New Toy!!!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the first entry from my newest foray into the computing world. I finally have a laptop, a Compaq Presario V6015NR V6105NR to be exact. There was a good price on it at Best Buy, only $699.99, so I figured, what do I have to lose. It seems to be doing good so far. It’s not the top of the line one, but the salesman did tell me that all the laptops preloaded with XP are disappearing because Windows Vista is getting ready to come out. Greg tells me that this new Vista is getting rid of the start button and doing something else with it.

If Microsoft is reading this, I have a few words for you:

If it ain’t broke… don’t fix it.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, I do agree.

It’s good to have portability and some capability now. I’ll get around to posting the specs at a later time and the reason why I got this, but it’s 6:10 AM, have to get some sleep before class.

  1. It’s funny you should mention Best Buy, becuase at the BB location in Duluth, I got an eMachines T5048 desktop with Windows Media Center editon(!) that’s also capable with Vista. I’m glad I got a new (in my eyes) PC before the XP machines were disappearing. Upon that purchase, we got a slip telling us about a rebate involving Vista. I don’t remember how that process works, but we sent it in the mail. I plan on using Media Center edition for more than a few months.
