Remember The Commodore 64?
Norton Internet Security 2012
I just stumbled upon your site really. Your information on the Virus Removal pages has made me think about using more security on the Mac Book Pro I use.
I was thinking about investing in the Norton Security Software Suite. Would that be something you would recommend, or not?
Anyway, yes, as you mention the Sinclair ZX Spectrum I thought I would tell you all about my Commodore 64. This was my first ever computer. It was a Christmas present.
When I think now how long those games used to take to load (Cassette tapes – Does anybody remember using those?), it's mad!
Then of course it would get half way through and it would crash for absolutely no reason what so ever, and you would have to start loading your game all over again. Aaarrrghhh. All for a football manager game!
Embarrassingly I only bought my first Laptop in 2007 (a Dell) and was using a borrowed chunk of a PC on dial-up before that. I really liked the Dell and never had any problems at all.
However I took the plunge and bought a Mac Book Pro (second hand on Gumtree) last year and absolutely love it. It did take a bit of getting used to I have to say but wouldn't be without it now.
I mostly use the Mac Book Pro for my work related projects and my 4 year old uses the Dell for his Disney Junior games. He's not getting his hands on the Mac just yet!
I also have a I-pod touch. Well... I think it's mine but the wee lad thinks otherwise. I am also badly in need of a phone upgrade. The Samsung Galaxy's look pretty cool. But I would settle for anything.
Cheers for all your info and advice. It is very much appreciated.
