Receiving a new computer is great. The new computer can do things easier than the old one (hopefully), it has more features, it is more dependable, it will last longer, and it's fun. It also generally means installing the programs, setting up printers, reconfiguring settings, and many other laborious tasks that let the new computer do what the old computer already did. The same is true if the computer has been subjected to malware or extensive hardware failure; the software must be reinstalled, settings have to be reset, and after a long time one hope one is mostly back to where one were before one had to reinstall everything.
