No cursing or screaming or tears. That went well.

Update - now running the new computer.  The setup went so smoothly that I'm expecting the tower to suddenly levitate across the room or something.  All I did was power down the old one, then pull out everything that plugged into it one at a time, and look for a likely place to plug it into the new one.  Looks like I guessed right.
So mini tower full of one TB of harddrive and a ridiculous amount of memory.  With Windows 10 on board.  So far so good with that...
On the other hand, all I'm doing is running Firefox, and I managed to install Dropbox.  Windows 10 seems to be crammed full of all kinds of crap that I'm never going to touch.  Or even see.  Irrelevance by the bucketful.
Let's see if I'm still not screaming by tomorrow...

I'm glad it went well. New computers do tend to get a lot of stuff you will never use as free advertising (bloatware). You may eventually want to delete some of the extra programs to make more space, but for now, 1 T should be able to hold you for a while.
