I was really impressed with the new search function of Windows 7. Its not just for files anymore, you can search for functions that the OS performs.

That sounds useful.

I shouldn't be so negative. I am sure that there are improvements beyond the phenomenal growth of memory capacity and speed. I was looking at an external HD with 1.5 TB for about $80. I bought one 2 years ago with 250 GB for about that price. This incredible pace of development leads me to want to wait another 6 months when I can get more for less. I guess eventually I will have to take the step.

Electronics are a little different than all the other hardware that I own. I don't hesitate to tear apart my fridge or furnace or the engine in my car fix them up and put them back together with good success. The last time I took a computer apart I ended up with a really cool wind chime.

What I really want is something that is extremely robust without a lot of the bells and whistles. A truck rather than a sports car. I don't mind being a yr or 7 behind the leading edge.

I am used to knowing how the things around me work but I have failed to keep up with computers. I need to find a computer guru who I can trust to sell me good used stuff.
