I finally was in enough desperate need of retail therapy, that I went and bought a laptop. Not the one I posted about earlier though, I got a better version.
This is the one I got.
I have to say I am very impressed with it, plus, until I get my wireless router set up, I can "borrow" my neighbor's wireless connection. He seems to be a very generous guy. The only thing I am having a problem with is that it is set up for dual monitor, and I can't figure out how to change it. I may have to actually open the manual (ohmygawd).
This is very cool, I am blogging from my bed. Absolutely sublime.
