Re: A 'hidden cost' of being a pro

I just re-read your message, and realized that I missed something.

Your main issue seems to be the cost in terms of time and effort involved in moving to a new machine.

In this case, you went through most of the time and effort, only to find out that the motherboard was defective.  If you have the unit fixed, you are without it during the repair.  If you have them replace the machine with a new one, you need to repeat the time and effort involved in setting up your new machine.  Neither option is ideal.

This is not an issue with computers in general.  it is only in issue for low cost computers that don't come with software to automatically handle the migration for you.

Some computers come with software that makes this process simple and easy.  Had you bought one of those computers, you would have saved many hours of time and aggravation.

This is an extra cost of your choice of computer, not a cost of computers in general.
