Laptop Lovin...

Yeah so that sounded a little dirtier than I had planned...maybe I should explain a bit. For a few months now my home computer has been on the fritz and acting up non-stop. I thought it must be from all the junk (pictures, music, games) that are on it, so I got rid of a lot of it. Now when I say a lot of it, I mean like 8 gigs worth of stuff off the desktop!! So of course afterwards it runs like a dream right?!?! NO!!! It is still slower than a snail, freezes more than ice cream, and seriously locks up worse than a 70 year old's short, it sux!
Now Jayson's first thought it, well time for you to get a laptop Lisa...let the girls have the desktop for thier homework and games, and you get a laptop for school. Now let me be totally honest...the "kid" in me jumped for joy screamed YAY YAY YAY and did cartwheels at that moment. The adult part of me began to weep a little...just thinking about the money it was gonna take to get it done.
Now, a full month and some later, I finally have that laptop. Partly becuase I had to be convinced (strongly) that it was the best idea in this situation, and partly cause if I'm spending this much money on something, I'm certainly gonna research it WELL!!! In the end, we decided on a Toshiba Satellite from Best Buy. I have only had it a week or so now, but I am already in love with it. The portability, the ability to do homework AT SCHOOL, the ease of typing, being able to store all my school stuff on MY computer, and most of's mine.
Ok, so that sounded a little selfish I know, but to be honest...this is the first piece of electronic equipment that I have ever owned. Always shared a cell phone with someone, shared radios with siblings, and even my MP3 player belonged to someone else before me. This I picked out just for me just cause I researched it, found the best deal, and loved it. I guess that is a bit selfish after all huh?!?!?
