Hello all, from the UK (South Midlands)!
Many thanks for the helpful Tutorials - have been reading some of them and found them useful.
I've been using PCs/Windows for around 13 years in a work environment, but have never owned my own until a few weeks ago. So I'm quite a novice, but keen to learn! Here are the PC specs:
PC: Dell Inspiron 17R SE (7720) laptop.
Processor: 3rd generation Intel Core i7-3630QM, upto 3.4 GHz, 6M cache.
Display: 17.3in Full High Definition (1080p) LED.
Memory: 8GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz.
Hard drive: 1TB Serial ATA (5400RPM).
Video card: 2GB Nvidia GeForce GT 650M 130W.
Optical drive: 8x DVD+/-RW.
Wireless: Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Card (802.11n + BT 4.0).
OS: Windows 8 64-bit.
I've waded through 'Windows 8 all-in-one for dummies' book, which I found a great starting point, but realise there's so much more to learn!
I look forward to your help and assistance (and any I can give!) and thank you in advance.
Best wishes, NipNip1964.
