On March 2, I shared with you my story about my new computer from Staples. I was thrilled that I could drop off my old Windows 7 PC, pick up my new one, and the folks at Staples would make sure that all of my files were transferred and my e-mail was set up! I brought my new computer and the old one to the Staples Easy Tech desk at the front of the store. They explained that when you buy a new Windows 7 PC from Staples, you receive a free PC-to-PC file transfer. I left the experts to do their magic, and in a couple of hours, they called me to pick up my new computer! The Staples team moved my files, transferred all of my photos and music onto my new laptop, and it was all at no extra cost! What a relief to have Staples do all of that work at the store. When I brought my new laptop home, it was ready to rock. The Staples team even offered me Windows 7 and Microsoft Office Online Training for free. And while the offer was generous, I did not have any questions for them. I am loving Windows 7. I feel like I have quicker access to all of my files. I can use the Jump Lists to keep the files and programs that I use most, right at my fingertips. I also thinks its easier for create photo slideshows and share them on various social media platforms. A lot of the tasks I do just seem quicker now. I can manage open windows more easily, by dragging their borders to the edge of my screen. I cannot recommend Windows 7 and the Staples service enough! If you are at home wanting a new computer, but do not want to go through the hassle of file transfers, you know you can go to Staples and they will take care of the hassle for you! Note: Thanks to Staples for their generous gift card for the new laptop. One lucky winner will receive a $50 GIFT CARD to Staples!
