    What to upgrade to

    Thanks Arthur. I do have an external hard drive, but have ordered another 1tb one with the computer. I'll try (promise;)) to do some regular house-keeping and back up regularly. Hopefully it will be quicker copying files with the new one than it is with this laptop.

    Thanks Ted. Oh well - can't have everything I guess and it's bound to be an improvement on my current laptop screen I'd think.

    What to upgrade to

    Hi guys and thanks so much for all your input on my plea for advice and, to whoever it was that got me looking at AIO's. I've decided to go with this one: PORTUS PRO AIO-107 24" ALL IN ONE PC INTEL i7 11TH GEN/ 16GB RAM/ 512GB SSD / 2TB HDD / R.SCREEN Unless anyone can see a big flaw in that...

    What to upgrade to

    You mean something like this one: PORTUS PRO AIO-102 24" PRO ALL IN ONE PC INTEL i5 11TH GEN/ 16GB RAM/ 256GB SSD / 1TB HDD / R.SCREEN Not saying that's what I've decided on, just the first one I came across on Googling. However, if you say it would suit my needs I might settle on it. Are they...

    What to upgrade to

    Thanks Ian. I did see mention of some All-in-Ones somewhere but it didn't mean much, as I didn't know what spec I should be looking at LOL. I presumed it had a tower. Sooo,,,, where is the hard drive on these - sorry, can't get my head round it yet.

    Thanks Chris. So (possibly) pay more and get less. Grrrr It seems, for the same facilities, I'm going to have to get extra equipment, taking up more room in limited space, when I'm trying to de-clutter LOL.

    What to upgrade to

    Thanks Ted. Exploring that lot. I have had hubs in the past, but they all ended up going faulty, dropping the connection, which was a bit frustrating. Maybe new ones are a bit more reliable?

    @Ted Y. No, I'm not really a gamer. Patience (free ones) is about my limit LOL. I really only do basic photo editing: adjust levels, contrast, re-size and put some text and a border on.... this is about my limit of understanding of what I can do: One of the cutest of finches So I don't need...

    @Cettia Thanks for your input. I think I'd get too confused with having two screens... I get mixed up with What'sApp at times, replying to the wrong person when I've a few people trying to talk to me at the same time LOL.

    What to upgrade to

    Thanks for that Mono. As I live on my own I don't generally put the laptop away. I'd have to consider something in addition if/when I ever get away on holiday again, but that's for further down the line if I went the desktop route. Going the d/top route I'd no longer be bothered with the darn...

    What to upgrade to

    I'm the lucky recipient of around £1000 and want/need to upgrade my computer. For years I've had laptops which seem to only last about 4-5 years, whereas people with desk tops seem to have them forever and can easily upgrade them. Would there be a reason why I can't get longer life from a...
