I’ve mostly gotten everything up and running on my MacBook now so I’m probably going to just continue using that instead of replacing my desktop at this time. Let me just say that I’m really glad I followed the advice I found in the Lightroom community and had my catalog as well as all of my photos stored on a USB hard drive. That made switching from the PC to the Mac simple for all of my photography stuff.
Now that everything is back and working I’ve managed to get a few more pictures ready for the photo book I’m trying to put together. I’m hoping to have about 20 pages worth by the middle of June since I’d like to get the book in time to take with us on vacation in July.
