The One With My Bundle Of Joy

Ah, yes, my new shiny bundle of joy! I wasn't exactly in the market for a new laptop. My HP still has factory warranty on it, it's only 7 1/2 months old...but the poor thing is falling apart. I ordered a new keyboard for it after last week's keyboard debaucle. And, I ordered wrist and cover decals (skin) that are coming from China so they should arrive in September or so....I did that because my wrist spots were really scratched up from me *gasp* using them as a mouse pad. Note to self, that's a bad idea. Well now they'll be protected.

And last night, the power cord went. I've ordered one online, because my trusty old HP will be handed over to DH. It's still a newish computer with 3 gigs of ram and a 100mb HD (tiny, huh?) so it's a nice machine but just showing some wear and tear.

I can't wait 5 days for a new cord to use the computer...and a new one was sort of in the works (just wasn't planning on getting it today)...so this morning I scoured sale ads and went shopping.

I settled on this Toshiba ... I'm excited about more ram and a larger HD...plus it's running 64 bit windows so that's a good thing too...I got a great deal at Office Depot, I paid the MSRP that Toshiba recommends but I got a $75 rebate which I will be mailing in tomorrow :)

So my day has / will be spent reloading all my software, transferring stuff from my HP via EHD and getting everything else to my liking. Had to go scouring for my mozilla add ons and such...I'm off to spend quality time with my new baby :)
