Also, thoughts on Windows 7? Am thinking about getting the Professional version to use Office XP more easily as I understand the Home version of Windows 7 doesn't play well with Office XP. Thanks for your advice!
    As far as a recommendation for a computer computer Dell and HP are about the same. At the USAF Base where I work they offer computer software for home use at a cut price. We can get Symantec Antivirus (Norton) and others FREE. they also offer Microsoft Office Pro, you just pay shipping $21, now that's a deal. The new version should work fine with Windows 7.
    If you work for DOD check the Base home Page for:

    As part of a new offering from Microsoft, you are eligible to participate in the Home Use Program (HUP).

    You are eligible to order Office 2007, although, you already ordered an earlier copy of Office Pro 2003.

    For each product eligible for the Home Use Program for which you are a licensed user with active Software Assurance coverage, you may order a single copy of that product to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using this HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the software

    Only $9.95 now and you can download direct to your PC.

    Now you can use Microsoft® Office Enterprise 2007 at home. It’s easier to get organized and complete projects with programs you already know and trust. Enter your work email address and find out if you qualify to purchase: This is a good thing to have installed as well.

    Fellow TSP'rs, Anyone having problems with getting the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 to update. Mine keeps failing to update. I've tried Microsoft's suggestions but so far no luck?

    No problems with windows 7, my agency makes MSOffice 2010 available for next to nothing through an ITS help desk ticket, I paid a few bucks extra to ship the hard copy, they make great shiny coasters and tree ornaments.
