It’s been a long time coming but finally, after over a year and a half, it’s going to happen. I’m going to FINALLY get that New Laptop that I’ve been needed oh so desperately for all this time! Ever since my old laptop died I’ve been either trying to find ways to get it fixed without spending money or ways to replace it with something that’s at least as good as (if not better than) the old one.
I had long since come to the conclusion that having a good laptop is not just a convenience or a cool idea. It is, without question, an absolute necessity. Partly because I have plenty of work to get done in spite of the fact that I cannot be at my desk without distractions for nearly enough of the day to even come close to getting the things done that I need done. And partly because There’s all too many times these days when I just can’t stay at home all day and work. I end up having to go to the store, take somebody somewhere, doctor visits both for myself and other family members that I need to be present for or help provide transportation to. The list goes on and on.
In my search for a replacement machine I’ve crawled so many sale pages that I can’t begin to count them however finally I’ve found something that, thanks to this years refund-that-very-nearly-didn’t-happen, not only is affordable but will also very likely handle more than it’s predecessor could.
What’s really cool is that this is a new machine I’m talking about. I haven’t been able to do better than a second hand piece of crap since 1985 and frankly I DESERVE to get a new computer for once.
