Hmm, what can I buy today?

A laptop maybe?

My laptop had been acting strange for a while, it kept shutting down and just weird in general. Yesterday it decided to die on me completely: It would shut down right after starting up. When I was lucky it lasted 30 minutes. Not good! So today I went out and bought myself a new laptop! I didn't really save up for one, so I had a small budget, but I managed to find a decently priced one.

Now I just have to go through the whole re-installing everything. Booooring. But at least I have a working (and pretty!) laptop again!

And Vista! I feel like an old woman saying I really have to get used to that. Whenever I'm used to something I hate change. When I first got XP I remember using the old layput forever, because the XP one annoyed me so much. I haven't looked if I can set this to XP settings, but I'm so tempted!

  7. vista's not too bad once you get used to it though - just annoying office07 isnt supported by previous versions.

    a tip with vista though! you'd have to keep using it - otherwise it really slows your computer/laptop down :( my bf recently told me this.. - no wonder my laptop slowed down alot (even tho i dont use it often).. and its still reasonably new (under 6 months)!
