In the meantime I've been disconnected from the outside world. No Facebook, no MySpace, no blog, no YouTube. In other words, I had loads of time to do more productive things. Like watch American Idol. Hahah. But I also spent a great deal of time researching what I would buy to replace my old laptop. I seriously spent HOURS comparing all the different PC's. I learned more than I ever want to know about processors, frontside bus (still don't really know what that means), gigabytes, RAM... I had narrowed it down to either a Dell or Sony Vaio.
And then I talked to some friends who made the leap from PC to Mac. One friend told me, "I will never buy a PC again." She let me play with her Mac. It was pretty sweet. So today - one month after the death of my HP - I bought a Macbook. It's a pretty big change for me. I've never been an Apple girl. Macs always kinda scared me. And they seem to be for people who are members of some sort of secret elite club. But so far I'm happy with my purchase. My Macbook is so pretty and fancy! I have hours of nerdy enjoyment ahead of me. And now I'm back in the internet world. I'll still be watching American Idol, though. :)
