Also note that Norton "temp" accounts seem to be automatically erased every 6 months. I found that if I waited long enough I would be able to reinstall with a trial period reset again. But considering I never really use any antivirus software, it's been a long time since I even bothered. So long as you keep your OS up to date and don't download/run a bunch of stuff, you're usually pretty safe from viruses.

Well, I decided to get a Mac, mostly because the options between a Dell and a Mac were very limited.  I thought the transition would be harder, but I've been working most of this afternoon to get the computer running the way I want it.  It's been surprisingly easy to find similar programs for everything I used on Windows.  The only thing that bugs me is the trackpad, but then again, I've never been a fan of trackpads.

At least it's 5 pounds.  x.x  I switched computers on my desk today and there was definitely a difference.  I have a feeling that my shoulders will be much happier.
