Merely Adequate...

Pyper here...typing on my beau-ti-ful new laptop. It is a fabulous day when you can finally sit on a comfy couch and type to your hearts content.
So, what am I going to type? Anything I freakin want to!!! Mwha-ha-ha!

Seriously though...the laptop buying experience was a tangle of specs, pricing and antivirus/spy ware mumbo jumbo. At one point the sweet salesman pointed out that I could either go for something merely adequate (for documents and music) or a notch or two above. Being the indecisive person that I am, I left the store without purchasing a darn thing. A laptop is a big commitment for such a little item. After a couple of hours, dinner and a thrilling game of pop your neighbors balloon and 2 truths and a lie, I forced Amy to accompany me back to the store. A new sales man pointed out several great features and a couple of new options. After reviewing the specs (yet again) and applying for my in store credit card to get financing until my tax return hits the bank I finally decided on a sweet little deal with enough memory and hard drive space to make my Dad ask if he can have it when I die (and while I consider myself 'old', I'm hopefully a good 50 years from the grave).

Listening to Harry Connick Jr on the cold drive home, Amy noted that he's a hot youngin with a head that's a leetle too small for his fantastic body! Just food for thought :-)

Glad you found a laptop you like. You should name it. Mine is named "The-Denzel."
