bumping this back up....
I read the article and performed the disk operations. My user continues to have issues with the software mentioned above. This unit is maybe a month old now and she says it performs MUCH slower than her macbook that she's had for while (don't know the specs of that its her personal).
She was having issues with the wireless keyboard for a while also but its cleared up for the time being.
I have just one question for this "individual" Who the F*** do you think you are? Go troll someplace else, trying to make yourself look like an "all knowing" god or something is just idiotic.
