J. Dan Posted August 6, 2013 Share Posted August 6, 2013 Going to be really difficult to resist the urge to use this thing for music. We're not supposed to use them for personal use or install personal software on there, although for most stuff they look the other way. On my old one I had Amazing Slow Downer so I could park it next to my keys when learning new songs. Before sending in the old one, part of the instructions are to remove any unauthorized software and personal files. IT mirrors your old drive and sets the new one up with your outlook, and all your files, etc. So this one is a Dell Lattitude E6330 with Core i7, 3GHz, 16 gig ram. I think using it for recording/gigging would be pushing the personal use thing a bit too far. Plus, it may not be good for it anyway since there's so much stuff installed on it for work. 119 processes running! It's running win 7 pro, which I have on the cheapo ($180) desktop I just got for home - that one's running around 40 processes. OK, one really freaky thing. Since our old laptops didn't come with iTunes, I figured I should remove it. I copied all my music over to my home computer drive, deauthorized that computer, deleted the files and uninstalled iTunes. They included iTunes on the new laptop. I opened it expecting to need to setup my account. It opened up already logged into my personal account with my purchased music in the library. WTF? How is that possible? Did some trace of my account get left behind on the old computer that they were able to pick up to set it up?
