Lets face it, getting a new computer is a double edge sward.  You get the latest or greatest computer, or at least better then what you had…. But know you have to not only get all your data off your old computer and onto your new computer.  Along with all your software.   Oh, and lets not forget about all your personal settings!

Good Grief!!!  It is going to take you days!  Or is it.  Well I got this press release reminding me about LapLink Software can do for folks.  It was so to the point that I’m just going to basically reprinting it below.  So do your self a big favor and read on.  And when you are done you will learn why if your buying a new computer for yourself or as a gift, don’t forget to pick up a copy of LapLink’s PC Mover!

Oh, and not only have “we” used it around here, we gave it the A-O.K. Award!

 The A-O.K. Award is awarded to products or services that are just that: A- O.K.. So, what makes them A-O.K.? Easy they just simply have to do exactly what they claim to do, and be easy to use! Now if your thinking, come on, any thing can win an A-O.K., award, then think again. When was the last time you paid good money only to find out the damn thing won’t do what it claimed, or you had to spend six days on the phone with tech support to get it to work. Makes you want to kill someone! So, it really is nice when you pay your money and you get an A-O.K. product!

A New PC is a Terrible Holiday Gift without PCmover®

A new computer can ruin the holidays because of the hassle in setting it up, even to the point some consumers may delay their purchase.

BELLEVUE, Wash. Dec. 21, 2011 - It is the peak of the PC buying season with many being purchased as gifts. Some shoppers, however, may not realize the complications their good intentions will cause the person receiving the new PC if it is given without Laplink Software's PCmover®.

The problem is rooted in setting up the new PC. Most consumers are used to their old PC’s personality and don’t know how to get their new PC set up the same way. They don’t know how to get all of their data moved over, let alone find old CDs and serial numbers to reinstall all of their applications and apply all the preferred settings. That’s where Laplink’s PCmover comes in.

“Giving someone a new PC as a gift is like giving them a huge, shiny lump of coal if you don’t include PCmover,” commented Laplink’s Director of Marketing Neil Minetto. “If consumers want to waste weeks just getting a new PC set up, that’s their choice. But, they don’t have to do that if they use PCmover, period.”

The manual setup process includes:

The problem of setting up a new PC is perceived so poorly by consumers that many will put off purchasing one just to avoid the hassle. In a survey sponsored by Intel, out of 1,200 PC users, 39% felt that migrating from an old PC to a new PC was enough reason to delay purchasing a new PC. This is a problem that PCmover solves.

With PCmover, the setup is automatic. This includes:

Users will no longer have to sacrifice hours of time and suffer multiple headaches to enjoy their new PCs.

“The move is very quick and automatic so users don’t have to do more than do few clicks to tell PCmover on what to move,” continued Minetto. “After the transfer is started, you can just kick your feet up, do some shopping or go to sleep. When PCmover is done, it can send you an email or a text message alerting you that it’s finished and you can enjoy your new PC. It’s the fastest way to set up a new PC, hands down.”

Anyone wanting their loved ones to enjoy that new PC can get PCmover online at or at most major electronics retailers in the US, Canada, Europe, and Japan.
