Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

Yes. It definitely came early for me!

Just realized the Rakuten was "up to 10%" so I got only 1% for the electronics. Still...6% total wasn't bad. Paid for almost half of the Office suite. :D

Re: Deep Discounts on Office and Windows 10 Pro

You'll love Outlook. I got so used to using it at work I had to keep using it. It's got so many nice features besides the emails...calendar, to do list, reminders, etc.

Re: Deep Discounts on Office and Windows 10 Pro

Thanks, Drac. I had read that Pro only offers more security features that would be good if run in a professional environment, but I wanted your take because I know you and respect your opinion. I'll definitely spill for the Office Suite. Another price that cannot be beat for a product I already use ...

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

Thanks, Drac! I will appreciate your expertise.
BTW...in addition to the sweet deal on the laptop, I also got 10% cashback through Rakuten, and 5% cashback from Discover! That'll buy me the Office Suite you posted about in the other thread.

Re: Windows 10 Pro License Discount

Thanks, Drac. It's supposed to arrive tomorrow. It always takes a while to get used to a new computer. I will likely still use my Windows 7 laptop for some things. It's still running great. That's why I decided on another Asus. How hard of an adjustment will it be getting used to Windows 10?

Re: Deep Discounts on Office and Windows 10 Pro

These will be great with my new laptop. I have Office 2007 on my Windows 7 laptop. I use Excel, Word and Outlook routinely. I don't think 2007 has been tested with Windows 10.
My new laptop will come with Windows 10 Home installed. What are the advantages, Drac, of upgrading to Pro?

Re: Black Friday!

Our Thanksgiving was spent at my niece Cheryl's who wanted to host this year at the old homestead. We gave Cheryl Mom's house after she had passed since Cheryl was living there as the caretaker. She has clearly made the place her own and did a wonderful job hosting. Most of the family was there, sav...

No problem, Kickaha. You're only a couple days late, and I didn't get any younger in the meantime! Thanks for the belated wishes!

Re: Air Fryer's

Good for you, Stella! Sounds like a success! As to the olive oil sprayer, the one I got is a Misto sprayer. I found it at Walmart after first doing a search on the website, saw they had them in stock at my store. Found it in the housewares "gadget" aisle. They also carry them at Target.

Re: Air Fryer's

I got mine at Walmart. They had the smaller one on sale, but when I got to the store, I decided to spring for the bigger one. So glad I did. I never realized I was ruining my pans with the aerosol spray oils. Apparently the propellants are damaging to the coating. Who knew?
