I have been wanting and needing a new laptop for a while now. I bought mine from my brother when I returned from South Africa in 2004, and I'm pretty sure he bought it new in 2001 or 2002. So, it was time! The poor thing sounded like a plane taking off...the fan was SO loud and the computer was SO slow! I've been saving since we moved to Hughes Springs, and my desire was fulfilled this past Monday! You're looking at my new 10" laptop...and yes, it's purple. Purple was not my first choice, but it was the only color in stock and since Daniel and I don't exactly live down the street from major stores, I got over the color and bought the laptop. :) It is wonderful! Now, if only I could help my almost-one-year-old realize it is not his new toy!
