I Like Office 2007!

20 05 2007

I had OpenOffice.org on my computer for awhile, but then I decided that I wanted Office 2007 instead. My gut was punishing me because I had all this OpenSource software on my computer. I had OpenOffice.org, Nvu, and Mozilla Firefox. But just a couple days ago, I realized the Office 2007 software that my Dad bought two months ago would work on 3 PCs!

So, I installed it on my computer, and I like it. The “ribbon” interface took a little bit of getting used to, but I understood it in about a day. I love all the new features it has, like when you draw a table, it will show you what your table will look like in the document!

Instead of a new Window opening, it will have pull down menus. Say if you wanted some WordArt, the selection would come down in a pull down menu. It saves me a lot of time.

If you have been using PCs since like Windows 3.0, never install this software on your computer. You will have to practically re-learn Office again. But, if you are just getting started with PCs, this Office suite is perfect for you!

My Laptop Specs

2 05 2007

Okay, I know I’ve told you that I’ve got my laptop already, but I haven’t told you the name of it or very many specs on it. So here it goes:

My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5100 ACA AS5100-3357. It is equipped with Windows Vista Home Premium, it has a 2.0 GHz AMD Turion 64 processor (one of the reviews of circuitcity.com said that it came with a 32-bit Windows Vista operating system, but since the CPU is an x64 processor, it should be running a 64-bit version). It also has a HUGE hard drive of 120 GB, and I still have 32 GB left! It has 1 GB of DDR2 memory, just enough to run the “Aero” interface in Vista. It also has 512 MB of video memory, plenty to run the Aero interface. It has an ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 GPU. I highly recommend this laptop for starters!
