Ordered a new Dell laptop and should come this week.
What things should I do first??

I hear people talk about uninstalling stuff that's useless and other things. Any guides you guys have for new computers?

It'll be my first computer that's all to myself.

Not everyone has the expertise to buy a computer. Unfortunately.

Assuming they have an IQ over 70 and fine motor skills, yes they do.


Dude, it's not for everyone. Seriously.
