Thank you all for your input! As for Mac - I'm not so
much into that; my old computer is a Dell and it has run
for 9 years without any trouble at all! So I'll get
another Dell. They customize them, so I can get what I
want, if I know what I want. ;-) Thanks to you all, and
my brother and DH, too, I think I know now, so I'll
contact my personal salesperson.
You may want to hang on to that older computer. :-} I use
my new computer for most applications, e-mail, and the
internet, but my older one is set up for my embroidery
machine. I do have all three computers on a LAN, so I'm
able to swap files easily when I need to.

On the new Dell Inspiron 530 desktop I bought last

pre-loaded with XP PRO Service Pack 3. I wanted nothing
to do with Vista, but Dell may no
longer offer that choice.
They sell them with Windows 7 only now, and as far as
I've heard, that one works pretty well. If they's tried
to sell me Vista, I'd have paid for a downgrade, too.
Actually, Vista was one of the reasons I postponed
getting a new computer for so long. And good it was, now
I can get the right stuff for all my new discovered
I have never used Win 7, do try to find out from the sewing
machine people whether your machine and software will run
Beverly, your input helped a lot! I'll make them include
a null modem port!
I doubt very much Dell will offer a serial port/null modem
port, that technology went out several years ago as USB
became the default. If the software you plan to run
requires it, you'll probably have to find a USB-to-serial
However, I strongly suggest that you try to find them
locally. It took me four tries before I found one which
worked with my software/dongle, and I had to return the
