Setting up New Laptop - Question
Apr 16, 2011

My new XPS15 is arriving on Tuesday and I wanted to get some input into setting it up.

My plan was to:
1. Start and set up PC as per Dell instructions (user name/pswd)
2. Connect to wifi and download any updates
3. Create recovery Disk
4. Remove McAfee and install Norton (comes free with Comcast acct.)
5. Install Photoshop and Lightroom 3
6. Install MS Office and iTunes (I wonder how to get my iTunes from my old PC?)
7. Create a restore point before each install
8. Restore some other picture files from via my USB3 external drive
9. Test the USB3 CF card reader

Any other suggestions?

The specs on the PC are http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1004&thread=38171733
