A big time saving hint.

Since this is your first computer you will, sooner or later, find it acting up in some manner.

Before running off to some expert for repairs do this simple test:

1) Fill bathtub with warm water
2) Add 3.25 lbs (or metric equivalent + 25% duty)
3) Stir until salt is completely dissolved (add water if necessary)
4) Gently place computer on top of the water. Avoid splashing !
5) If it sinks to the bottom of the tub it was defective and should be replaced and not repaired.

. . . you are welcome!
