Wow! I seem to have struck a nerve. 6 comments off of one post is awesome! I'd like to respond briefly to my previous post and the responses I got regarding Vista and Windows 2007. Yes, I got the vocabulary mixed and complained about Vista when actually Word 2007 was giving my such trouble. Honestly, I don't see too much of a difference in Vista itself, but I also don't see the point of all the "great new features" they brag about. I have no desire to record TV on my laptop. If I miss a TV program, it's not the end of my world; all I wanna do is do research and type papers.
Anyway...Thomas Hicks, my track pad does that too and it drives me up the wall! Sometimes I'm not even looking at my screen while I do my Toasted Cheese exercises so that I don't distract myself trying to edit as I go, so I have to cut and paste things all over the place to make sense afterward.
And finally to the couple of you who suggested I get a Mac...believe me, I'd love to...if only they weren't twice as expensive as a PC. Until I graduate and get a real job with a real paycheck, that's kinda not in the cards.
Thanks to all for the feedback, I really enjoy hearing what people think about what I think. :)
