As I mentioned a few days ago, my old laptop, the Toshiba, is dying. I ordered a new laptop from Lenovo, an IdeaPad Y510, and it arrived yesterday. After it arrived, I spent some time tweaking its setup. I downloaded and installed Itunes, OpenOffice, and Firefox – three free programs that, together, allow me to manage my music, organize my documents, and surf the web. So far, I’m really impressed with the new laptop, and I think I made a good choice when buying it.
It’s never easy for me to make a “major purchase”. I, quite frankly, don’t like to spend money. My wife says that I worry, a bit to much, about our future, and that I should spend more time enjoying the present. (I’ve been researching new laptops for more than a year, if that gives you a better understanding of how much I hate to spend money.) I’m sure that my wife is right (she pretty much always is!) – but I can’t help it. 🙂
