I hope that helps, but please let me know if you need clarification on any of those points. I will be here. Thank you!
Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX guess I can't do this upgrade right now. I am away from home with my laptop and I was hoping for an online download instead of ordering CDs. I hadn't used this laptop for a long time and didn't realize how out of date the OS was until I wanted to demonstrate one of the features to others.
This was an expensive answer, but I've learned a lesson (again): Do your homework and be prepared before you leave home.
Keep in mind the upgrade can take several hours so plan accordingly. Thank you!
