K peeps, thanks to everyone who helped me figure out what kind of laptop I needed to buy. Now can I impose further on your tech-savvy goodwill to help me adapt to the new machine?
Is there a way to migrate as much stuff as possible from my old laptop over the net? I didn’t buy the $40 USB-USB cable. Was that a mistake?
Can I get bookmarks, etc., from my old Firefox to the new? Can I migrate software–programs, exe’s–without the discs? All my discs were stolen this summer. I have a “passport” external drive, if that helps.
Again, I understand that this is a one-way street: all I can offer in return is gratitude and attitude. So I humbly appreciate your help.
