Moving From a Desktop to a Laptop Computer
A newsletter reader wrote this week, asking a number of excellent questions. Here is an excerpt from that message:
1. Do you recommend any particular basic software, memory, accessory requirements for a laptop that is to be used primarily for genealogical research? I would like a laptop to which I could export slide shows for display and/or lecture purposes.
2. Will I need to buy another version of TMG [The Master Genealogist] software to download on the laptop or can I transfer the software I already own onto another machine? Is it possible to export slide-shows as long as the software programs are identical or from the same supplier?
3. What is the best way to transfer data back and forth from the new laptop into my PC, and vice versa? If that best way is by burning data into a CD-ROM, how time-consuming a process is that? I'd like a short process possible!
