 910 by Lenovo as part of my involvement in their Insiders program, which is an unpaid position. People are always asking me what computers I recommend, and it usually depends on their situation, and what they will use the computer for, BUT almost always it comes back to a […]

    I was lucky enough to receive a Power Smart Tower along with my Charge Anywhere from iGo.  Not only does it look FANTASTIC on my new desk, it’s the perfect “house” for my headset.  As most of you know I run an IT helpdesk.  I use my headset all day long, and I HATE things […]

    When I was selecting a new computer to replace my XPS M1330 (aka Elle) I briefly glanced at the Adamo XPS.  I initially didn’t want it because I wasn’t sure how I’d like the wedge design.  Some of the reviews I read complained about the long end of the laptop digging into your thighs when […]

    When I was first discussing a review opportunity with Cisco, I mentioned that I probably wasn’t the best person to try out their new Cisco Valet, which is touting itself as the easiest home wireless setup ever.  Since I would already know exactly what I was doing when setting up the router, I couldn’t be […]

    Since I wasn’t the right candidate to review the Cisco Valet, Cisco also decided to send me a router that was more up my alley.  Enter the Linksys E3000 (also made by Cisco).  I was so excited when this came in the mail.  Our previous router was also a Linksys, and it was still working perfectly, […]

    I know you’ve heard me say it over and over again.  You KNOW you have to backup your computer.  Hardware fails every single day, and if you don’t have a plan in place to backup your computer you are just asking to lose all of your pictures/videos/documents etc!  I prefer backing up to an external […]

    I absolutely hate being limited to the area of a mouse pad.  I have a glass desk though, so I had to use a mouse pad.  That is until I received the Logitech Performance Mouse MX.  This mouse has Darkfield Laser Tracking, which enables the mouse to track, even on glass surfaces.  Microsoft’s mouses can’t […]

  • While at CES my husband and I were walking around the different booths when I saw out of the corner of my eye a gorgeous booth with the Swiss Army Knife logos everywhere…. I thought to myself… “What the heck is Swiss Army doing at CES?”  I had to go check it out!  Little did […]

    For a few days I had been trying to figure out an issue in my home.  It was really bugging me, and I just couldn’t pinpoint the source of the problem!  I was trying to get my downstairs computer to communicate with my upstairs computer, and namely the printer upstairs.  The printer itself is wireless, […]

  • 04/13/12--13:43: Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review
  • A few weeks back, my awesome friends at Dell asked me if I had gotten myself a Dell XPS13 Ultrabook yet, and if not, was I interested in getting one?  I of course responded with the fact that they must not know me as well as I thought they did, as I am ALWAYS down […]

    I have made the joke often that there are more computers in the house than people.  It’s kinda easy to do when there are only 4 people in the house, and I personally use 3 computers.  I have my work desktop, because I work from home full time, and I have my main personal laptop […]

  • 11/27/12--14:00: Kingston SSDNow V300
  • Alright ladies. Let’s talk hardware. Sometimes with our laptops, and netbooks, and notebooks we fill up our hard drives and need a little extra room, am I right? Here’s where Kingston comes in. Kingston makes multiple products that give your tech devices more space. Some are installed internally (which means they go inside your computer […]

My kids share a laptop (I have 2 kids) and then my husband uses the downstairs computer.  That’s 5 computers, for a 4 person household.  Not to mention phones (I currently have 2 that I use regularly), tablets, the Roku, Playstation, xbox, you are getting the […]

    First I want to say… pardon my dust around here.  You may see the design of my website change from day to day as I try to perfect my new design.  I had a great one, but it started crashing my site, so I’m back to the drawing board.  While it’s not perfect yet, it’s […]

Now a days the really nice ones run closer to $850—plus you’ll want a keyboard, and case and everything. A decent laptop (Not talking about a chromebook. I’m talking about one with a usable […]
